ABOUT Hendon Preparatory School, Hendon, UK
Hendon Prep is a small independent Day School and Preschool in north London for girls and boys from 3 -11 years old.
They are an inclusive, friendly, family-feel school which nurtures excellence in a diverse and inclusive culture. They promote and celebrate wellbeing alongside academic attainment.
The curriculum from Preschool to Year 6 is enhanced to inspire a love of learning, with French, Sports and Music specialists enriching of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework, with the addition of specialist Art and DT from Reception. Spanish and Reasoning are added in Key Stage 1, and an afternoon of student chosen Enrichment activities for Key Stage 2, along with Drama.
At Hendon Prep they see and develop the potential in every child. Their children engage enthusiastically with knowledge, embrace new ideas and are intellectually stimulated and extended beyond their age, resulting in excellent academic outcomes and confident independent learners.
“Drawing pupils from a wide range of cultural backgrounds, abilities and languages, the school is highly successful in moulding them into a single community and in preparing them for entrance to the selective school of their choice, often with scholarship places.”
“Teachers are enthusiastic about their subjects and succeed in communicating this to their pupils. Lessons are well planned and teachers have a clear understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each pupil; this allows them to provide the appropriate level of challenge or support to ensure that pupils make good progress.”

We are proud of the progress of all our leavers. We are not an academically selective school, yet we continue to secure places at highly selective senior schools.
