The pages in this section of the website provide details specifically relating to  7+, 8+ and 11+ entry to Westminster Under School, outlining the application process, registration timelines, eligibility criteria, fees and opportunities for assistance with fees (Bursaries and Scholarships), to ensure that parents of prospective pupils have everything needed to be able to apply for a place at the School. To support the application process, we have a dedicated and experienced admissions team, who are available to answer any questions applicant families may have and who make applying to the School easy and undaunting.

It is important to note that those applying for 11+ entry to Westminster Under School cannot, at the same time, apply for 13+ entry to Westminster School. Details regarding transition to Westminster School can be found on each of the entry point pages.

Co-Education and Pre-Prep

2026 will see the start of one of the most significant and exciting set of changes in the almost 500-year history of Westminster — the introduction of girls into all years, and a new pre-prep.

2026: Girls and boys will join a brand new pre-prep in Reception year at Westminster Under School
2026: Girls will also join boys at Westminster Under School in Years 3 and 7
2028: Girls will join boys in Westminster School’s Year 9 Fifth Form


While the School’s standard entry points are at 7+, 8+ and 11+, sometimes, due to the departure of a family from the School, there may be occasional places available for boys in Year 5 and Year 6. Find out more about Occasional Places and their criteria.
