Westminster Academy is an Academy (publicly funded, semi-independent secondary school) located in London, England. It is a co-educational school for pupils of 11+ years, and specialises in International Business and Enterprise.[1] The school was created, along with nearby Paddington Academy, following the closure of North Westminster Community School.

Westminster Academy has recently been awarded the FA Charter Standard Award and the Sportsmark Award.[citation needed]


Westminster Academy opened in September 2006 in temporary accommodation at Penfold Street in the London borough of the City of Westminster. v This building was formerly the Marylebone Lower School site of North Westminster Community School. The school moved into new purpose-built premises in the summer of 2007. The new site is in the Westbourne Green area. The architects are Allford Hall Monaghan Morris.[2]


Westminster Academy is a comprehensive school which does not select pupils for admission. Admissions are administered by Westminster City Council through the Pan London Coordinated Admission System.

Westminster Academy is one of the most highly selective schools in London for their Sixth form, which currently offers the International Baccalaureate with the IBDP.
