Half-term help

6 November 2020

A number of Westminster City School pupils received a boost to their GCSE preparations during half-term, as they took part in interactive lessons designed to support their academic studies.

For three days over the holiday, our pupils joined booster sessions covering key concepts in mathematics, English, biology, chemistry and physics at Emanuel School. Alongside the classroom-based activities in mathematics and English, our pupils also undertook practical work within Emanuel’s science laboratories. These enabled pupils to further develop their understanding and gain additional hands-on experience of working in a laboratory environment.

More than 30 pupils took part in the fun and challenging booster sessions, taught by nine Emanuel teachers with support from Westminster City School staff. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive, with all Westminster City School pupils finding the programme helpful. In addition to the materials covered in class, our pupils were also provided with a pack of questions and model answers that matched the requirements of their different exam boards.

Jen Lockyer, Deputy Headteacher at Westminster City School, said: “This initiative is another great example of collaboration between our School and Emanuel, both part of the United Westminster and Grey Coat Foundation. I would like to thank the teaching staff at Emanuel for their hard work in developing such fantastic booster sessions for our pupils during half-term.”

The United Westminster and Grey Coat Foundation is an educational charity first founded in the 1870s. There are now five high-performing schools under the Foundation, which aims to promote educational excellence and improvement.
