No school can afford to stand still in a world where education continues to rapidly evolve.

Westminster is no exception and in our relatively short history, we have achieved many amazing milestones as the School has advanced. The Murray Centre for Performing Arts, the Sports and Swimming Centre, the Sturt Grove Farm, Westventure, the Boarding Precinct and the Mathwin Centre are all fine examples of investments that support our mission to provide an exceptional education for all students at Westminster.

Westminster will continue to be dynamic and evolve to the needs of our students. There will be more milestones recorded when Westminster School celebrates 60 years of outstanding education in 2021.

With this occasion firmly in our sights, the School Council commissioned a master planning process of the School, incorporating a vision to consolidate our School as a learning environment at the forefront of world-best educational practice.

This new Campus Masterplan aligns with Westminster’s new strategic vision announced in 2018 to see us through to our diamond anniversary and beyond, and includes some of the most exciting and progressive advancements ever undertaken by the School. Within our masterplan, we will create a truly contemporary and creative learning environment for all students, Preschool to Year 12, whilst celebrating the natural attributes of the existing grounds.

Council and School Leadership have been working collaboratively with key academic and co-curricular staff, as well as leading educational consultants and architects. Through these extensive collaborations, our priorities have centred around new state-of-the-art facilities for Science, IT, Design, Technology, and Engineering, complemented by Mathematics, Arts, Humanities and attractive community spaces.

In February 1961 at the inaugural assembly, Westminster’s first Headmaster Douglas Forder famously declared - “Let the life of the School begin”.

We are always building on the great vision of our Founders and those who have served and supported Westminster. Through sound and diligent investment, the life of the School has flourished and will continue to do so.

We proudly present an overview of our Campus Masterplan that will drive the change, particularly for the next three years. What lies ahead is bold and ambitious, yet essential for the growth of the School and our students as they look to their futures in further education, employment and the community.
