The Friends of Westminster School

The Friends of Westminster School aims to ensure that former parents and former staff can stay involved in life at Westminster through events, news updates and special invitations to School occasions.  Members of the group will automatically receive School news and invitations to events as long as we've got contact information, so please make sure we're up-to-date!  Most communications are sent by email and Friends can register to update their details here.

A Steering Committee works with the Development Office to plan a fun and attractive calendar of events for our members.  New members are encouraged to join the committee. New members are encouraged to join the committee, please click here for more details.

NB. Parents with a child currently at the School should update their details in the normal way - via the parents' intranet or by contacting the Head Master's Secretary. 


Forthcoming events

Friends Tours Lent Term 2017

The Friends of Westminster School Steering Committee is delighted to offer several small-group tours for Lent Term 2017. These events can provide a good way to get to know other former Westminster parents in a more intimate setting than is offered by our larger-scale events at the School. All tours are coordinated by volunteers and details of meeting places will be given in the confirmation email sent to registrants upon booking. Kindly note that it is not possible for us to refund tickets purchased once they have been booked. Tours are generally offered as close to cost-price as possible and any funds raised through Friends events are donated to the Westminster School Bursary Fund.

Please note carefully the time of the tour for which you are booking as we often run two consecutive tours and it is generally not possible to swap times once they have been booked.

Thursday, 23rd February - Friends Tours of Christie's (booking here)
Thursday, 9th March - Friends Tours of Spitalfields (booking below)

Friends Tour of Spitalfields 2017 - tour 1 (3 pm start) (Sold Out)
Friends Tour of Spitalfields 2017
Join us for this fascinating tour of the Spitalfields area of London with an expert guide. Spitalfields takes its name from the hospital and priory, St. Mary’s Spittel that was founded in 1197. Lying in the heart of the East End, it is an area known for its spirit and strong sense of community. It was in a field next to the priory where the now famous market first started in the thirteenth century.

Our guide is Charlie de Wet, Chair of the 'Huguenots of Spitalfields' charity set up to highlight the contribution the Huguenots made to this country. As well as staging festivals, walks, talks and events Charlie is involved in an educational and heritage programme. Charlie is a qualified guide and conducts over 100 tours a year to support the charity.

Kindly note that no toilets will be available until the end point of this walk (at the Water Poet pub - see below).

Drinks afterwards at a pub near the end of the walk - the Water Poet: www.waterpoet.co.uk (cash bar)
