OWCA Trust Fund

By a Deed of Settlement dated 15th September 1958, the OWCA Trust fund was set up as a registered charity to mark the Golden Jubilee of the Old Westminster Citizens Association. The Founder Trustees were Old Boys who had achieved both at the School and in their professions and  wished to establish a fund for the long term benefit of students of Westminster City School. The purpose of the Fund as established by the deed, aims to provide out of income revenue, additional benefits that are not affordable as such from funds available to the School Governors or from the State. Over the last 50 years the Trustees have, with the Headmasters’ guidance, made numerous substantial grants for the purchase of items of equipment for music art, sciences, technology, scholarships, travel, field studies, trips and many more initiatives that make a schoolboy’s life more rewarding. The Trustees were especially pleased to provide funds for equipment and refurbishing of rooms for information technology. If you wish to donate to the fund please click here.
