Bales is an Independent School and Sixth Form College for ages 11-18. We accept UK and international students. Most of our students have grown up locally, with around 10% being international.

We are located in Kensal Rise W10 near to Ladbroke Grove, Queens Park and Maida Vale. The school is easily accessible on the Overground (Kensal Rise), Bakerloo (Kensal Green/Queens Park), and on many bus routes such as 18, 23, 52, 70, 228, 295, 316, 452.

Students join for Key Stage 3 years 7-9, GCSE courses in year 10 or 11, and A Level courses in year 12 or 13 as well as retakes over 1 year.

Our main entry points are years 7, 10 and 12. However, we accept students into any year group if vacancies are available.

The school is open for visits and interviews now (with social distancing).
