The Schoolroom at Westminster School. Watercolour. Westminster School dates back to medieval times. The large schoolroom, where all the classes were taught, was formerly the dormitory of the monks of Westminster Abbey. The 'shell' or apse seen at the end of the room gave its name to the school class known as 'shell', still used by many schools today. The names of old boys can be seen painted on the walls. In the 1860s, the school was an elite boarding 'public school', along with Winchester, Eton, Rugby, Harrow, Charterhouse and Shrewsbury.
