Our Head Boy and Girl  

Welcome to Westfield Academy Sixth Form

Bridging Materials

During these difficult times, we are conscious that Year 11 students must be at a bit of a loss as to what to do. We would strongly suggest that they start to think about next year - Sixth Form. We must expect that September will be mostly back to normal. In preparation for this, we have asked departments to give us materials and resources for Year 11 students to use to prepare for their proposed Sixth form course.

Best wishes - Stay alert and keep safe

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.
