North Bridge House Canonbury

Canonbury, London

North Bridge House Canonbury is an ‘outstanding’ independent sixth form in Islington, dedicated to understanding teens to maximise A-level success. The sixth form is a leafy retreat just minutes away from Islington’s trendy Upper Street and bridges the gap between school and adulthood. The historic Tudor building lends itself to the mature environment in which students appreciate greater independence.

As part of a smaller sixth form, students take greater responsibility for their learning but with one-to-one support readily available, the unique and contemporary approach sets our students apart, preparing them for the next stages of their life.
