The London Nautical School rejects exam focused schooling and chooses some radical strategies to engage pupils. In English and Science pupils can chose what to study, and which teacher to work with, from a range of proposals put forward by the teachers.

The school has also rejected ‘setting’ – where pupils of different perceived ability are taught separately.
