Values & Ethos

Welcome to Holland Park School. We are a very successful and oversubscribed comprehensive school in the heart of west central London.

Several times Ofsted outstanding and with results frequently in the top 5% of all schools nationally we stand at the apogee of achievement and success. Featured in The Good Schools’ Guide, a Platinum Investor in People school and with a plethora of accolades and awards, we enjoy success and all of the work that is required to keep us there. The school is proud of its diversity – diversity in all respects. We educate young people from all walks of life, spanning those who are enormously privileged to those carving out success with the odds stacked against them. Little wonder that Ofsted commented on the power of social justice in school. We encourage you to read our website including the links to The Good Schools’ Guide and our Ofsted report.

We endeavour at all times to ensure that school creates an open, well-balanced environment, a warm atmosphere in which people can feel appropriately challenged by high expectations and able to fulfill their widest human potential by feeling safe and contented. Our ambition is that people can capitalise on their individual potential: achievement is a relative term and success is found in a myriad of ways. We wish people to thrive as individuals whilst contributing to communal aspirations: a balance of the person and the institution.
