Westminster Academy’s ethos is built around the student-centred and internationally-minded values of the International Baccalaureate. Students enjoy curriculum journeys rich in breadth, depth and challenge meaning that subjects and disciplines are valued at all stages and students maintain a broad curriculum all the way from Year 7 to 13.
Within this, all students in Years 7 to 13 explicitly study a modern foreign language, English and mathematics alongside their other subjects. The development of subject specific skills and knowledge through our seven year curricula prepares students for undergraduate courses at the world’s best universities, vocational study and rewarding careers. Students work to develop their thinking, social, communication, self-management and research skills through teaching and learning activities which focus on conceptual development, relevance, collaboration, differentiation and student-driven inquiry.

The Westminster Academy curriculum has been planned to build skills, knowledge and understanding through distinct but interrelated journeys into each of our subject-based disciplines. Our curriculum booklets have been written to communicate our intent for learning in each subject, and then to show how learning develops at each stage of learning.
However, we do appreciate that you might like to see all of the curriculum for a particular year group, so this can be accessed through the 'curriculum by year of study' document available below.
