Our inspirational alumni continue to make a difference across the globe.
With such a long history of educating young people in London, it comes as no surprise that former Westminster City School pupils have gone on to enjoy success in their careers.
We love hearing what our alumni have been doing since leaving Westminster City School. Each month, we are inviting a member of our alumni community to share their story of life since Palace Street.
