The Governing Body of Westminster School seeks a new Head to succeed Patrick Derham OBE, after six years of exceptional service.
Granted royal patronage in 1560, Westminster School remains on its original site next to the Abbey and is recognised as one of the foremost schools in the world.

The School and its leaders have a strong sense of social responsibility with important school partnerships, including Harris Westminster Sixth Form Academy and The Grey Coat Hospital School, as well as outreach and bursary programmes.
