ABOUT North Bridge House Preparatory School, London, UK

North Bridge House Preparatory School serves children aged 4-13 years, and we believe in the importance of nurturing the individual and developing their strengths. We are part of North Bridge House School, an independent school across five sites in Hampstead and Islington, London, for children aged 2-18 years.

At North Bridge House Prep School, we aim to know, support and inspire every child; to ensure progress is carefully monitored and that every student feels valued and successful.

Academic work and self-discipline are at the centre of school life but a full programme of activities, events and school trips also helps to develop students’ curiosity.

All students are involved in school activities which aim to make them more self-aware and help them acquire the skills needed for adult life. Our continuing objective is to instil the belief that education is a preparation for the future.

The Prep School is an extremely happy community and we guide both students and parents through the senior school process to ensure the students move on to the right school for them.

“North Bridge House Prep School provides an outstanding quality of education for its pupils and successfully meets its aims. As a result of outstanding teaching and an outstanding curriculum, pupils make outstanding progress.”

“The School Provides an outstanding curriculum that is rich and varied for all pupils.”

“Pupils’ engagement and attitudes are excellent and this secures rapid progress in lessons.”
