The School buses pick up and drop off in clearly marked bus zones in front of the School grounds with teachers supervising and helping to ensure all students, particularly the young ones, find their way. Students as young as five years of age catch the School buses. There are also other public routes that utilise Marion Rd and drop students close to the School grounds, meaning that Westminster is easily accessible by public transport from all south western suburbs of Adelaide.

The Marion train station is adjacent to the School grounds and many students catch the train to School and home again each day.

Suburbs near the train line south of Marion such as Hallett Cove, Seacliff, Brighton, Hove, Warradale and Oaklands Park and those suburbs north of Marion such as Ascot Park, Edwardstown, Black Forest, Clarence Park and Goodwood are all easily accessible by train from Westminster. The City of Adelaide is also easily accessible by train.

Having such spacious grounds and in excess of 400 car parks is ideal for being able to park near classrooms should you need to speak briefly to teachers before or after school. It also makes drop-offs and pick-ups simple and safe.
