“The family atmosphere enables staff to know the pupils well and to support them individually”

Independent Schools Inspectorate March 2020

Your child has their own flight path for success in education and life, and this belief is at the core of our learning philosophy. Each child will experience an individualised learning environment, assembled in a forward-thinking manner. Our well qualified, highly experienced teaching staff are supportive of each child’s progress.

Bales College is a private independent school in London providing a caring and motivating environment which will encourage your child to achieve their best.

The private school is based in London on a quiet, tree-lined campus in Kensal Green W10, between Notting Hill and Queens Park and close to Maida Vale and Ladbroke Grove. The school prides itself on an atmosphere of inclusiveness and positive learning.

We offer a high degree of individual care for your child and our deepest aim is to have him or her secured in every way. We aim to make learning fun and rigorous.

Your child will be welcomed into the school, making the transition into a new community as smooth as possible. Children comment on the family atmosphere at Bales, making them feel comfortable and ready to learn.

We have four core values in our ethos:
  • Respect
  • Humour
  • Energy
  • Perseverance
Respect is for and between individual students and staff, and for the subject and task in hand. Energy, perseverance and humour are brought into our working day, while our motto is Semper Perstare – always persist.
