What Guides Us?
Mission: "Education is Success"
In 2013 Westminster Academy students chose our Mission: "Education is Success".
We strive to fulfill our Mission through the dedication of a talented teaching faculty and support staff; a high-quality, ever-evolving curriculum; individualised academic support and an extensive extra-curricular activities programme.
Our ethos is student-centred and personalises learning for every student in a respectful environment so that all of our students are safe, secure and successful.
WA fosters a proud, cohesive, and ambitious staff body through an engaged and innovative professional learning community, where continuous active learning dialogue results in sustained progress for all students and professional growth for all staff.
Our HERO values were also selected by our students and underpin personal development, behaviour and welfare at Westminster Academy.
Reflecting on the Academy values and British values forms a key part of personal tutoring at Westminster Academy.
