Admissions

Admissions for 2018 entry are currently open.

Harris Westminster has been created to provide an outstanding academic education for able students living in London no matter what their socio-economic background. All students must meet the academic threshold based on examinations and interview and preference is given to students who have been in receipt of Free School Meals during their secondary schooling. Currently approximately 50% of students come from this group with the remaining 50% representing a wide social and economic range.

Entrance is by academic test and interview. Through the entrance test and interview, we are looking for students with the academic potential and ambition to make the most of what is on offer. Not all students will have extensive knowledge of their chosen subjects before they get here, but we aim to identify their potential and know they will be capable of working at a high academic level once they arrive. Students take two entrance examinations, choosing from their four subject choices and will have one interview on their preferred subject choice. The offer of a place is conditional on performance at GCSE with a minimum requirement of 6Bs including at least A grades in the subjects chosen for study but the majority of students accepted into the school have attainment far above this minimum.
