Headmaster's Welcome

    Welcome to our website which I hope gives you an informative and stimulating picture of the school. Westminster City School is a Christian school for pupils of all abilities and aspiring to standards of excellence at all levels. Our ethos of faith underpins everything that we do as an academic centre and as a community.

    Our pupils are polite and respectful; our lessons are engaging and challenging. The school prides itself on being traditional in all the best ways whilst being innovative at the same time. This is borne out by the overwhelmingly positive comments that are made by visitors to the school.

    We have six year groups of 140 boys per year and a mixed sixth form of 140 students. Part of our mission statement is to exhort pupils to achieve their full potential in all their endeavours. We expect all our pupils and students to try their hardest at everything they do and strive for excellence.

    Pupils have talents across the curriculum. At Westminster City School we identify a pupil’s individual talents and strengths and encourage them to achieve to the best of their ability whether this is in the arts or sciences, mathematics or sport, languages or music. Once pupils and students leave Westminster City School we are proud that they have developed into well-rounded individuals ready to face the challenges of an ever-changing and increasingly competitive world.

    We offer a broad curriculum, encourage independent learning and have a rich extra-curricular programme. Last year the school’s GCSE results were in the top 15% nationally and we achieved some amazing results in 2016 with 71% of pupils obtaining 5+ A*-C including English and mathematics. Compared to a national average for boys of just 51% we believe these results are truly outstanding. We are proud of being a good school but are determined to drive up standards to become a great school in the near future.

    The governors and staff of Westminster City School understand that education is a partnership involving parents in the life and work of our school. This partnership is important because education extends beyond the school and into the family lives of our pupils. It also helps to ensure that our expectations of high standards of work, behaviour and appearance are realised. Together we provide the framework that enables our boys and girls to excel.
