Westminster School’s 60th Anniversary marks another important milestone in our history. We plan to celebrate our commemorative year online and through a series of tailored events, and invite all members of our School community to join with us in recognising this momentous achievement.
On 7 February 1961, Westminster opened its doors to 143 foundation students - all boys, across Years 1 to 8 (equivalent). It was on that day the School’s first Headmaster Douglas Highmoor Forder famously declared to the assembled students, parents, staff and live radio audience: Let the life of the School begin.
To mark our 60th anniversary, we invite you to participate in our Next60 Giving Day, Thursday 17 June, to raise $1 million. If we reach this goal it will help us create the best version of our new Cultural Precinct.
We are adding an alumni section to our website and as a valued member of our community, we would love to hear from our Old Scholars. Whether you’d like to share a reflection piece on your time at Westminster, your journey post your time here or where your career has taken you – please send us your details by clicking the Share Your Story button and we will get back to you if we have any questions.
