Portland Place Hybrid School

Welcome to Portland Place Hybrid School.

We offer an online 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.

In 2020, Portland Place pioneered the first hybrid school, offering a mix of online and on-site learning. Portland Place Hybrid School has gone from strength to strength, providing the same standards of academic and pastoral care that befit an Alpha Plus independent school.

We provide two learning options – either learning online five days a week or hybrid learning. The hybrid school allows students to mainly learn at home, online, supplemented with one or two days per week in the day school for more practical subjects.

We aim to provide a flexible alternative for families whose working patterns are changing as well as widening access to independent education.

The Portland Place Hybrid School model means students learn mainly online following a regular timetable of lessons. Live lessons will be taught by teachers through video conferencing tools. Students enrolled with the hybrid model will spend one day per week at Portland Place School near Regent Place to work on science experiments, use the School Art and Design facilities, supplementing the online learning with those practical activities sometimes difficult to replicate at home.

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

Our aims are:

  • To encourage aspiration, resilience and a love of learning in our pupils in a secure, supportive and inclusive environment;
  • To ensure each pupil achieves their best personally, socially and academically;
  • To encourage service to our wider community leading pupils to respect and value its diversity.

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.”
