A Haven of Creativity

At Portland Place, our creative approach to academic study helps your child find their own path to learning. It’s the same goal, but with a different journey.

We nurture a spirit of discovery with an individual learning programme that will inspire your child and stretch their horizons….


“A godsend for the discerning parent.”

“Always known for the close relationship between staff and pupils, its slightly informal atmosphere compared to some London schools feels comfortable rather than chaotic.”

The annual ice skating event to Somerset House took place this week.  A lovely pre-christmas trip organised by the Portland Place Parents Network.

We are very proud to announce that Portland Place School won the APG Innovation Award (again) this year for the development of our hybrid School, Portland Place Online. This is the second time PPS has won this award having done...

A lovely festive atmosphere at the RADA studio during the Portland Place Christmas Concert and an opportunity to showcase the talents of the choirs and music groups as well as individuals.

Last week we held our first Student Council meeting chaired by our Student Leaders. This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to have their voices heard and implement change.

So pleased to welcome Rosemary Works School for a Music & Drama masterclass using content from The Wizard of Oz – all the students were FABULOUS with the singing, dancing and script work 👏
