中英桥观点

不是什么学校都能叫西敏的,这是阶级与社会责任的代表。
威斯敏斯特学院与威斯敏斯特教堂相邻,靠近国会大厦,地理位置在英国所有的学校当中名望相当高。因此,与主广场对开的宿舍楼之间则显得非常紧凑并紧密相连。与市中心大多数的私立学校一样,体育运动设施受限,但是学校具有非常浓厚的赛艇传统——据说学校的赛艇运动在与伊顿公学的一次竞赛中获得了胜利。威斯敏斯特学院具有竞争力,大多数学生来自他们自己对口的预备学校。该校教学水准非常高,2017年88名学生被牛津大学、剑桥大学录取。

院校概述

It is an ancient school in the heart of London, the only one still to occupy its original site, immediately next to Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament. Its origins can be traced to a charity school established by the Benedictine monks of the Abbey of St Peter, and it is more than likely that this spiritual and educational tradition goes back as far as 960 AD.

After the dissolution of the monasteries in 1540, King Henry VIII personally ensured the School’s survival by statute. His daughter, Queen Elizabeth I, confirmed the royal patronage in 1560 whereby the Abbey and School formed the one collegiate foundation. She is therefore celebrated as the School’s Founder and her importance is marked by a statue in Little Dean’s Yard by Matthew Spender OW, unveiled by her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in June 2010.

Today, Westminster is one of the leading academic schools in the country. Pupils achieve exceptional examination results and entrance to some of the top universities in the world. It is a busy, passionate and purposeful place where independent and deep thinking is enjoyed, encouraged and respected by all, and where holistic excellence is nurtured and valued.

Fundamentally, we want our pupils to engage in a constructive, thoughtful process of “loyal dissent”. While we encourage them to embrace the principles of a liberal education, respect genuine scholarship and appreciate a deep and rigorous learning process, they are equally encouraged to challenge, question and explore the content of that learning, to push boundaries and overturn expectations – mindful at all times of the feelings of others.

Most importantly, we want our pupils to use their skills and intelligence to help others, to build up not put down, and to benefit society. For centuries, Westminster School has been the educational cradle of some very distinguished people. Our task is to help future generations of pupils to follow in their footsteps and make a positive difference in the world.

校长理念

Westminster’s academic pre-eminence is a result of our pupils embracing intellectual enquiry and debate and applying these skills with a relish well beyond the prescribed syllabus. It is thanks to this avowedly liberal academic ethos that pupils achieve exceptional public exam results and gain entrance to the top universities worldwide.

Each year around 45% of pupils are accepted by the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, 50% choose courses to suit them at the country’s other leading universities and 5% (a growing number) take up places at leading universities in North America. Westminster parents also choose the School for their sons and daughters (the Sixth Form has been fully co-educational for almost half a century) for the astonishing range of opportunities beyond the classroom, for example in music, drama, sport and debating. Pupils are also keen to look outward and to play their part in the life of the local community through a programme of civic engagement rooted in close relationships with neighbouring maintained schools, both primary and secondary, charities and other organisations, both in the UK and overseas.

Around a quarter of Westminster pupils are boarders and the School’s boarding ethos, with its extended day and week, benefits both boarders and day pupils alike, marrying the energy of a day school with the breathing space afforded by boarding, and all in a unique central-London setting that is second to none.

The nurturing of each pupil’s interests and talents to the highest degree means that there is no such thing as a typical Westminster pupil, all of whom are encouraged to make their school experience their own, supported by a staff who care about them as individuals and by an excellent system of pastoral care. In addition to their academic development, pupils throw themselves into a whole host of other pursuits. Two whole afternoons each week are devoted to sport (with pupils able to choose from an eclectic range of options at a level to suit them), while earnest debate about all matters under the sun (whether organised or just a passing conversation in Yard) is a staple of Westminster life. What they have in common is that they emerge from Westminster articulate and confident, with a strong sense of social responsibility, ready for university and to make a difference in the wider world.

The School’s unique setting, which it has occupied for centuries between the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey (our de facto School Chapel), embraces everyone who lives, works and studies here in a very special atmosphere. Politics has been an abiding interest throughout Westminster’s long history and the importance of spiritual and moral reflection is deeply embedded within its educational tradition. The proximity of London’s museums, galleries, concert halls and theatres, and our links with universities around the world, mean that a Westminster education reaches and resonates well beyond the School’s ancient boundaries.

I hope you will come and see all this for yourself on an Open Day or School Tour. Stepping into the secure oasis of Dean’s Yard at the heart of the School, and strolling around the quiet streets and squares behind it where other facilities like the science laboratories, music centre, theatre and sports ground are situated, I trust that you will immediately have a sense of the distinctive education we take pleasure and pride in providing.

I look forward to meeting you and your sons and daughters.
