Teaching & Learning


Westfield Academy believes every student joining the Academy has the ability to be successful in secondary education. We aim to empower students with the ability to study and learn independently, to develop their social skills and to enjoy new experiences. Westfield Academy aims to instil in all our students a love of learning, to develop the skills, knowledge, resilience and qualifications to enable them to communicate to society through their abilities, conduct and self-reliance.

The Westfield student’s learning journey is encapsulated in the Academy’s motto: Believe | Strive | Achieve.

The Westfield Way

At Westfield Academy, we have dedicated, passionate, subject-specialist teachers who are reflective and dynamic in their daily practice. All teachers follow The Westfield Way in the planning and delivery of their lessons, to ensure every child, regardless of ability, makes progress and has a love of learning in their subjects.
