Head's Welcome

A warm welcome to North Bridge House Nursery & Pre-Prep West Hampstead.

Situated in the heart of West Hampstead - in a vibrant, exciting and cosmopolitan part of the capital - North Bridge House Nursery and Pre-Prep West Hampstead provides a stimulating yet homely environment, local yet globally influenced. We are a hub for the local community, welcoming children aged 2 – 7 and expertly preparing them for the years ahead through an enhanced Early Years and Key Stage 1 curriculum.

Having opened in September 2020, our West Hampstead campus has been beautifully designed to provide a unique, educational experience, and I have taken personal pride in using natural, sustainable products wherever possible.

From our themed library to our state-of-the-art immersive technology, children can truly embrace creativity and expression in all its forms – something which is crucial to child development in the Early Years.

Led by fully qualified teachers and subject specialists, we adopt a holistic, child centric approach to pupils’ learning and progression here at NBH Nursery and Pre-Prep West Hampstead, and are committed to not just the academic achievement of our pupils, but their all-important personal development too.

We strive to create an organic educational experience for our young children and provide them with as many unique opportunities as we can in this central London location, including growing their own vegetables in our garden and looking after Wilson, our school dog.

In these crucial years of child development, I believe that that a co-ed setting is very important to shaping children’s social and emotional skills and to helping them form and manage relationships. Young children need to be exposed to diversity from an early age so that they can adapt to different environments and settings as they grow up.




In a world that is changing so rapidly and a future where technology will play an increasing role, our children will need to have excellent communication and social skills – again, something that we facilitate through our co-ed environment, as well as our inspiring creative spaces and broad curriculum. Philosophy for Children (P4C) also develops communication skills, teamwork, and resilience, and is another progress-enhancing initiative that we apply to the curriculum. We are preparing our children for the world of work, whatever that may look like in ten years’ time!

North Bridge House Nursery and Pre-Prep West Hampstead is an award-winning school that offers a truly unique educational experience. The school also reflects me as a leader - creative, warm, welcoming, and driven by success - and I do hope you come and see what makes us so special for yourselves.
