Head Master's Welcome
The Story of Westminster
Life as a Queen's Scholar
There are a total of 48 Queen’s Scholars, with 12 chosen every year: eight boys at age 13 and four girls at age 16. The Scholars are chosen based on their performance in the entrance exams and interviews and the scholarship lasts for the duration of their time at the school.
The Westminster ethos encourages pupils not only to make the most of their talents and take intellectual risks, but also to pursue a healthy, rounded lifestyle.
Drama at Westminster
Aspiring thespians can find inspiration in the knowledge that the likes of Sir Arthur John Gielgud, John Dryden, Stephen Poliakoff and Helena Bonham-Carter are among past pupils to tread the boards at Westminster.
Sport at Westminster
We are extremely fortunate, in the centre of London, to have a great deal of outdoor space for sport: pupils have a shooting gallery and several fives courts in addition to our playing fields at Vincent Square.
Lower School Boarding
The boarding houses are all equipped with dedicated study areas and there is filtered internet access in every pupil’s room, to which they are free to connect any device.
Upper School Boarding
Westminster has a long history as a boarding school and today we have a lively boarding community of approximately 190 boys and girls.
