What the school says...

The West London Free School was the first free school to sign a funding agreement with Michael Gove and was opened by Boris Johnson in September 2011. It was set up by a group of parents and teachers led by the author and journalist Toby Young.

Since opening in 2011, the school has become the most popular state secondary school in Hammersmith and Fulham, with 10 applicants for every place, and is currently the 13th most popular state secondary in England. It offers children a classical liberal education, focusing on a core of academic subjects complemented by art, music, drama and competitive sport.

It aims to become one of the best schools in the country, renowned for academic excellence and capable of instilling world-beating ambition in all its pupils, no matter what their background.

120 pupils are admitted each year, of which 12 are admitted according to musical aptitude. The music scholars receive free instrumental tuition.
