What The Good Schools Guide says..
Located in one of the most fashionable and expensive corners of London, its demographic is very different from many schools of its kind across the capital. But only because standards are high. Parents who once might have saved and scrimped to go private are celebrating the fact that their children can be educated to such a high standard, funded by their taxes alone.
What the school says...
Holland Park School is an Ofsted outstanding school. Its examination performance in 2013 fell in the top 2% of all schools nationally and almost all students achieve 5 A* to C in English and mathematics. It boasts equally outstanding Sixth Form results and launches its students to a range of first class universities. It holds the Investors in People award at gold level, is a member of The Prince's Teaching Institute and enjoys links with English National Opera and many other organisations. The writer Alan Bennett and the poet Simon Armitage are, amongst others, friends of the school. The new school building opened in late 2012 and is a stunning piece of architecture. Students benefit from splendid facilities including a Multi-Use Games Area, a 4G Astro Turf pitch; tennis courts; a 25m swimming pool; professional dance studios; a music recording studio; Music technology suites (Apple Mac); Media Suite; drama studios; dedicated Sixth Form library and reading room. The school is driven, fast-paced and ambitious for its students. In the national league tables it exhibits the highest order of value-added and is frequently visited by other schools seeking to glean from its practices and success. ...Read more

He still manages to find the time to teach English, which is the subject he has chosen to teach since his first job at Thurston Community School (now...
