North Bridge House is a co-educational independent day school with six North London sites.
Across all sites, we nurture confidence and academic success, preparing pupils for the future in our warm and friendly environment, which ranges from ages 2 to 18 years.
North Bridge House Nursery and Pre-Preparatory Schools
At the Nursery School, the Nursery (N) and Pre-Reception (P-R) year groups are the main intake points, with children joining us in the term they turn three or in the September following their third birthday. Reception is the oldest year group within the building and from here, pupils automatically filter through to the Pre-Prep School for Years 1 and 2.
When North Bridge House pupils reach the end of Year 2 at the Pre-Prep , they automatically progress to Year 3 at our Prep School, located next to Regent’s Park.
North Bridge House Preparatory School
At North Bridge House Prep School, we welcome both new and existing pupils at 7+, educating pupils according to their individual abilities and aspirations. In preparing for the next stage of their education, pupils can choose to take various routes through the Prep School, and families are carefully advised on the best route and subsequent Senior School for their child.
Route 1: 11+ and Common Entrance
In keeping with tradition, we prepare girls for the 11+ examination and boys for Common Entrance at 13+. We are renowned for the outstanding results our pupils achieve in these external examinations, with the majority gaining entry into their first choice Senior Schools – often with scholarships. These include some of the best Senior Schools in London and the UK, such as North London Collegiate, South Hampstead, Channing, City of London, Westminster, Mill Hill, UCS and St. Paul’s.
North Bridge House Senior Schools and Sixth Form
An increasing number of Prep School pupils choose to progress their education at North Bridge House, where both boys and girls are welcomed, upon reference from the headteacher, to our popular Senior School sites.
We prioritise our Prep School children for places at either North Bridge House Senior Hampstead or North Bridge House Senior Canonbury, depending on their preference, and thus provide the ideal opportunity for students to complete their education without the added pressure of external entrance exams.
Route 2: North Bridge House Senior School (11+)
Both current and external students can join our Senior School in Hampstead at age 11 (Year 7), where they leave at the end of Year 11. With impressive GCSE results, students either continue onto our Sixth Form at North Bridge House Canonbury or join a number of other successful Sixth Forms.
Route 3: North Bridge House Senior Canonbury (11+ and 16+)
Current and external students join Year 7 at our Senior School & Sixth Form in Canonbury, leaving at the end of Year 13 having completed their A-Levels.
