Academic Results

Our Nursery and Pre-Prep Schools are particularly high-achieving.

Overall standards of reading, writing and Maths are all well above the national average for Early Years and Key Stage 1. Children naturally progress from Nursery to Pre-Prep at the end of Reception (age 5), where the curriculum is built entirely around Key Stage 1 and prepares children for our highly successful Prep School without the added pressure of 7+ entrance exams.

To track pupil progress in a stress-free environment, we use the progress test series provided by the leading provider of formative assessments to schools in the UK, GL Assessment. This determines an age-standardised score (SAS) for pupils, taking into account each pupil’s age in years and months, and indicating how NBH pupils are performing relative to the national average.

*NBH Nursery & Pre-Prep West Hampstead opened in September 2020 and so data is taken from our sister site in Hampstead.
