Secondary School Transfer

Westfield Academy is 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. In February 2016 we were once again judged as "Good" by OFSTED. We are a friendly calm school which strives to achieve the best possible outcomes for all students regardless of background.

Our results go from strength to strength with most positive progress 8 results of all the local non-selective schools. 

In December 2016 we were lucky to move into fabulous new premises, these have given the students the quality resources we always knew they deserved.

Please feel free to come and visit us. Just contact Mrs Newlyn at the school and arrange to walk around, we are sure you'll love it.

Entrance Requirements

Unlike some other schools in the area, the school does not set any prerequisites for entrance; selection is carried out according to Hertfordshire LEA guidelines. 

Due to a significant increase in performance over the last few years, it is expected that applications this year will exceed the number of places available and that parents who do not select Westfield Academy as one of their options may well not be offered a place at the school.
