Year 7 pupil reading Narnia

Year 7

Applications for Year 7 entry to Westminster City School, in September 2022, should have been received by 31 October 2021.

For further information about joining and life at our School, please see our Westminster City School prospectus for Year 7 entry. For an update on news and events in the last year, please see our Year 7 entry news flyer.

Our School offers 130 places within the full range of abilities. Of that 60% are Christian (20% Church of England and 40% other denominations) places, 15% are other world faith places and 25% are open places (governors will allocate places to boys of no faith who are willing to support the clear religious, social and ethical ethos of our School).

When applying for secondary schools, please do not forget to complete and name Westminster City School on your online local authority application form and to complete and submit our School's supplementary form.

Assessment day

All applicants must attend our assessment day. For September 2022 applicants, this took place on Saturday 13 November 2021 at Westminster City School. Applicants are present for approximately one hour and given a short English and maths test. 

Oversubscription criteria

If, as is customary, there are more applications than places, the admissions criteria explained in our admissions policy will determine which boys are offered places. The same procedures will be applied 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 our waiting list.

Applications at other times

If you are interested in a place at our School, other than the usual September joining date, you may wish to visit our School. Please contact our Admissions Officer on telephone: 020 7963 6300 or email to arrange this.
