Portland Place Hybrid School

“feels like a modern school for a new era. The world has changed and our schools need to change also. How many of us enjoy a few quiet days working from home, not wearing a suit? So many schools are lagging behind the new world our children find themselves in. The ‘sausage factory approach ‘ just does not work anymore for so many of our kids” – Current Hybrid Parent

Welcome to Portland Place Hybrid School

Portland Place Hybrid School combines established education methods, together with innovative digital learning for students aged 10-16 years.

We offer a Hybrid online & on-site education from Portland Place School, a leading independent co-ed day school based in central London. Established for over twenty-five years, we are a non-selective school whose philosophy of ʻhappiness gets resultsʼ consistently leads to excellent achievement by our students.

The Portland Place Hybrid School share the same ethos and values as Portland Place School – a caring, nurturing, supportive environment where strong academic progress is supported by excellent pastoral care.

Families join our Hybrid School for a variety of reasons; a homeschooling alternative, to help integrate high level sport schedules, an affordable private education, medical reasons and we have proven success with anxious children.
We provide an excellent educational and pastoral experience for families seeking a more flexible learning solution.


How we work

Experienced teachers lead live, online, timetabled lessons where pupil interaction is encouraged. In addition, Students have the option to attend the physical school one day a week for more practical subjects. Class groups are small by design to help support individual progress. Our teachers are on hand to answer any questions and monitor development. Each student is part of a tutor group who come together daily with a dedicated form tutor to provide a consistent contact and outstanding pastoral care. Firefly hub & iPads are supplied to enrolled students with learning tools pre-loaded, so learning can happen anywhere there is an internet connection.

We can accomodate in-year admissions creating a flexi-schooling approach for families.

We offer two learning approaches:

1. A unique hybrid school option. Where students learn online most of the week and attend the physical school near Regents Parks, London either one or two days a week. This enables students to engage with more practical subjects such as design, drama, sports and connect with the hybrid school students, and the wider day school community.
2. Learning online five days a week for students preferring complete online schooling or unable to attend onsite.

A wonderful school... My son started in the online school and is excelling. The teachers are so kind and understanding. There is a good balance of screen time to student study. With one day in school for practical subjects if needed.”
