Values and Ethos
Eaton Square Mayfair offers a breadth and depth of education that goes beyond examination success and into every sphere of life. Intellectual, artistic, aesthetic, physical and musical pursuits enjoy equal emphasis. We are passionate about our pupils learning moral and spiritual values that will help them to become happy and confident young adults.
Our curriculum is based on developing cross-curricular skills which focus on the holistic development of each pupil. The school is committed to maintaining class and group sizes small enough for tuition to be highly pupil-focused, encouraging outstanding individual achievement.
There is always an emphasis on pastoral care, in terms of both contact time and staffing, in an effort to deliver a highly personalised education and a quality of pastoral care rarely seen in day schools.
We aim to promote a reflective culture among our teaching staff, with a commitment to learning and professional development, so that the highest teaching standards are achieved and maintained.
The school celebrates the diverse skills and aptitudes of London pupils, and maximise the benefits of their learning. We encourage teachers to use London’s nearby galleries, museums and iconic landmarks as an extended classroom for pupils, in order to promote culture and provide an all-round education. It will also use the surrounding Royal Parks, the River Thames and nearby sporting facilities to enrich pupils' experience of physical education, promoting health, team spirit and a sense of belonging in the capital.
Eaton Square Mayfair is a part of Dukes Education, a family of schools and education organisations based in the UK. We bring together schools that are diverse in their offering, and yet united as outstanding examples of teaching and learning.
As part of Dukes, Eaton Square Mayfair will continue to lead on all decisions and retain its independence. Dukes adds to this the benefit of the collective, providing security and support, a platform for sharing best practice, and the reassurance of a host of all-through education options.
Our School provides warmth in the heart of Mayfair. Our pupils have a range of skills and talents and we work closely with each individual to nurture their potential. We are on an exciting journey, come join us!- Caroline Townshend and John Wilson (Co-Heads of Eaton Square Mayfair)
