Westfield Academy is a secondary school in Yeovil, Somerset, England. The school has 836 students aged between 11 and 16 years. In August 2011, it became an academy. It is situated north of Summerlands Hospital.
The school was created as a comprehensive school in 1975 following the abandonment of Grammar School education in the Yeovil area. The school was an amalgamation of the first to fifth forms of Yeovil High School, Yeovil School and Summerleaze Secondary Modern School. The Sixth Forms were relocated to Yeovil College. Westfield School utilised the buildings of the former Yeovil High School and Westfield Junior School, which were located on opposite sides of a large playing field. The displaced junior school moved to the Summerleaze site, and became Parcroft Junior School. In 2010 the schools combined to form Oaklands Primary School.
In 2010, the school announced plans to build a number of sports field on the old Westfield Infants School, which will be demolished.
In the summer of 2011, the school announced its best ever GCSE exam results, with 79% of the school leavers achieving 5 GCSEs at A*-C. In addition, 56% of the students gained 5 GCSEs at grades A* - C including English and Maths. These results considerably outstripped the other secondary schools in Yeovil. 
In 2012 the School secured just under £60000 of national lottery funding money to be used to update the tennis courts. These courts are now used by the students and outside sporting clubs.
