Extra-curricular excellence

17 September 2021

From rowing to steel pans, and from coding to Latin, our students have a wide variety of extra-curricular activities to enjoy as they settle into the new academic year.

As well as existing sports clubs, such as football and rugby, our School is offering new opportunities this year, with rowing now taking place before-school. Our PE Department’s extensive extra-curricular sports offering helps our young people keep fit and makes use of facilities at Palace Street, such as our gym, playground, sports hall and fitness suite, as well as nearby Green Park, where our rugby players train.

Within our Music Department, alongside lunchtime and after-school opportunities for our talented and numerous music ensembles and our popular Choir, there are now over 150 students from across our School learning a musical instrument. Individual instrument lessons are available in brass, strings and woodwind, as well as piano, guitar and drums, and take place during the school day.

In addition to sport and music opportunities, our students can also undertake chess, learn Latin or take part in our popular Coding Club, where participants compete in national competitions, with a great deal of success over the last few years. Westminster City School students can also make use of our library after-school each day, when it provides a quiet place for homework and further study.

Headteacher, Mr Broughton, said: “Running before- and after-school, as well as over lunchtime, our School’s extra-curricular activities in music, sport and more enable our young people to have fun, build their skills and experiences, and make new friends. I’m delighted to see such a wide array of opportunities available for the 2021-22 academic year.”
