Year 7

Applications for Year 7 entry to Westminster City School, in September 2021, should have been received by 31 October 2020.

For further information about life within our School, please see our Westminster City School prospectus for Year 7 entry in September 2021.

Our School offers 150 places within the full range of abilities. Of that 60% are Christian (Church of England and other denominations) places, 20% are other world faith places and 20% 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 2021 applicants, this took place on Saturday 14 November 2020 at Westminster City School. Applicants are present for approximately one hour and 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 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.
