The staff are all always so kind, patient, and encouraging, which creates a wonderful learning environment. It is because of all of them that I truly enjoy school and learning! They helped make my move to a new country so much smoother.

Sam / Grade 8

testimonial
I have enjoyed all the events that have been organised and I have had the best experience in lessons ever. I have really enjoyed really tough writing tasks in English, learning about the Tsar revolution, really understanding algebra in Maths, working hard and receiving good grades in science, learning more vocab in Mandarin, new sports in P.E and a lot of new skills in my exploration classes.

Halcyon is a great MYP-IB school in the center of London. It offers an extensive selection of subjects aimed to enlight students' passion and curiosity. This comes from the 'learning and applying' method so students can see the utility and the value of what they learn. They do not 'study', they 'learn'.

My daughter is thriving at Halcyon, excellent use of tech for education, but even more importantly, the teachers are superb as is the Director of the school. Halcyon "walks the talk"- committed to igniting the spark to learn from within each student - it sure has in mine! As the mum of a girl in her middle school years, I'm also appreciative of the social culture Halcyon promotes in a myriad of ways. This school's got it right, committed excellence in education and its core values while truly open to innovation.

Halcyon is a truly welcoming MYB-IB co-ed school in central London. Here our child 'learns and applies' (more than studying for tests!) and this is the essence of the IB education we chose for him. The fact that they are innovative and tech advanced is a natural consequence of their wish to engage with the kids of today!
