Welcome to Westfield

Westfield Academy is a very successful school judged as “Good” at our last OfSTED inspection in 2014. We are proud of our school and consider ourselves to be at the heart of the community of the town of Yeovil and surrounding villages.  We are a friendly and welcoming school occupying a green and attractive site where parents know that their children will be well looked after and encouraged to be the best they can be.

Our Values and Ethos

Our motto is “Seeing the qualities in every child”, with our aim being to ensure all of our students become successful lifelong learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. Our teachers and support staff are highly skilled and fully committed to challenging and supporting the children in their care. Children tell us that they enjoy school, are happy and feel safe. Regular rewards assemblies and annual awards evenings are where we recognise and celebrate the very wide range of achievements of our students. Children are also encouraged to take on roles of responsibility, including prefect, house and form captain and to help further improve their own school through our school council. All students are members of a tutor group and one of our four houses, (Darwin, Einstein, Franklin and Galileo). Heads of House ensure children are well supported and cared for, with houses also forming the basis of inter-house sporting activities and fundraising events. Children are encouraged to understand, respect and celebrate diversity, not least through our annual diversity week programme.

Visits from prospective students and their families are encouraged at any time of the year and can be arranged by contacting us on 01935 423747.

Former Students




Students are encouraged to make the most of a very wide range of extracurricular opportunities, including The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. We run fixtures in all major sports and have a wide range of clubs and leisure sports activities. Students benefit from working with specialist coaches and enjoy good access to community clubs on and beyond the school site. Elite performers benefit from a wide range of of opportunities including sports psychology, training and nutrition.

Performing arts are a real strength of Westfield. Many students take advantage of our wide range of specialist music tuition together with our choir, orchestra, string group and contemporary music groups. Students have the opportunity to perform in 3 concerts each year. Drama and dance opportunities include an annual school play and 2 dance shows a year, all hosted in our theatre.

Learning beyond the school site includes theatre visits, geography fieldtrips, our annual ski trip and visits to Spain, France, India and China.
