Maida Vale School, London

Who do you want to be?
With an experienced new headmaster at the helm, this school is going from strength to strength. Housed in light, airy refurbished Victorian buildings, the school opened in 2020 as part of the Gardener group, a family-run set of co-ed schools, a rare find in London. A wide-ranging array of A levels and BTECs are on offer as part of a curriculum designed to suit the needs of every pupil. Unusually, there are large outside playing areas including an astroturf pitch and a basketball court on site. Given the success of the sister school Kew Gardens, this is definitely a London school to watch!
