All applicants will be given a short science, English and maths test. 

    Oversubscription criteria

    If, as is customary, there are more applications than places, the admissions criteria explained in the admissions policy will determine which boys are to be offered places. The same procedures will be applied when there are applicants for casual vacancies that arise in Years 8 to 11.

    Late applicants

    Applications received after the published closing date will not be considered until after the initial allocation of places has taken place. They can then be considered for any surplus places that may be available, or if appropriate placed on the waiting list.

    Contacting the school

    To help us deal with all applicants fairly, and as quickly as possible, we would appreciate your co-operation in contacting the school only if absolutely necessary. All the information required can be found at Westminster councils website:

    "Westminster City School has a welcoming environment both as a school and a community. I settled in and made friends from day one."
