Academic Overview

At Westminster, we aspire to provide every student with an exceptional all-round education. We are a leader in education and offer an extensive range of subjects (currently around 40 in Year 12).

The Melbourne Declaration, made by all Australian Education Ministers in 2008, set two goals to be met; the first that Australian schooling promotes equity and excellence; the second that all young Australians become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, active and informed citizens. Everything we do here at Westminster aligns with these basic principles.

Our curriculum gives students every opportunity to achieve their own excellence.

We continually revitalise our curriculum across all year levels to ensure it is current and relevant, addresses the capabilities required by ACARA (Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority) and meets the requirements of the SA Certificate of Education (SACE). As students progress through school, they need greater choice to create their own adventures.

Additionally, we need to account for students who perform at different levels by continuing to support and challenge them with tailored learning plans. Academically gifted children deserve to have their needs met as must those who need academic support. Education content and delivery is constantly evolving to ensure that we achieve the best learning outcomes for our students.
