Welcome to the Westfields Sports High School Website. Our school offers a dynamic, creative and supportive learning environment in which all
students are encouraged, by a committed staff, to pursue personal excellence in academic pursuits, citizenship, sport and the arts. Our extended
educational community provides a caring and supportive environment, recognising and rewarding individual and cooperative achievement.
Westfields High was the first sports high school in Australia and continues to lead the way with innovative and highly developed sports programs.
We are recognised around Australia and throughout the world and have produced a large number of Australian sports representatives across a
variety of sports. In 2011 we had four ex-students playing for the Socceroos in the FIFA World Cup qualifying matches. In addition,
Michael Clarke and Usman Khawaja played test cricket for Australia, 28 ex-students played in Football Australiaís A League and 27 former
students played for various clubs in the National Rugby League Competition. At the school level, we had 17 students selected to represent
Australia and 72 chosen to represent NSW in a wide variety of sports.
Westfields Sports also has a proud record of academic achievement. Our 2011 HSC results were exceptional. Our Dux achieved an ATAR of 95.6 and
we had 34 Band 6 results. In total, over 90 students have been accepted into universities for 2012. We also have extremely successful
acceleration programs in Mathematics, Science and English for our talented academic students who sit their School Certificate in Year 9 and
their Higher School Certificate in either Years 10 or 11. In terms of adding value to studentís performance from the School Certificate to the
Higher School Certificate, Westfields Sports was placed in the top 15% of all schools from across the state.
The school boasts excellent facilities and resources, a broad and flexible curriculum and timetable structure, numerous extra curricula programs
including overseas tours, and a strong and supportive welfare system. Nearly all of the classrooms have either interactive white boards or fixed
data projectors and we have recently commenced an air conditioning program. We hope to have all of the first storey classrooms fully air
conditioned over the next few years. During 2011 we opened our new change rooms and recovery centre. In 2012, work will commence on a new full
commercial, stainless steel kitchen.
Westfields Sports High is a very special school community. It has an active and supportive P&C, strong community support and input into the
sports program, committed, highly experienced and talented staff and superb student leaders. I am very proud to be part of the Westfields
Sports Family and trust that your tour of our website will be interesting and informative. he said. "Westfields is a school we're all proud of
because it nurtures sporting talent while encouraging academic success."
