La Retraite - Atkins Road, SW12 0AR

Bishop Thomas Grant - Belltrees Grove, Streatham, SW16

The Laurels School - 126 Atkins Road, Clapham, SW12 0AN (Girls 11-18)

We would like to share the exciting news that The Laurels School, currently based in Clapham, will be relocating to: 1 Chelsea Embankment, London SW3 4LG in September 2019.
Recently we were mentioned as one of the best small independent secondary schools in the UK by the Daily Telegraph and it is equally worthy of note that a Laurels education is prized for its emphasis on character and virtue. We hope this information will be of interest to those who may be looking for an education which seeks to educate the whole person with a highly personalised approach. 
Open Day is Saturday 17 November 2018.  Two sessions are available: 11am – 1pm and also between 2pm to 4 pm. The latter time is also for the Sixth Form. You can find out more about us on our website To attend the Open Day, please contact: for more details.  We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to our new school location in Chelsea.
