Fencing is a long-standing major Station at Westminster. It takes place in the main hall of the Sports Centre. With the help of two expert and high-level external coaches, pupils have the opportunity to learn all three weapons, the Épée, Foil and Sabre, thereby developing their coordination, skill, speed and general fitness. 45 to 50 pupils participate in fencing Station.

During the Play and Lent Terms, pupils participate in matches against top fencing schools. The competitive season culminates in the Public Schools’ Championships, in which the School has a distinguished record of individual triumphs and team victories, including winning Gold in the Mount-Haes Épée in 2019 and in the Senior Épée in 2017.

Fencing Station continues into the Election Term, focusing upon individual development. During the year, the Station is complemented by the fencing LSA for particularly keen and gifted fencers.

Westminster’s successful history of fencing is borne out by the fact that Great Britain’s only representative at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics was Old Westminster, Marcus Mepstead.
