2017 A Level Results
Congratulations to all Westminster City School Sixth Form students on a fantastic set of A Level results.
Our 2017 results are extremely pleasing with 29% of all grades awarded at A*-A and 65% of grades at A*-B. The increase in high grades is particularly encouraging considering the national fall in high grades awarded in recent years.
I am delighted with these outstanding A Level results. To have two of our students accepted at Oxford and many others at Russell Group universities shows just how hard they have worked.

Ms S Solani, Acting Headmistress said:
“We are proud to be a comprehensive school yet we continue to achieve hugely above national averages and reverse the trend of declining boys' attainment.”
Overall the results across the board were strong but the results in English and Maths with the new 1-9 qualifications have dipped a bit. Nationally the picture is a decrease in results from last year but it’s too early to tell if that correlates with our experience.
Acting Headmistress Ms S Solani says:
“ In summary it’s pleasing to see most subjects doing well and disappointing to see Mathematics and English go down but the fact they’ve gone done by similar amounts does perhaps indicate that this is a symptom of the new ‘tougher’ GCSEs.”
