The Mathematics Department is the largest recruiter of sixth form students and a significant number pursue studies in mathematics and further mathematics into Higher Education. Pupils enjoy the study of this subject across all key stages and we run a wide range of extra-curricular activities. At GCSE, we provide a personalised programme of study and we enrich pupils’ love of mathematics through the delivery of additional qualifications including further mathematics and statistics.

We are proud of the achievements of our pupils and our GCSE and A level outcomes are above national averages, with a particularly impressive number achieving grade 7 and above at GCSE.

Westminster City School is a successful 11-18 boys’ Christian non -denominational comprehensive academy with a mixed sixth form. Ours is a lively and vibrant learning community situated in the heart of central London with all the challenges and advantages of an inner city school. The school was judged as ‘Good’ by Ofsted in early 2013 with its curriculum and governance judged to be ‘Outstanding’. In 2017 OFSTED judged the school as continuing to be "Good". We are not complacent and are pro-active in our ambition to become recognised as an “Outstanding” school and standards have improved considerably since that judgement. 

We believe in developing our staff and have a dynamic and supportive management team and an effective CPD programme which includes a regular teaching and learning forum.  We welcome applications from experienced teachers and those aspiring to middle leadership.
