There is a wealth of opportunities in the Sixth Form to enable girls to broaden their horizons. All students are actively encouraged to take part in the programme of extra curricular activities.

The UNESCO Group

Westfield has a thriving UNESCO Group who meet on a weekly basis to organise letter campaigns, assemblies and fund raising activities to support their work on Human Rights.

Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme

This is a voluntary, non-competitive programme of practical, cultural and adventurous activities, designed to support the personal and social development of young people aged 14 - 25, regardless of gender, background or ability.  It offers an individual challenge and encourages young people to undertake exciting, constructive, challenging and enjoyable activities in their free time.  

International Exchanges

Westfield is involved in regular exchanges with other European, American, African and Australian schools, particularly those involved in Round Square. A level French students are offered the opportunity to do a week’s work experience in a business in France and to stay with a French family.

Music in the Sixth Form

Members of the Sixth Form have the opportunity to participate in various activities within the Music Department including Choir, Orchestra, Wind Band, String Orchestra as well as performing at a variety of musical events throughout the year. Instrumental lessons are available to all Sixth Form girls.

Physical Education

Physical Education plays an important part in school life.  There is a wide choice of sports on offer at Westfield - Badminton, Squash, Aerobics, Running Club, Athletics as well as the various 'team' sports that are available to the Sixth Form.

Round Square and International Opportunities

Every year a number of Sixth Form students are selected to attend the Annual Round Square Conference which in recent years has been held in Canada, Scotland, Germany, Australia, India, Kenya and the USA. Girls are invited to apply for Round Square Projects at many locations around the world.  Projects vary from building a library or school building, working in an orphanage, carrying out conservation projects to laying water pipes in remote villages in Thailand.
