Welcome

Our high-achieving Sixth Form is an exciting part of the Westminster Academy journey. We pride ourselves on offering personalised courses for each learner and on our high expectations of all students.

Our supportive and highly knowledgeable team works closely with students to ensure they are on track to achieve their future goals. Top extra-curricular opportunities through our business and community links provide unique experiences to contribute to personal statements and CVs.

As an IB World School, we are one of a select group of state schools offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. The IB is known around the world for its academic rigour and for developing independent, critical thinkers. Students study a broader range of subjects than the traditional A Level course, ensuring they are well prepared for university and beyond; recent evidence from HESA (the Higher Education Statistics Agency) shows that IB students do significantly better at university than those with other equivalent qualifications, including A Levels.

We are also one of the first schools in the world to offer the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme. Reflecting the Academy’s specialism in International Business and Enterprise, students study a vocational qualification in Business, Creative Media and ICT, while also completing IB Certificates (each broadly equivalent to an A Level). It is a fantastic choice for students who prefer a balanced mixture of academic and vocational study.
