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….

It was another Wigmore House win at sports day this year – but a fantastic day for students, staff and parents! Well done to all involved.

Fantastic to see so much support at the Year 6 & 7 Showcase in the RADA studios this week. The students put together a brilliant evening for their teachers and parents. Well done 👏

Smiles and laughter from Ms Judd, Ms Lewis and students at our Year 11 leavers assembly – tinged with sadness of course. We wish them all well as they head into study leave and exams. Good Luck!
