Welcome to Westminster Academy

At Westminster Academy we have a deep and genuine commitment to provide an education that is unsurpassed anywhere in the world.
 
Our mission is ‘Education is Success’. This captures the sense of optimism and determination to succeed that permeates Westminster Academy. We aim to develop resilience in our students, and the ability to be tenacious in their quest to be the best that they can be in all aspects of their lives. We draw out their individual talents and celebrate their personal achievements and their individual contribution. 
 

Education is Success

Westminster Academy provides an award-winning education. We have huge ambition and aspiration for every student, and our commitment to their success is combined with excellent pastoral support to make sure that students feel safe, secure and successful at all times. We enable our students to discover genuine interests that extend beyond the classroom and to express themselves by encouraging a broad understanding of the world, a social conscience and a considerate approach to other people. We strive to ensure that Westminster Academy students have an understanding of their place in society, both locally and globally and seek to make positive impact upon it.
 
At Westminster Academy students develop a passion for learning and a capacity for independent thinking. We have a strong record of academic success which is reflected in our outstanding GCSE and IB results. Both achievement and progress are well above the national average. Students also excel in sports and expressive arts and develop as well rounded and confident global citizens. We offer a wide-ranging academic and vocational curriculum and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and Career-related Programme in our Sixth Form. Our teachers are enthusiastic, dedicated, highly qualified professionals who make sure that every student achieves their full potential.

True to the aims of our sponsors, we encourage intellectual curiosity, entrepreneurial spirit and we foster a real sense of communal endeavour. We are an inclusive, positive, stimulating and demanding open-minded community.
 
We experiment, we demand, we persevere. Westminster Academy is a place of high expectations, huge ambition, scholarship; a place where courtesy and manners matter, a place where hard work, and a genuine commitment to achieve will assist success; 'Education is Success'.
