e) enable young people and their parents to participate in decision-making
f) collaborate with partners in education, health and social care where appropriate
g) ensure that appropriate resources are available for pupils with temporary or long-term special needs
h) provide support for teachers to meet the learning needs of all pupils”
“I feel an enormous sense of privilege in having the opportunity to lead such an outstanding academic institution. Westminster is a hugely exciting place to be. It is a school where pupils are taught to think by teachers who inspire them.”
Westminster has two types of scholarship, designed to honour and highlight particular talent in the academic and musical arenas.
Over time this philanthropic ethos has evolved into a programme of bursary support that provides approximately £1.4m each year to pupils at both the Under School and Great School. This allows pupils of exceptional talent and promise to benefit from a high-quality education regardless of their background or financial position.
