Private Secondary School in London

Portland Place School is an independent school for boys and girls aged between 10 – 16 years, located in the heart of central London.

As a school we have always been renowned as a small, nurturing and relaxed place; a wonderful happy alternative to the highly pressurised, exam-orientated London schools.

We believe that exceptional teaching, combined with a modern curriculum inside and outside the classroom, provides the best stimulus for children to become inquisitive, open-minded and creative learners and achieve beyond exams.

We cater for a wide range of abilities and learning styles, achieving strong results at GCSE.  At Portland Place School we focus on best preparing our students for any path they wish to take, inclusive of A-level courses, BTEC, Foundation courses and apprenticeships.

More importantly, our students come to school with a smile and are proud to be part of the Portland Place School community.

Private school tours are now available for individual families.
