Why choose our Nursery & Pre-Prep

The overall effectiveness of the Early Years’ provision is outstanding. Children make excellent progress in their learning and development and are extremely well prepared for the next stage of their education.

Message from the Head Teacher

North Bridge House Nursery and Pre-Prep are two co-educational day schools for children aged 2 years 9 months to 7 years. Based in Hampstead, North London, we have gained the enviable reputation of nurturing and developing children to their full potential.

Traditionally joining us in the Nursery, pupils are introduced to a safe and friendly environment, where happiness is the key to successful learning.

“The children’s social and emotional development is a major strength of the school, as is their emotional security.” (School Inspection Services, 2016)

We offer a wonderfully rich curriculum, which enables children to become confident learners, and is delivered by committed and inspirational teachers. Pupil progress is carefully monitored to ensure the curriculum is individually tailored to their needs.

Children benefit from a hands-on education at North Bridge House Nursery and Pre-Prep Schools, enjoying regular trips which reinforce classroom learning and provide depth and relevance to their studies. In class, pupils are encouraged to ask questions and learn by making mistakes.

“The children receive particularly good support and encouragement from staff who use praise extremely effectively.” (SIS, 2016)

Both pupils and parents enjoy a range of extra-curricular activities and highly anticipated events throughout the year. Termly excursions, LAMDA lessons and after school clubs are favourites with the children, whilst family and friends enjoy regular plays, concerts, coffee mornings, and annual Sports Days and Summer Fairs.

At North Bridge House Nursery and Pre-Prep Schools, we are very proud of the outstanding academic results our children go on to achieve, following the solid foundation we provide them with in their formative years of education.

We are delighted to welcome you and your children to our warm and caring schools and look forward to you joining our community.
