Our Vision

The West London Free School offers academic excellence, attentive pastoral support and a thriving co-curricular programme, allowing pupils to become the best version of themselves. As a member of the Knowledge Schools Trust, we are driven by a common desire to overcome inequality of opportunity through education. Our school environment fosters in pupils three Core Values, which we promote at every opportunity:  

Hard Work 
High Standards.


We teach a rigorous, knowledge-rich curriculum to all pupils, irrespective of background. This curriculum introduces pupils to the best and most important work in the humanities and sciences, preparing them to participate fully in debates about contemporary issues, as well as the universal questions that have interested humankind throughout history. Pupils make exceptional progress at West London Free School, with around half of our GCSE entries graded 7 to 9 (see here). Most importantly, our pupils leave school with confidence and poise, possessing a treasure trove of essential knowledge, allowing them to understand both themselves and the world they inhabit.  


Pupil success at the West London Free School is underpinned by outstanding pastoral support, high standards of behaviour, and rewards for those who exemplify our values. A spirit of membership and friendly competition is encouraged through our House System, that runs vertically through all year groups. Our Personal Development Curriculum promotes polite debate and provides pupils with tools to navigate the path to adulthood. As a music specialist school, music is at the heart of school life, providing an accompaniment to major school events. With our thriving co-curricular programme, pupils also thrive in the arts and sport, and we expect all pupils to contribute to the wider life of the school. 

Sixth Form

The majority of pupils remain with us after the age of sixteen at our high-performing Sixth From on a separate, nearby site in Hammersmith (see here). Our Sixth Form students receive superb A-level teaching and bespoke support in preparation for their next steps. Having gained exceptional A-level grades (see here), our students go on to study at some of the best universities in the world, as well as for degree-apprenticeships and at leading art and music colleges.  


The education we offer at the West London Free School empowers pupils to achieve their aspirations. However, it is much more than just a preparation for the workplace. A West London Free School education prepares pupils to be active citizens and good human beings, interested in the world around them, and ready to contribute positively to its future.
