Westside School or simply Westside is a girls' comprehensive school in the British territory of Gibraltar.

The school opened in 1982, and was built in order to make available a better education to the students of the former Girls' Comprehensive School which had been then spread over three different sites. It was originally an amalgamation of four girls' schools: Loreto High School, St. Joseph's Secondary School, St. Margaret's School, and St. David's Commercial School.[1]

Subjects offered[edit]

Westside offers a range of subjects at different levels. These are at Key Stage 3 (years 8 and 9), Key Stage 4 (years 10 and 11) and Sixth form (years 12 and 13).[2] Students do their General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) courses during Key Stage 4 and those who wish to further their studies from there, do their A-Levels during sixth form. Italicized subjects indicate compulsory subjects.
