Newcomers are often surprised by the size of the site on which Latymer Upper resides, little realising on first glimpse that the School stretches from the gothic gates on King Street in Hammersmith, to Latymer's Boat House on the banks of the River Thames.
A wonderfully eclectic collection of buildings and facilities sit side by side on the campus. Traditional heritage buildings are as much a part of the School as the stunning later additions - the red brick of the imposing 19th century Main Hall sitting comfortably alongside the striking contemporary glass and steel of the Performing Arts Centre.
Exciting buildings help create a dynamic and creative environment in which to learn and the School takes great pride in its facilities. The eagerly awaited new on-site Sports Centre (which includes a 25m swimming pool) opened its doors in March 2016, and is the latest of the School's construction projects. Games take place at Latymer's recently renovated Sports Complex on Wood Lane, which offers 4 rugby/football pitches, 3 cricket squares, a floodlit astroturf for hockey, netball, football and tennis and a modern pavilion and changing rooms.
The impressively equipped science block was completed in 2010 and includes a well-stocked library and resource centre. Art, Music and Drama flourish at the School and are housed in inspiring buildings. The Latymer Arts Centre, with its fabulous 300-seat theatre, music school and art studios, rubs shoulders with the Performing Arts Centre, which overlooks the Piazza and features a 100-seat recital hall and dance/drama studios. Over 800 pupils learn musical instruments and the theatre productions are a wonderful space in which to showcase extraordinary talent. And based as it is in the heart of West London, the city's world class museums, galleries and theatres are but a short tube journey away.
