London Senior Schools Focus
The London senior-school market can be a competitive and complicated minefield. To help, we've put together an edited list of the best senior schools in the UK capital – read our reviews, watch our videos and use our search tools to find the right one for your child. 

Where to begin?

If you're just starting out on your London senior-school search, having the right knowledge at your fingertips is key. Catherine Thomlinson, the former head of a top London prep school, tells parents how to navigate the all-important 11+, from drawing up a shortlist of schools to tips for calming nerves on exam and interview day. And remember: if you need more guidance, our parent advisory team is on hand. 







Senior schools regularly tell us how easy it is to spot overly tutored pupils – but what can parents do if they feel their children need a little extra support? Henry Faber and Walter Kerr, founders of Oppidan Education, explain how mentoring can help children prepare for the leap to senior school.



Older pupils may be considering a move for the final two years of their time at school. We asked Irfan Latif, principal of DLD College London, to tell us about the advantages of moving to a sixth-form college in the city – and give us the lowdown on the benefits of a boarding education in the heart of London.
