​Year 7 Like Never Before!

Westminster’s Year 7 program is being transformed to combine the best of primary and secondary school in one unique learning experience. From 2018, Westminster is offering an unparalleled range of specialist learning opportunities for Year 7s with the introduction of specialist subject teachers in Mathematics, Science, Coding and Robotics, adding to the already extensive list of specialist teaching in Mandarin, Japanese, Music, Art, IT and PE. Year 7s benefit from their own impressive state-of-the-art learning centre and will be moving to Senior School learning spaces and laboratories for some specialist subjects in preparation for Year 8. Dedicated Year 7 classroom teachers will be working in collaboration with the specialist subject teachers, giving students an outstanding level of support and attention to ensure they are well supported across the school day by someone who really knows them. In Year 7, student wellbeing and leadership opportunities remain a priority and students are encouraged to step up as role models in the Preparatory School while also being included in special events for Senior School students.

Year 7 is the start of Westminster’s Middle Years program that continues through to Year 9 and bridges primary and secondary education. Year 8 offers a curriculum that reflects Westminster’s ‘every opportunity’ ethos and home classes that are based in a suite of new hi-tech learning spaces. As students progress through the Middle Years, they are introduced to a widening range of core and elective subjects as well as increased choices in the co-curricular program, providing every opportunity for exceptional all-round learning and development. All year levels at Westminster are located on one spacious campus, allowing each student’s education to flow smoothly across year levels in a school they know without the disruption and challenges that may be experienced with a separate campus.
