Best Secondary Schools in Central London
A question we are often asked are ‘Where are the best secondary schools in Central London’. It’s a tough time for parents once their children reach age 11. Parents must look for a different school (unless their current school goes past year 6), it can be a mine field.
Luckily in London, we really are spoilt for choice. There are many secondary schools in Central London and they all vary depending if they are mixed schools, girls or boys only schools. Here is a list of some of the best secondary schools in Central London by Greater London Properties outlining their special features to help parents make the best decision.
Starting off with The Grey Coat Hospital School which is a girls only school based in Westminster. They accept girls from all these areas but are very welcoming to girls that are part of Lambeth council. The school has 1023 pupils aged from 11-18. Ofsted rated them as Outstanding because of their well above average results across all boards from GCSEs to A-levels. 87% of year 11’s received 5+ GCSES A*-C when the national average is 61% and an A-level average of 36.9% when the national average 32.7%.
Next is a fantastic boys only school called Westminster City School, again based in Westminster but easy commuting from Marylebone, Covent Gardens, Fitzrovia, Bloomsbury and Soho. They accept boys from all these areas and are welcoming to boys from Camberwell, Peckham and Kensal Green but naturally, they do offer more places to the boys that are closer to the school. The school has 774 pupils aged from 11-18. Ofsted rated them as Good nearly Outstanding because 60% of year 11’s received 5+ GCSES A*-C which is quite close to the national average and an A-level average of 33.4% which is above the national average.
Finally, a great mixed school called Ark King Solomon Academy which is nearby Marylebone, Fitzrovia and Covent Garden but accepts pupils from across the West End. The school has 896 pupils age 3-18 and Ofsted have rated them as Outstanding for their amazing GCSE results and close to average A-level results. 74% of year 11’s received 5+ GCSES A*-C which is above the national average and a below A level average of 28% but parents have rated it as a fantastic school, especially because 74% of all pupils do not have English as a first language and the school has helped them to achieve the best results.
These are just a few of the best secondary schools in Central London – they offer outstanding results and provide fantastic support for pupils and parents alike, so why not move a bit closer to them to secure a place for children so they can have the best education possible?
