Year 9 students take part in Round Square conference in Belfast
Last week, four students from Year 9 at Latymer and the Head of Year, Mrs Kendall, went to Northern Ireland to take part in a Round Square conference, with the theme of ‘Our Changed Environment’. The conference involved around 250 students and teachers from 29 schools in 13 countries, as far flung as Canada, USA, Dubai, Germany, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Peru. Attendees had the opportunity to reflect on the legacy of Northern Ireland’s recent past but also consider how democratic process, conflict resolution and a collaborative approach can work together for positive change.

Situated on the banks of the Thames in West London, Latymer Upper School is one of the country's leading fully co-educational schools for children aged 11 - 18 years. It focuses on both the academic achievement and the personal development of each and every pupil into well-rounded and caring citizens.
Alongside a broad curriculum and dedicated teaching it offers first-class facilities and a plethora of sporting, musical and artistic opportunities beyond the classroom.
Girls and boys joining the school at 11+ from state primary and prep schools embark on an exciting academic programme designed to inspire their intellectual curiosity and achieve their full potential.
We focus on developing both depth and breadth of subject knowledge and understanding as well as learning techniques that will help ensure success at GCSE and A level. The vast majority of pupils then go on to their first choice University both in the UK and abroad.
Latymer Upper School is highly selective and the admissions process is designed to identify children who have the potential to thrive in an environment that fosters academic excellence and independent thinking.
Admission at 11+ is through our own competitive examination in English and Maths and pupils who do well will be invited to return for an interview. Admission to the Sixth Form at 16+ is through interview and is conditional on achieving specified grades at GCSE.
