Mayor of London launches Harris Westminster Sixth Form

The Harris Westminster Sixth Form was formally launched last night with a reception at the House of Lords, attended by the Mayor of London and 80 students from across the capital.

The event was hosted by Lord Harris of Peckham and the students were addressed by the Mayor, who called it a ‘historic’ occasion. He spoke about the ethos that makes Westminster a successful school and described what London needs from this new Sixth Form. 

He said: 

“We need great schools , the best schools on earth that are going to enable our city to compete with the great growth economies of Asia and Europe…We need schools that are going to get children from London into the very, very  best universities and that is the ambition of this Sixth Form.”

The Mayor stayed at the event to pose for photos with students – a selection of which have been put on this website.

Students were also able to meet our Principal, Mr James Handscombe.  In his speech he told them:

“I hope to see a lot of you starting as our first students next September because the most amazing thing about this project is you. Bright, interesting, talented young people getting together every day to study new ideas in lessons, to work on shared projects, whether that’s a dramatic production or completing a maths problem set and experiencing together all the tremendous opportunities that are going to come from our location here, at the centre of things.”

We are extremely grateful to the Lord Speaker, Baroness D'Souza, for kindly allowing us to use the River Room at the House of Lords for the event.

Thank you to all the students who came along.  There was a great atmosphere in the room and it was excellent to meet so many of you.
