Message from the Principal

Westminster academy is an established happy, vibrant academy where children, staff and parents feel valued and work together as partners. The whole academy community are proud of the Christian values which underpin the inclusive ethos that contributes positively to community cohesion in the academy. These values of hope, peace, friendship, justice and service are central to all we do and contribute to pupil’s social, emotional and moral development.

Children are at the heart of our academy and we have high aspirations for all our pupils whatever their backgrounds or starting points.  We work tirelessly and holistically to improve outcomes for every child and ensure that they are well prepared for their next stage of education. We aim to help nurture children into becoming independent, resilient, reflective, and considerate life-long learners who will have the skills to adapt to an ever changing world. We value the vital partnerships of our families and community in helping achieve this successfully. Indeed, we have a whole team of dedicated professionals with the specific remit of engaging with, and supporting, our parents and families.

Whenever anyone joins Westminster, they are welcomed into our family with respect and love, enjoying the sense of community that this cultivates. We all see ourselves as lifelong learners and we are constantly self-reflecting and developing ourselves in order to achieve excellence. You could call this a ‘growth mind-set’- a fundamental belief that our potential has no limits. With this commitment and belief, we make an awesome team.

Finally, we have a genuine desire to work with others because to be able to share strengths is not only a privilege but a responsibility.
