It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Westminster City School. We are a comprehensive school for boys, with a mixed sixth form, in central London, close to Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. Our founders adopted the motto Unitate Fortior – Strength in Unity. It is a sentiment that is as important to our School today as it was when it first opened in 1877.
Since becoming our school's fifteenth headteacher, I have realised why increasing numbers of young people are going that extra mile to be educated at Westminster City School. There is something very special that permeates our School – I call it the ‘Westminster City Factor’. For me, this factor comprises of a unity of so many strengths. Ours is a school unified by its culture, purpose, character, connections and sense of community.
We draw much from our rich history to ensure that everyone within our School’s multi-faith, multi-cultural and forward-thinking community is equipped with the skills and attributes to succeed in the twenty-first century. We are proud of this diversity which ensures our School is a true reflection of the modern city we live in.
Life at Westminster City School is demanding and rewarding, and enriches all within our proud community. Our School offers exceptional learning opportunities within an inclusive community. Our dynamic Christian foundation and rich heritage help equip each person with the life-skills needed to flourish. I hope your visit to our website gives you a firm sense of our aspiration for all that pass through our doors.
