Although the vast majority of our boys go on to Westminster Great School, a smaller minority choose to continue their education elsewhere.

The academic achievement of the boys at the Under School almost always enables our pupils to gain acceptance to the senior school of their choice and a great many of our leavers reach a standard that allows them to receive a scholarship or award of some description. You can find details of the senior schools chosen by our leavers for past years below.

2018

Our 67 leavers joined the following senior schools:

Westminster: 57
Eton: 8
Winchester: 1
Harrow: 1

Exceptionally strong academic standards have been maintained with WUS being awarded six of the eight Queen’s Scholarships for Westminster School for the third year in a row. Three of the non-boarding boys received Honorary Scholarships and one also received the Richard Edlin Maths Prize.

At Eton one of our boys was awarded the King’s Scholarship and of the four boys who took the Common Entrance examination, all received starred passes.

2017

Our 65 leavers joined the following senior schools:

Westminster: 54
Eton: 8
Rugby: 1
Winchester: 2

Boys taking the Westminster Challenge matched last year’s results with six of our boys being awarded only eight available Queen’s Scholarship places. Four Honorary Scholarships were also awarded to boys who did not wish to board. Additionally, three boys gained Exhibitions and one boy was also awarded the Richard Edlin Maths Prize.

At Eton two of our boys were awarded the King’s Scholarship.

2016

Our 66 leavers joined the following senior schools:

Westminster: 54

Winchester: 3
Harrow: 1

This was a bumper year for the Under School.  For the first time ever, six of our Under School boys gained places for only eight Queen’s Scholars at Westminster School. Three non-boarding boys also won Honorary Scholarships, results which meant that, in effect, all of the top nine performers in the Challenge came from the Under School. Thirteen boys in all won awards at Westminster.

News from Eton was also extremely good: one King’s Scholarship was gained with an additional Oppidan scholarship while another boy was placed in the small Proxime class. Our boy who applied for Harrow came top in their examinations out of everyone in the country who applied that year.

Westminster: 58
Eton: 7
