Our Vision for Excellence.
Westerfield seeks to develop a world-class learning and personal transformation environment.

 

EACH INDIVIDUAL STUDENT ACHIEVES EXCELLENCE BY:

  • Working constantly to raise expectations
  • Developing learning and teaching strategies suited to each student
  • Nurturing, sharing and celebrating the successes of every member of the community
  • Working in close partnership with students, parents and carers

WHAT DOES OUR VISION MEAN FOR WESTERFIELD COLLEGE STUDENTS?

TAKING RESPONSIBILITY AS AN INDEPENDENT LEARNER

Westerfield students understand that they control the success of their studies through the decisions they make. Successful students attend every lesson, participate in class discussions and collaborate with their fellow students in learning activities. They develop their planning skills so they can take responsibility for their private study time, completing work set to deadlines and developing their own independent study.

GAINING THE BEST POSSIBLE EXAMINATION RESULTS

Westerfield students understand that consistent focus over the whole year is needed to gain top examination grades. Teachers assess progress for students to help students reflect on their strengths and weaknesses. Excellent students have the resilience to work hard on their weaknesses and take confidence from their strengths
