A message from the Principal
West Niagara Secondary School will serve students and families in the towns of Grimsby, Lincoln and West Lincoln and is scheduled to open in September of 2022.
It will be a state-of-the-art facility that brings the best learning opportunities to all students. We will combine the specialized programs from our current schools - Beamsville District Secondary School and Grimsby Secondary School - and add to that based on student choice and voice. This set of programs will include French Immersion, Specialized School to Community and Specialized School to work. We will offer a wide range of technological subjects including Hospitality and Tourism, Horticulture, Computer Technology, Health Care, Transportation (auto), Construction (wood), Manufacturing and Welding, Design, TV and Video, Food Processing and Cosmetology (hair and esthetics) - all in brand new facilities. Our academic offerings will be extremely diverse and provide the learning that students want and need in order to gain entrance to and succeed in the best post-secondary pathways - colleges, universities, apprenticeships, the workplace or the community.
Our synthetic turf field and competition-level quadruple gymnasiums will host our wide variety of athletics - Football, Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, Track and Field, Badminton, Field Hockey, Rugby, and Ultimate. Rowing, Baseball, Three-Pitch, Tennis, Golf, Curling, Cross-Country and Ice Hockey will continue off site.
Our state of the art greenhouse will provide amazing learning opportunities for students interested in agriculture, horticulture, and green industries.
More details will be shared, over time, on this website - stay tuned! Also, please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have by phone or email (see below).
I am so excited to work with students and staff moving forward to provide amazing learning opportunities for all.

Branding & Mascots
The academic shield logo and colours were designed to serve, represent, and inspire students from all areas of West Niagara. The navy and sky blue represent the water and sky - beautiful elements of our location in the Niagara Region near the shore of Lake Ontario. The sky blue will serve as our primary colour for athletics. The red and yellow components of the shield are connections to Beamsville District Secondary, Grimsby Secondary School and South Lincoln High School- we are proud of our heritage and carrying it into the future. West Niagara Secondary School students will regard our shield and colours as symbols of pride, love and respect for our school and communities. The West Niagara Secondary School shield will represent the high levels of academic achievement our students will attain and the innovative and broad programming our school will offer all students.
Our athletic mascots are The Wolfpack - three wolves representing three Towns: Grimsby, Lincoln and West Lincoln. Students from across these areas will be proud to be parts of our Wolfpack - competing together with heart, tenacity and skill. Our school and teams will bring students and communities together through collaboration and a shared passion for winning - a true Wolfpack.
