Westminster established the original Platform course as a way to inspire and encourage bright Year 5 pupils who show exceptional academic potential and energy for learning.
The success of the course has encouraged the School to go further and produce an additional similar venture for Year 10 students. Platform+ is an academic enrichment course, which will initially focus on the STEM subjects, primarily Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Computer Science. Participants will be able to study stretching and challenging material delivered by Westminster School teachers in their newly refurbished science block.
Successful applicants participate in a free one-year programme of Saturday morning sessions, approximately every three weeks, to fuel their ambition and to allow their academic potential to flourish.
