We are honoured to be Co-Heads at Eaton Square Mayfair. The school is about to take its first steps on a journey that we believe will see it evolve and grow into one of the most exciting, innovative and inspiring places to study GCSE or A level in London and perhaps the world.
We will combine all the benefits of a traditional British school, with all the opportunities provided by the ‘blank canvas’ presented by being a brand-new school. We will emulate some of the best and most successful schools in the country, but imitate none of them as we seek to deliver only the very best for our unique body of young people. Operating from a building that is beautiful, awe-inspiring and wonderfully located, Eaton Square Mayfair is already such a fabulous place to work and our richly diverse and interesting student body means that every member of our community learns something from someone everyday.
As a small but growing school, we hope to be able to provide an almost bespoke curriculum as we build firstly our GCSE and then our A level programmes. We will listen to the requirements and expectations of our young people and their parents and, guided by the advice of our expert staff, they will select subject options that will provide them access to a huge variety of career paths and future study options. Alongside this academic focus lies a rich and varied extra-curricular experience ranging from traditional team sports to activities as diverse as cross-fit, computing and fencing. London is our classroom and our teachers will rarely miss an opportunity to enrich the lives of our young people by offering opportunities to see concerts, exhibitions and drama or even just to spend time outdoors exploring our historic and unique central London location.
Eaton Square is growing quickly but this is just the start. Come and join us on our journey! We look forward to welcoming learners, parents and teachers alike as we seek to create an exceptional school for exceptional young people in Mayfair and in the heart of London.
