College life at Westminster Tutors is friendly, lively and inclusive, and new students are warmly welcomed by those already at the college. The head boy and head girl, who are annually elected by students and staff, take responsibility for arranging student events and activities, as well as ensuring that the views of all are heard and taken into account.
Weekly sport sessions at the Chelsea Leisure Centre on the King’s Road are compulsory for GCSE students and many A level students also take part. Five-a-side football teams play matches in order to win the hotly contested Westminster Tutors Cup. Chess is popular amongst students with an annual tournament in which both students and teachers take part.
Our Art and Art History teacher regularly arranges sessions in the London galleries, and we visit the Natural History Museum Wildlife Garden twice a year. It is also possible to arrange to have Music lessons in the college with visiting teachers from the Royal College of Music
Weekly PSHCE (Personal Social Health and Citizenship Education) sessions are an opportunity to bring students together for a lively exchange of ideas and opinions, and include visits from guest speakers, as well as sessions on a wide range of topics including UCAS, careers information, study skills, and personal safety.
Tutors make use of the nearby South Kensington museums, arranging visits for their students as appropriate, and students attend UCL lectures and London University taster courses relevant to their interests or future studies. Each year we arrange at least one theatre trip to a critically acclaimed West End theatre production, and the students themselves arrange additional social events and activities.
