North Bridge House Senior Canonbury was founded in 1939. This is a private day school for children aged 11 to 18.

The school management organizes all educational activities in accordance with the latest research by British scientists. North Bridge House Senior Canonbury's work with the Teenage Sleep Foundation and Dr. Paul Kelly of Oxford University led to the introduction of a later start time for students. Professor Sarah-Jane Blakemore and adolescent mental health researcher Johnny Benjamin constantly interact with the school, helping educators and parents get to know teens better.

Most teachers have degrees and work experience at universities. Their efforts in the school environment create warm, friendly relations both between students and within the teaching staff.

The World of Labor meeting is held annually, at which students get the opportunity to ask specialists from different industries. These activities are not perceived as extracurricular, rather they are an integral part of the overall educational process.
