Why choose our Prep School
Message from the Head Teacher
Welcome to North Bridge House Prep School. New to post in January 2019, it is a huge privilege to be leading such a fantastic school with a longstanding reputation for providing a fully rounded education and achieving first-class results.
Our aim is to ensure that the quality of education is consistently outstanding, that the children in our care thrive on a rich and exciting curriculum, which allows them to develop into happy, confident pupils who are fully prepared for entry to some of the country’s best senior schools.
Sitting alongside our academic curriculum, we offer a huge range of extra-curricular activities. With over thirty after-school clubs, there is something to suit everyone; with activities ranging from street dance to chess and song-writing to architecture. The vast majority of our pupils learn a musical instrument and many take part in our great variety of ensembles and choirs. We offer a broad array of sporting opportunities and a number of theatrical productions take place each year. The transferrable skills pupils gain by taking part in these activities – the self-discipline, public speaking, teamwork and greater confidence – are hugely beneficial, both in terms of improved academic performance, and in terms of equipping them with transferable employability skills.
We prepare our pupils for entry to a number of top schools such as Channing, City of London, Highgate, Merchant Taylor’s, Mill Hill, North London Collegiate, South Hampstead, St. Paul’s, UCS, and Westminster, as well as our own high-achieving, mixed-ability secondary schools – in either Hampstead or Canonbury.
I look forward to welcoming you to one of our Open Mornings.
Mr James Stenning
