The boys have worked hard to overcome these challenges and thoroughly deserve their success. We have achieved particular success in areas beyond our usual areas of strength in the sciences, English and mathematics with results in Art, Music and Modern Foreign Languages being very strong.”
Jen Lockyer, Deputy Headteacher, added: “It is excellent to see so many wonderful achievements throughout the range of subjects studied here at Westminster City School. Our pupils should be proud of the commitment that they have shown to their learning in a time of tremendous challenge and increased academic rigour. We wish all of our pupils every success in their future endeavours and look forward to welcoming many of them into our Sixth Form which is in the top 10% of schools for progress.”
