Outside the classroom

We offer a vast array of opportunities for pupils and students, both in and out of lessons. Our comprehensive programme of extra-curricular activities take place during lunch, as well as before- and after-school.

Westminster City School pupils like to keep active, and our School has a strong sporting tradition with activities run across different sports at all levels. We also have a flourishing Army Cadet Unit through which a number of pupils and students take part in camps and outdoor activities. In addition, many of our young people are currently undertaking the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.

Performing arts is another area in which Westminster City School is extremely successful, with activities offered music, art and drama. Performance opportunities include concerts throughout the year that feature our School Choir and numerous musical ensembles, like our School Orchestra, School Wind Band and School Jazz Band. Many of our young people also perform in productions within our School and take part in external projects with outside organisations.

 


School clubs

We are justly proud of the wide range of school clubs that are available to our pupils and students. Our Sports Hall opens early for basketball practice each day and our well-equipped library provides the ideal after-school venue for Homework Club. We also offer numerous other lunchtime and after-school activities to help our young people try something new and develop their talents, skills and abilities to the full.

School trips

Our full programme of educational trips and visits ensures that our young people enhance and further develop their knowledge and understanding of our curriculum.

Our unique central London location means that trips can range from "local" visits to the many museums, galleries, theatres and parks to be found in London, as well as to places further afield that are also of historical, geographical, literary, religious or scientific interest.

Alongside a number of excursions at home and abroad, our School has also run a Japanese exchange programme for over 20 years. This provides a life-changing opportunity to our pupils, as they experience firsthand a completely different culture, staying with their host family in Tokyo.

Whether the trip is a morning visit to the Tate Modern or a week spent in New York, whether it involves an army assault course or creating a virtual newspaper at The Guardian newsrooms, our pupils and students get enjoyment and enrichment from these activities.

Westminster City School is rigorous in maintaining its inclusive ethos and no pupil is denied participation on trips because of financial hardship.
