Westminster Secondary School is a public high school in London, Ontario, Canada, at 230 Base Line Road West.

Westminster is administered by the Thames Valley District School Board. Approximately 750 students attend the school in South West London, in grades nine to twelve, plus a co-op program.

The school mascot is the wildcat. Westminster is known for the strength of its various programs, which include drama, visual arts, their award-winning model United Nations club and boys' basketball.[citation needed]

In April 2006, the Westminster U.N. club, led by Mr. Smith, head of the history department, took home two major awards at the year-end meet. Both, Best Sr. Delegation, and Best Jr. Delegation were taken home, won by John Benbow and Ali Hassan respectively.[citation needed]

In May 2006, the students and staff hosted a Relay for Life for the Canadian Cancer Society. The Wildcat students and staff raised over $20,000 in a pursuit to find a cure for cancer.

In April 2012, Westminster held its annual campaign raising approximately $5000 for pediatric cancer research.
