London Nautical School, situated in SE1 9NA at 61 Stamford Street in the heart of Blackfriars, Greater London, is a well-established boys' secondary school for ages 11 to 18 and includes a mixed sixth form. Founded in 1915 in response to the Titanic tragedy and subsequent Government inquiry, the school has evolved to become a foundation secondary school. It aims to develop all facets of students' personalities, fostering well-rounded individuals who are not only academically qualified but also secure, happy, and tolerant of differences.

The school's curriculum is enriched by its close associations with the maritime industry, hosting a Sea Cadet Unit and its own fleet of boats on the River Thames. It also offers a range of courses and qualifications that are supported by its Sports College status, awarded in 2003. With a student body of approximately 600, the school's recent Ofsted inspection result was 'Requires improvement'.

The school's notable alumni include professionals such as Reiss Nelson (professional footballer) and Mark Stanhope (retired Royal Navy officer), among others. The school's motto, "Tamesis Suos Ubique Feret," meaning "The Thames shall carry her people everywhere," underscores its lasting legacy and ties to its location along the River Thames.
