Westminster School

Westminster School: This is a boys school for 758 students aged 13 to 18. There are girls in the sixth form only. There is also a Junior School known as Westminster Under School for boys aged 7 to 13. For 7+/8+ entry there are written papers in Maths, English, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning. There are also classroom activities and an interview. A reference is requested. 11+ entry to the Under School involves the ISEB Common Pre-Test in November which is an online test covering Maths, English, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning. Some boys may be selected for the next stage which is written papers in Maths and English. If successful boys may then be called for interview. If boys are successful at entry at 11+ there are no further tests for entry at 13+ to the Great School. For 13+ entry, be aware that the process starts in Year 6 (age 10-11). The candidate will need to take the ISEB Common pre-tests (computer- based tests in English, Mathematics and Reasoning). Westminster School then requests a reference from the candidate's current school. Those reaching the required standard with the pre-tests and who have an acceptable school report will be invited for interview in the Spring term of Year 6. During the day, there will be short tests in Maths and English. Successful boys will be offered a place on condition that they average 70% at 13+ Common Entrance (taken in June of Year 8) or in the 13+ Westminster Scholarship, known as 'The Challenge' (taken in May of Year 8). For both exams, boys must sit: Maths, English, French, Science, Latin, History, Geography and, for CE only, RS. 16+ entry involves entrance exams and interviews. A conditional offer may be made subject to specific GCSE grades. Scholarships are available at 13+ and 16+ (girls only). All scholars must board and are awarded 50% off the boarding fee. Bursaries are available but not for overseas applicants. Overseas students may board if they are over 16 if their parents live outside the UK. The school can support visa applications.
