Holland Park School
Holland Park is a highly successful and over-subscribed comprehensive school in the heart of west central London. It is recognised as an 'Outstanding' school by Ofsted, and praised in the Good Schools Guide as having results which "speak for themselves". In 2015 the school was accredited as a Teaching School in recognition of its exceptional practice. The school's results are regularly measured to be in the top 5% in the country.
The school is profoundly committed to exacting high standards, to formality, to demanding creative excellence from its staff and students. It is a driven institution where students' success lies at the core of all planning. It seeks to be ambitious and to be bold for students' futures. Seeing people's potential and making detailed plans for its realisation is at the centre of its approach. Recognising people's personal strengths and development profile is important.
Career planning for staff and students is intentionally diverse and personalised, building on capacity and believing that aspiration is for all. Very little at Holland Park happens by chance or accident: this is a planned, well-articulated institution which relishes its responsibility for driving forwards fast and is passionate about equality of opportunity.
