London as a classroom

London as a classroom

Without doubt, London is one of the most amazing cities on earth. At every turn, it offers captivating history, dynamic diversity, world-leading culture and art, and glorious green spaces.

As a school, we ensure that our students enjoy and learn from all the rich resources available to them in London and the home counties. This includes organising visits to museums, art galleries, historic buildings, theatres, concerts, student conferences, parks, woodlands and nature centres to study wildlife.

Our aim is to nurture individuals who are open to the outside world, love to inquire, challenge and create, and want to make a difference in their adult lives.
