Welcome to the Westhill Academy website – we hope you find the information here useful.

Supporting Learning at Home – Further Resources
Teachers are sharing work, activities, resources and learning through Microsoft Teams.
In addition, we have collated a list of websites which are used or recommended by teachers to enhance learning and complement classroom activities. Some of these websites are ordinarily licensed, but these restrictions have been lifted by the companies responsible in light of COVID-19 and pupils, parents/carers and partners can sign up for free.
The list can be accessed on the school website by following this link: http://westhillacademy.aberdeenshire.sch.uk/supporting-learning-at-home/
The BGE Literacy and Numeracy booklets previously produced with the Parent Council are also available via this link, as well as a parental guide to GLOW, Teams and other online platforms pupils typically use in school.
We hope you and your child(ren) find this useful.
