Aims and Ethos

Portland Place School is a leading independent co-educational day school for children aged 10-16, located directly in the heart of the City of Westminster. It was founded with a particular purpose in mind: to be an alternative to the intense, large, examination focused independent day schools of which there are many in London.

The school ethos is to be small, nurturing and be relaxed, encouraging and enabling our pupils to achieve their very best academically, with space to develop and express their creativity and athleticism.

Staff and pupils at this leading school recently celebrated not only a high record of five plus A*-C grades at GCSE Level, with 85% of pupils achieving this, but also being placed in the top 10% of schools nationally for progress based on Value Added Scores for A Levels – the difference between what a pupil does achieves, in comparison to what they were expected to achieve.
