Academic Learning

At Westminster, we offer a comprehensive academic curriculum, including over 40 subject choices in Year 12. The breadth and quality of our learning program provides many opportunities for students to try new things, discover their genuine interests and ultimately encourage them to achieve more than they thought would be possible.
We want our students to enjoy coming to Westminster every day and to graduate with exceptional skills in communication, collaboration, critical thinking and problem-solving

Co-curricular and Wellbeing

At Westminster, students are encouraged to select activities that complement their academic program and that provide a more rounded and balanced range of experiences. These activities not only provide opportunities for individuals to work as part of a team, but also allows students to experience a challenge and a sense of their own personal worth beyond the classroom.

Many of the activities on offer can be undertaken as either a curricular or co-curricular option, and all students are expected to involve themselves in the co-curricular program as part of their development. In doing so, it helps students develop qualities such as confidence, leadership, resilience, and social skills.
