At Westlake International School, we are committed to ensuring the success of all our students. Starting in primary all the way through to A Levels, we have designed our curriculum to align with our school’s vision of ‘pursuing excellence’. Our BEST (Boarding, Education, Sports, Talent) framework supports all students as they grow to reach their full potential.
For parents, it is a goal to see their child gain admission into a good university, which sets them up for success in life. Our team of expert educators here at Westlake have put our experience on the table to design a unique, 4-year, High Achievers Programme. Starting in Year 10, students will be on a pathway through the IGCSEs and onto A Levels with the aim of gaining admission to one of the world’s TOP 100 universities. Our programme has delivered success year on year, and we are proud to have alumni at the University of Edinburgh, University of Manchester, University of Melbourne, Nanyang Technology University Singapore and Yale-NUS amongst others. This year, our top A level student has been accepted to study at Imperial College London.
This journey to gain admission into one of the world’s best universities starts in secondary school. The teaching strategies at Westlake combine international best practices and effective use of technological learning tools to ensure that all students remain engaged in their learning. Our focus is to develop the core 21st Century Skills of Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Creativity and Communication, that will ensure that our students are future-ready. Each student is equipped with their own tablet and connected to Google Workspace for Education which allows us to enhance and elevate student learning. Through consistent and rigorous assessments based on international benchmarks, we are able to monitor our students and provide the necessary in-time intervention support. Thus, we are able to ensure that none of our students gets left behind and requires additional external support.
Students need to build the right type of experiences and achievements alongside achieving academic excellence. Our unique AESE (Academic, Extra-curricular, Super-curricular, Enrichment) structure ensures that all students build a well-rounded portfolio that will make them stand out from others. High value-add experiences are embedded into the programme to build skills and knowledge. These come in the form of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, University Immersions, Work Experience and Exchange Programmes. Our international partnerships provide students with the exposure to be competitive by participating in events that connect them with people all over the world.
Boarding is an integral component of our High Achievers Programme, as it allows students to develop the self-confidence, independence and emotional resilience that is vital for success in the world today. Our dedicated Boarding House Parents nurture, guide and support our students as they take their first steps away from home. Boarding House Parents work in collaboration with Teachers to ensure that all aspects of a students wellbeing are taken care of.
The proven track record of Westlake International school in the IGCSE and A Levels has paved the pathway to success for countless students over the last nine years. Join us and become another Westlake success story.
