The London Nautical School is a foundation school for boys and a coeducational sixth form, located in the Blackfriars area of the London Borough of Lambeth, England. The school is celebrating its 100 years of existence in 2015. In May 2015 the school received a Good judgement from Ofsted.

It retains a strong nautical and maritime tradition with boys and girls experiencing a range of water sports. A large number of pupils are involved with the sea cadets and some continue into both the Royal and Merchant Navy.

The school is renowned for its strong sporting pedigree, especially in football with a large number of former pupils becoming professionals in the UK and in Europe, and four achieving international caps for England schoolboy representative teams in recent years. In addition others have achieved international recognition in Athletics, Swimming, and Boxing.

A very high percentage of pupils embark on sports related degrees after leaving school in the UK and with scholarships to USA universities.
