What are our student expectations?

WestKing Student Expectations

At WestKing, we want you to make friends, study hard, gain a qualification and progress to higher education and/or employment. You may want to become a future successful entrepreneur or one of the skilled employees many businesses are looking for. We have very high expectations of our students and we do our best to prepare you for the world of work, an apprenticeship or university. During the year, you will also study English and maths, if you haven't passed them yet. You will also develop employability skills and practise them during your work experience.

Attendance & Punctuality Expectations

You are expected to attend classes in line with your course timetable. Students should aim for 100% attendance; this is what your future employer will expect and nothing less. Be on time – put yourself and your fellow students in the best position to learn. When you're late, you disrupt the learning of other students. Be on time, every time.

Behaviour Expectations

Our students are expected to be confident, creative, work-ready, organised and resilient. For clear expectations about behaviour please click here
