Westminster pupils apply successfully to top universities, nationally and internationally. 70-80 pupils each year have been offered places at Oxford and Cambridge in the last five years.

American universities are also proving increasingly popular, with as many as forty pupils applying successfully each year, some also gaining offers at Oxford or Cambridge. Pupils have also accepted places at universities offering leading courses in their chosen fields: for example, the London School of Economics, Imperial College, the Courtauld Institute, the Sorbonne, the Royal College of Music and the New York Film School.

A number of pupils each year elect to apply post A-Level and are statistically equally successful in gaining places at their chosen universities. The School provides an excellent programme of mentoring and University Preparation Classes to which current pupils and those who have recently left are welcome.
