Neuroscientific knowledge

9 June 2020

Sharon has an offer to read BSc Neuroscience and Psychology (with a Year Abroad) at King’s College London. She is currently studying A Levels in Biology, English and Psychology within our Sixth Form.

“Neuroscience and Psychology is the perfect university degree for me, since it combines my love of science and my love of social science. In fact, when I talked about university options with my teachers at Westminster City School, including my psychology teacher, Ms James, we all agreed that this was a great decision for me. It allows me to learn more about two subject areas that I already thoroughly enjoy.

“I joined Westminster City School in Year 12, after an older friend recommended the Sixth Form to me. Starting any new school is daunting but I quickly settled in and have made some good new friends. Since the Sixth Form is not particularly near my home, it has also given me a good experience of independence, since I manage my time and finances to commute in every day.

“Now I am excited at the thought of studying at university. My parents have been very supportive and I know that it will be a great experience for me.”

A Russell Group university, King’s is consistently ranked amongst the top institutions in the world by all major global university rankings compilers. To name just some of the notable alumni and staff would include 12 Nobel laureates, heads of states, almost 20 members of the current House of Commons and over 15 members of the current House of Lords, and the recipients of three Oscars, three Grammys and an Emmy.

Over 90% of our current Year 13 have applied to start university in September 2020, receiving offers across a range of courses and institutions, both in and out of London. We are exceptionally proud of our young people and, over the coming weeks, will feature many of our sixth formers talking about their exciting journey towards university.
