Welcome to Westfield Academy

Principal's Welcome

It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to Westfield Academy. We are a non-selective school that converted to Academy status in September 2012. This was on the back of an OFSTED inspection in November 2012, where we were judged “Good” in all areas. This reflected the huge improvements we have made over the last 5 years. During that time the Academy has gone from strength to strength the exams results for the students have consistently improved with 70% of them achieving A*-C in English and 72% in Maths in 2014. This is as a result of high standards, hard work and commitment.

We are all delighted to be part of the Governments Priority Schools Build. This means that starting in 2015 Westfield will be rebuilt. We will have a modern State of the Art school which we and the community can be proud of. In particular I am delighted for the students as this will give them the resources and facilities that they deserve.

I urge you all to visit us, you will find interesting, courteous, engaged students who want to do succeed, alongside teachers prepared to go the extra mile (and more) for all their students.

Best wishes,
Tim Body

We are an inclusive school with a Grammar Stream. This means that we can and ensure that all students meet and exceed their potential.

All students at Westfield are setted on entry by their KS2 primary levels. This is to ensure that in all subjects students are in the most appropriate set for their ability. This allows us to tailor their curriculum to best suit their needs. Whether studying Latin, Further Maths, Horticulture, Hair and Beauty or Construction our aim is to offer each student an opportunity to thrive. This alongside tight pastoral systems, close monitoring of achievement and intervention where required has allowed Westfield Academy to go from strength to strength over the last 5 years. 

At Westfield, we value every young person and have a strong commitment to developing positive attitudes and values in our students; we believe these are the cornerstones of successful learning.

We provide a broad, high quality education. We strive to develop our students spiritually, morally and socially as well as intellectually and physically, so that our students make a valuable contribution to society and every student succeeds.
