Student Voice

Westminster Academy attaches great importance to student voices.  This section of our website is for our students to share their experiences and views.

Our Student Ambassadors welcome visitors to WA and provide tours of our site.

Our Student Prefects have a variety of roles, including Subject Prefects who meet with Directors of Learning for their respective subject areas to discuss the student experience in that subject.

 

Students have also participated in focus groups to develop our Academy areas of strategic focus and policies such as our Anti-Racism Policy.

Please use the menu buttons on the left column to read more from our students.

We've also included a link on the left to our online learning resources for students.
