We are a comprehensive school for boys with a mixed sixth form in central London close to Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. We are proud of our diverse school community which is multi-faith, multi-cultural and a true reflection of the modern city we live in. Our boys come from all over London and the surrounding areas with some boys travelling into school from Guildford, Watford, Slough, Wembley, Essex and Kent.
Ours is a school with a Christian foundation and character but we welcome boys of all faiths and of no faith. Our strong moral and spiritual ethos ensures pupils develop and prosper during their time at our school.
With only 140 boys admitted into each year group, Westminster City School is relatively small. This enables us to get to know our pupils as individuals quickly, teach in small groups and ensure every pupil enjoys coming to school and challenging themselves to be the best they can.
The school's hardworking and committed staff deliver the curriculum in a way that ensures all our pupils are able to learn and achieve to the best of their ability. Our GCSE results are well above the national average with pupils achieving results that are in the top third nationally. Class sizes are often under 20 enabling those who need extra support in English and mathematics to receive it, sometimes on a one-to-one basis. Those who are able to take their exams early do so, giving them the best chance of obtaining the grades required for entry into top universities. Every decision we make at our Westminster School is focused on helping our pupils reach their maximum potential.
The school's Christian ethos and its promotion of cultural diversity permeate all aspects of the school community. Student behaviour is good in and out of lessons and they feel safe...
We pride ourselves on offering a rich, rewarding school life for our pupils and sixth form students – read more here…
