Leading independent school in
the heart of Central London

Portland Place School is a leading independent co-educational school for children aged 10-16, located directly in the heart of the City of Westminster.

Described by The Good Schools’ Guide as “A godsend for the discerning parent”, Portland Place School opened in the 90s to support the parents who didn’t want to put their child through the 11+ exams and preferred to focus on their education.

The ethos of Portland Place School has always been to develop each individual pupil’s potential through personalised learning. The class sizes are small to ensure every pupil can benefit from a bespoke learning experience. Independent statistical evidence shows that Portland Place School “adds significant value” often one to two grades to those originally predicated. Part of the value-added is the superb range of co-curricular opportunities available to pupils.

A refreshing alternative to the traditional learning environments, and acknowledging that by cultivating creativity through enabling students to use their imagination and develop their personal passion or particular interest, Portland Place School prides itself on facilitating creative outputs in all aspects of school life.

At Portland Place School, it is believed that warmth, care and happiness are essential ingredients of a successful education.
