Students from the Westwood school can benefit from the centres facilities, such as the astro turf pitches as the centre is open to Westwood school students until 5 p.m., when it is then handed over to the public. In 2008, The Westwood School gained a 'Trust' school status with the Local Authority, Warwick University, Coventry Sports Foundation and a local ICT company. The school recently gained The BECTA ICT Mark in recognition of its use of ICT in teaching and learning (the only school in Coventry to have gained this award).

The school was previously known as Alderman Callow School and Community College, built to serve the nearby Canley housing estate; however the estate was never completed to its original anticipated size, meaning the school has always had a significantly smaller intake than other schools in Coventry.
