Ethos, Mission and Values

"Education is Success"

In 2013 Westminster Academy students voted on a new mission: "Education is Success".

 

To fuel our mission the Academy strives to ensure every student leaves as a well-rounded young person with exceptional examination results. We aim for our students to achieve their spiritual, moral, social, cultural, intellectual and physical potential, equipped for the responsibilities and opportunities of modern life. We achieve this through the dedication of a talented staff body, as well as our smaller class sizes, personalised curriculum and extensive extra-curricular programme.
