Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Westminster School, Adelaide.

Meet Westminster's new Principal, Simon Shepherd.

At Westminster, we stand for excellence in everything we do.

Since our doors opened in 1961, we have built a proud tradition of academic, sporting, artistic and creative achievement supported by a strong and globally active School community. 

Being a leading coeducational school, we take great pride in offering a warm, nurturing and natural environment to provide our students with an exceptional all-round education and a lifelong love of learning. Every opportunity is available for girls and boys, allowing them to discover the pathways that best meet their interests.

We believe that the wellbeing of our students complements their academic success. Our focus is on developing the individual skills and attributes of our students, to help them thrive in an increasingly complex world. Westminster offers a diverse academic curriculum that works hand in hand with extensive pastoral and co-curricular programs.

Westminster is blessed with wide open spaces, beautiful grounds, state-of-the-art infrastructure and modern facilities. We continually work to enhance our learning environment and technology to meet the ever-changing needs of education.

Our teachers are highly qualified and well-respected members of the community, encouraged to undertake professional learning and stay at the forefront of their profession.  Many have contributed significantly to the national development of their respective curriculums, including those who have authored internationally published text books and references. Our teaching staff work with dedication and a true commitment to the growth of each and every student.

We incorporate the values and philosophies of the Uniting Church and Round Square, including democracy, environment, leadership, adventure, service and an international focus, into everyday school life.

We are very proud of our School and the excellence we expect and achieve, without compromising the friendly and inclusive environment we have created.

Please accept my invitation to join me, our Enrolments Manager and Heads of Schools on one of our personal campus tours, enabling you to experience the warmth and vibrancy of our School.

I look forward to welcoming you and your family to Westminster School.
