AcademicA wide range of subjects is taught by specialists.
At Westfield we aim to ensure that each girl achieves the highest degree of academic success of which she is capable. For the majority of girls this will mean 9 or 10 passes in the A* - C range of the GCSE. Many girls achieve straight As and A*s. This achievement continues in the Sixth Form where girls gain places at Oxford and Cambridge and other first class universities.
At Westfield, we encourage pupils to study STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) as we belive there will be a huge growth in STEM careers over the next few years, with over 50% of new jobs expected to be in STEM related disciplines. We encourage our pupils to have the confidence to move away from stereotypes and to become a new generation of women in STEM.
Girls who would probably achieve less in larger and more impersonal schools also do very well at Westfield where skilled teaching is allied to an extremely favourable pupil teacher ratio, with class size normally between 10 and 20 pupils and smaller groups for AS and A level.
