About the School
Latymer Upper School is a leading independent day school in London. Their curriculum keeps the best part of the British education system, while looking for other parts that are beneficial to students, such as their Global Goals course in Year 9, and the World Perspectives course at GCSE level.
In the Sixth Form, Latymer has their distinctive Latymer Diploma programme to enrich students’ final two years of school. Short courses are also offered to stimulate students’ curiosity, and to provide them with opportunities to take on leadership roles.
