Eaton Square Senior and Sixth To Transform into LPS Mayfair and LPS Sixth: The Future of Personalised Education

Last Updated on : 9th November 2023

Eaton Square Senior School and Eaton Square Sixth Form are proud to announce their transition into London Park School Mayfair (LPS Mayfair) and London Park School Sixth (LPS Sixth), set to take effect from September 2024. This transformative step underscores the school’s commitment to personal attention, agility, creativity, experiential learning and problem-solving, aligning perfectly with the vision of the London Park Schools (LPS) group and marks a shift away from its prep school roots, highlighting its focus on senior school expertise.

London Park Schools represents a fresh perspective on secondary education, where students are at the heart of everything. Their mantra, “smaller schools for bigger thinking,” emphasises a shift from uniformity to individuality, strong relationships, collaboration, adaptability, and inclusivity, creating an environment that nurtures “bigger thinking.” In a rapidly changing world, agility is crucial, and LPS emphasises the need for adaptability in students, encouraging them to explore, question, and engage in more comprehensive and critical thinking and to learn by ‘doing’. As smaller schools, they provide the flexibility to adjust educational strategies quickly, offering the best practices from around the world and meeting the dynamic needs of students and the workforce of the future.

Each London Park School is a place where students are known by name, not just as numbers on a list. Each student’s unique journey, strengths, and needs are recognised, allowing for personalised support and guidance.

The London Park Schools’ leadership team, including Group Principal Suzie Longstaff, LPS Clapham Head Susan Brooks, and Adrian Rainbow, Head of LPS Mayfair and LPS Sixth, along with Head of Sixth Form, Nathan Mountford, pioneers a new model of collaborative education whereby each school adheres to the same manifesto, but tailors its application to the specific needs of its own student body whilst working synergistically to provide a supportive group structure, thereby offering the best of both worlds.

The transition to LPS Mayfair and LPS Sixth will be fully implemented by September 2024, including the name change and a phased introduction of a new uniform.  It represents a statement of beliefs, values, and an innovative approach to education. The new names emphasise the schools’ commonality and community with other members of the LPS group, fostering inclusion, collaboration, and a seamless, shared journey to the sixth form across both schools.

Dr. Rainbow has already brought significant changes to the curriculum, fostering innovation, creativity, and improved learning outcomes. With backgrounds in elite sport, both Suzie Longstaff and Adrian Rainbow understand the value of a warm coaching culture that enables students to excel and develop essential life skills such as resilience, pride, and teamwork.

“We’re excited about this transformation as it underlines our commitment to providing the highest standards of education while offering additional resources and expertise. London Park School Mayfair and Sixth will continue to focus on student well-being, academic excellence, and a broad base of skills, just as Eaton Square Senior and Sixth already do,” said Dr. Adrian Rainbow, Head of Eaton Square Senior and Sixth (LPS Mayfair and LPS Sixth from 2024).

Suzie Longstaff, Principal of London Park Schools, concludes, “We aim to nurture thoughtful, articulate, and globally aware individuals, and this exciting transition is a testament to our unwavering dedication to empowering students for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.”
