Westminster School

school in Westminster, UK

Westminster School is a historic public school in Westminster, London, England, within the precincts of Westminster Abbey and beside the Houses of Parliament. It can be traced to a charity school founded by the Westminister Benedictine monks before the Norman Conquest in 1066, documented by the Croyland Chronicle and a charter of King Offa. Its unbroken existence is clear from the early 14th century. Boys are admitted to Under School at the age of seven and by examination to the senior school at 13, girls to the Sixth Form at 16. The school has some 750 pupils; about a quarter are mainly weekday boarders, free to go home after Saturday morning school. The school motto Dat Deus Incrementum refers to 1 Corinthians 3:6: "I planted the seed and Apollos watered it, but God made it grow" The school was one of nine examined by the Clarendon Commission of 1861 and reformed by the Public Schools Acts.
