 Westminster School.
The beginnings of Westminster School can be traced to 1386—7, when Queen Eleanor's accounts show a payment to one master of grammar and 22 boys.
The school was highly respected in the early 17th century, not least for its learned Masters and Deans, such as William Camden, Lancelot Andrewes and Lord Chancellor Williams.
Westminster School can lay claim to the childhood education of notables like Ben Jonson, Abraham Cowley, George Herbert, and possibly Robert Herrick.

 Westminster School - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1943, Westminster Under School was formed as a semi-separate entity for the teaching of day pupils from the ages of 8 to 13 (now 7 to 13).
The School is located primarily in the former grounds of the long-defunct monastery at Westminster Abbey, its buildings surrounding the (private) square Little Dean's Yard (known as 'Yard'), off Dean's Yard, where Church House, the headquarters of the Anglican Church, is sited, along with some of the Houses, the Common Room, and College Hall.
Westminster has an unusual system for naming the school years, which can cause confusion to those not familiar with the system.

 Westminster Abbey and Wesley Carr - An archive relating to Westminster Abbey and Dean Wesley Carr
LORD WEATHERILL, the former speaker of the House of Commons, is set to resign his Westminster Abbey post of high bailiff in protest at the conduct of the dean and canons of the abbey, writes Christopher Morgan.
Weatherill is understood to be appalled by the manner in which Wesley Carr, the dean, sacked Martin Neary, the abbey's organist, in April of this year for alleged gross misconduct.
Jauncey also criticised the dean and canons, for calling a disciplinary hearing at very short notice and wrote: "The abbey's attempt to convene a disciplinary hearing at such short notice and without a detailed statement of the case being made against the Nearys must score gamma minus on the scale of natural justice."

At Westminster, the existence of the school might be traced back to the fourteenth century, the roll of the treasury of Queen Eleanor’s manors recording, in the year 1386–7, a payment to the master of grammar and 22 boys; but Henry VIII first established it on a definite basis.
In his capacity of dean, he may, indeed, seem somewhat dwarfed in comparison with his two successors—bishop Andrewes, and the last of the ecclesiastical lord chancellors, John Williams.
But, both the latter had some cause to be grateful to their predecessor for his thoughtful bequest of that pleasant college retreat at Chiswick, where the elms which he had planted afforded to subsequent generations grateful shade in summer and “a retiring place” from infection when the plague visited the capital.

 DETERMINATION OF LORD JAUNCEY
The two principal matters relied upon by the Dean in his decision as amounting to gross misconduct were the taking of fixing fees and the retention of surpluses in respect of events that were clearly organised on behalf of the Abbey.
When the Dean was told by the Precentor in May 1997 of the possible existence of a Neary fund he decided to await the arrival of the new Canon Treasurer before pursuing the matter.
When it was put to the Dean that on hearing of the fund he should have raised the matter directly with Dr Neary he demurred to the suggestion because he thought that it might merely be a matter of gossip which he was very anxious to discourage (T10/175-7).

The Dean of Westminster has prompted a furious row by refusing to display a commemorative plaque to Cecil Day-Lewis, the former Poet Laureate, in Poet's Corner.
Many writers are also incensed at Dr Carr's treatment of Jill Day-Lewis, the writer's widow, after the dean asked her for references to support the claim for a plaque and questioned her husband's contribution to literature.
The row is particularly embarrassing as the Poet Laureate is an officer of the sovereign's court and the Abbey is a "Royal Peculiar", which comes under the direct jurisdiction of the Queen.
