Our Head Boy and Girl  

Welcome to Westfield Academy Sixth Form,

Westfield Academy Sixth Form aims to deliver all-inclusive educational pathways for all students irrespective of their ability. We provide a strong pastoral team who will support and meet the requirements of the student throughout their time in Sixth Form. We offer a friendly environment where students feel safe and are able to exceed their potential.

Westfield’s ethos is to deliver an outstanding educational programme. We give provision to a comprehensive education, which in turn opens up a vast plethora of opportunity once students have completed their courses. Our aim is to optimize all students’ skillset, knowledge and experiences so they are prepared for the next stage of their life, whether they have opted for higher education at university/college, apprenticeship, gap year or employment.

Westfield also has dedicated facilities for sixth form use: a common room with food available all day, a computer suite and areas for independent study.
