Message from the Principal

Dear Reader, We are glad to welcome you to Westminster International School in Tashkent (WIST)!

Our students enjoy coming to school each day because they know they will be cared for and supported in their learning. Each student is recognised and ‘known’ by their fully qualified and expert teachers, allowing them to develop the confidence required to embrace the challenges that will be skillfully and carefully placed before them.

We are proud of our students because they value and always look to promote and practise kindness. We are proud of our students because they strive for excellence and recognise that this can be exhibited in many different forms.

Wellbeing is at the centre of everything we do and this is cultivated and grown through helping each child develop positive and mutually respectful relationships, both with their peers and their teachers.

Our academic results speak for themselves and are the product of an emphasis on continual self-improvement. Students are encouraged to explore, follow their curiosity and be creative in their thinking. Our teachers are experts in being responsive to each child’s needs, providing very individual feedback to enable them to embrace the next step in their learning.

Students are provided with extensive opportunities to flourish and find their ‘element’ through a broad, rich academic and co-curricular programme, with a focus on leadership and community.

Please enjoy finding out more about our school, through the different sections of the website. Don’t take our word for it though. Come and see and feel what makes WIST an exceptional school by meeting the exceptional people on our beautiful campus.
