Most hedging plants grow up and out, they have to be clipped to keep them in bounds. Fast growers will need clipping even more often.
I can't think of anything that would go up quickly without spreading sideways.
A fence maybe, with climbers on your side?
An upright form of Ilex Crenata?
Could you add some trellis on your side to give more height for the climbers that nut suggests?
As a hedge, I can only think of things like Pyracantha which will grow against your fence happily.
And the nosy neighbours will get a face full of prickles to keep them away...
There's nothing to stop you erecting your own 'trellis fence' http://www.wickes.co.uk/fence-panel-trellis-square-lattice-6x6ft/invt/541004/ alongside the fence on your side of the boundary - you can then grow clematis, honeysuckle and roses up your own trellis and that will give you loads of privacy
