North Bridge House Prep School to Open New Reception Class in September 2022
Successful north London school group, North Bridge House has announced a new entry point to its prestigious Prep School at the edge of Regent’s Park. From September 2022, the independent co-ed day school will admit children from age 4, building on its current ‘Outstanding’ provision for 7 to 13-year-olds with Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes.
“This development will bring us in line with other Prep Schools in the local area, where it’s commonplace for a Pre-Prep / 4+ provision to be included in the educational offer. More and more it seems, understandably, that parents we welcome are looking for the same thing – particularly those with siblings,” says North Bridge House Prep School Headteacher, Mr. James Stenning.
North Bridge House Prep School – renowned for its impressive track record of 11+ and 13+ exam results – will continue to prepare children for entry to the UK’s top senior schools, while adopting an Early Years and Key Stage 1 curriculum which mirrors that of the school group’s existing Pre-Prep model, where 58% of Reception pupils perform in the top 4% of the country for literacy.
Families looking for a Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 place will now have three North Bridge House sites to choose from – in Hampstead, West Hampstead and Regent’s Park.
The new EYFS and KS1 provision in Regent’s Park will extend on NBH Prep School’s specialist, individualised curriculum, maintaining small class sizes (approx. 15-20) and incorporating everything from Philosophy and Forest School to French, Drama, Music and Sport. Children will benefit from a rich and varied academic and extra-curricular programme from the outset of their education, progressing to a knowledge-rich curriculum which features Politics, Economics, Film Studies and Art History.
To accommodate this new 4+ entry point, NBH Prep School is re-designing its Lower Prep building to include two Reception classrooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, which will open out onto a large, secure rooftop play area. Like all current pupils, children will also benefit from playtime over Regent’s Park.
A popular choice among north London parents who want the option of the UK’s leading destination schools, or a stress-free all-through education to age 18 which does not compromise on academic excellence (internal students are prioritised for places at the high-achieving NBH Senior Schools), North Bridge House Prep School presents an increasingly attractive offer for those with young children looking for bespoke preparation for every path to success.
