Thank you Colin

20 January 2020

An ensemble room, in our prestigious Pouchot building, has been named in honour of former member of staff and long-serving Governor, Mr Colin Nash.

The Colin Nash Ensemble Room acknowledges the hard work, support and guidance that Mr Nash has offered our School for over 25 years. He first joined Westminster City School in 1993, working as our Head of Drama and a teacher of English and Religious Education for five years. Then, from 1998 until the present day, Mr Nash has been an active Governor for our School.

Last night’s event, which included a stunning musical performance by current pupils, was also attended by a number of Old Boys who had been taught by Mr Nash. Writing on Twitter, Labour MP for Ilford North, Wes Streeting, said: “They say ‘you never forget a good teacher’. It’s true.

“I was so proud to attend the opening of the room dedicated to Colin Nash at Westminster City School. The quality of the performance was spectacular. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, it doesn’t matter what adversity you face, when people believe in you, you can achieve anything.”

Headteacher, Mr Broughton, added: “During Colin’s time as Governor, our School has grown and thrived. Our multicultural pupil body means we have links to more than 100 different countries, with 14 out of 17 possible ethnic groups represented, while our summer 2019 GCSE results were above national averages, and significantly above national averages for state-funded boys’ schools.

“Colin has been a huge supporter of our School, so naming this ensemble room in his honour is just a small way of showing our appreciation. Thanks to the guidance of our Governors, the hard work of our exceptional staff, and the tremendous support of our community of parents/carers, our School continues to provide a transformative experience to pupils.”
