Assuming you want an evergreen screen, consider using Prunus varieties - Prunus lusitanica, the Portugal laurel, can be used for hedging or as a single shrub, needs cutting only once a year, usually in spring, to keep it in bounds or to shape, and is highly tolerant of shady conditions, see here https://www.rhs.org.uk/plants/14003/Prunus-lusitanica/Details
There's also Prunus laurocerasus but it has much larger leaves which look very unattractive if, after pruning back, any are left cut in half, they're very noticeable. There are other varieties of this plant (P. laurocerasus rotundifolia for instance) which don't have such large leaves, so they are woth considering.
Note that Prunus varieties are commonly referred to as laurel, or cherry laurel - there are other plants also referred to as 'laurel' - Aucuba japonica and Laurus nobilis (Bay laurel) so make sure you know what you're buying if the plants are not labelled correctly with their botanical names. This link https://www.laurelhedging.com/types-of-laurel-hedging/ provides an explanation of that along with a list of varieties.
