What you'll be doing:
Westminster School is a selective day and boarding school for boys aged 13 to 18 and girls aged 16 to 18. There are approximately 760 pupils in all: 360 (boys only) in the Lower School (Years 9 to 11); and a co-educational (one third girls, two thirds boys) Upper School (Years 12 and 13) of 400. One quarter of the pupils board, and the School is structured and run as a boarding school, with an extended day and week and a strong House-based system of pastoral welfare, for boarding and day pupils alike. Westminster is an ancient school, whose origins can be traced to a charity school established by the Benedictine monks of Westminster Abbey. Its continuous existence is certain from the early 14 th century. Henry VIII personally ensured the School's survival by statute and Elizabeth I, who confirmed royal patronage in 1560, is celebrated as the School's foundress. Westminster is rare amongst long-established schools in remaining on its original site in the centre of London. Its proximity to Parliament and Westminster Abbey, and the use of the Abbey for its chapel, together with the stimulating diversity of the South Bank and West End, account in part for its special atmosphere and outlook.
