All about Eaton Square Mayfair

Set in the heart of London’s Piccadilly, Eaton Square Upper School, Mayfair will open its doors to students for the first time this September.

With a stunning Grade I listed building as its setting, the school is located directly opposite Green Park and boasts an iconic design with a rich and fascinating history. The school is also connected to the existing Eaton Square Nurseries, Pre-Prep and Preparatory schools, as well as the wider Minerva Education group, meaning it is ideal for families and children from across central London who wish to remain within the family of schools.

Eaton Square Upper spans five storeys and will cater for more than 400 students aged between 11 and 18 years. With a holistically-minded admission process that focuses on school references and face-to-face interviews, the new school will provide a seamless transition from junior to senior school for all students.

At the forefront of Eaton Square Mayfair, headmasters Sebastian Hepher and Phillip Williams will be leading the new team of teachers, teaching assistants and wider educational consultants responsible for delivering the carefully curated academic timetable and extensive programme of extra-curricular clubs and activities. With a combined career spanning over 50 years, Sebastian and Phillip have extensive experience in both co-educational and single sex schools, and will be bringing their knowledge, passion and expertise in holistic education to the new school.

In order to continue the Eaton Square philosophy, which centres on a well-rounded, family-focused approach to education, the school has been designed to include a host of high-spec facilities that will provide students with a rich and diverse curriculum. In addition to lecture style classrooms and multiple science laboratories, the school also features extensive art, DT and drama studios and a purpose built canteen.

Eaton Square Upper will also be taking advantage of its well-connected, central location by hosting regular lessons and activities in many of London’s iconic attractions. From PE and sports clubs on Green Park to history classes and drama sessions in famous museums and theatres, students and parents will be invited to put forward their own suggestions for extra-curricular activities and exciting additions to the academic timetable.

The Eaton Square Upper School Vision

We are the only senior school in Mayfair, a stone’s throw from the hundreds of acres of green space afforded by the Royal Parks. The education we provide has a traditional British foundation, but a modern and international outlook. We celebrate the diverse skills and aptitudes of London pupils, and maximise the benefits of their learning from and interacting with each other. We understand and respond to the requirements of pupils and families in the heart of the capital.
