Moving to London from US this summer, with DS starting Yr 7 in Sept. Looking for alternative private or public school with artistic or open/free slant. Any suggestions welcome.

All state schools have to follow the National Curriculum or close. You may also find it tricky to get into a State school of your choice (a public school inthe UK is not a state school). I would also suggest you learn a bit about UK schools as the curriculum and language of education is quite different from the US.

A little outside London, but is a boarding school. Bedales probably is what you are looking for.

Happy Easter! Thank you for your comments. Anyone with any experience of Maharishi schools?

You might try a Montessori? Fairly certain there is a Montessori primary in London.
