Westminster Christian School was established in 1981 to provide education for children of Christian families, using a Christ-centred curriculum founded on a Biblical World View. It is an inter-denominational, state-integrated, co-educational, full primary school for students from New Entrant to Year 8. The school has a roll of 310 students as of March 2019.[4][5]

The school is set on a sunny, 2½ hectare site in Albany, on Auckland’s North Shore. The clean environment and well-established trees provide a peaceful backdrop to modern buildings, classrooms and playgrounds.
