Your Child's Journey

From Nursery through to Sixth Form

North Bridge House (NBH) is a family of six independent day schools for boys and girls in North London. With entry points at all of our sites, families benefit from the option of an all-through education, or individually tailored preparation for the next stage of their child’s school career.

  • With Nursery and Prep-Prep sites in West Hampstead and Hampstead, we make our specialist Early Years and KS1 provision convenient and local. At West Hampstead, Nursery, Pre-Reception and Reception are the main intake points, with children joining us between the ages of 2 and 4-years-old. Year 1 and 2 places are also available in limited capacity, preparing children for progression to our high-achieving Prep School in Regent’s Park, where guaranteed entry removes the pressure of 7+ exams.

  • Our Nursery and Pre-Prep Schools in Hampstead are located in two separate Victorian villas, moments around the corner from one another, and provide a natural transition from preschool to Reception (4+). At our Nursery School, we welcome children above the age of 2 into our Nursery classes and those above the age of 3 into our Pre-Reception classes. At the Pre-Prep, places are reserved for our Nursery School graduates, with an additional intake at Reception. Year 1 and 2 places are also available in limited capacity, preparing children for 7+ success. Guaranteed, sought-after entry to our Prep School bypasses the stress of 7+, while we also support entry to other top Prep Schools.

  • At North Bridge House Prep School, we welcome both new and existing pupils at 4+ and 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. We celebrate great success at 11+ and 13+, with pupils gaining entry to UK leading Senior Schools and many of our Prep School graduates progressing their education at North Bridge House.

  • Our Prep School graduates are welcomed to North Bridge House Senior Hampstead upon reference from the headteacher, and external intake at 11+ sees us welcome a new Year 7 cohort. NBH Senior Hampstead primes students for GCSE success, celebrating impressive results and Sixth Form destinations. Our Year 11 graduates either continue on to A-Level at NBH Senior Canonbury, or join a number of other successful Sixth Forms.

  • 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 NBH Senior Canonbury or join a number of other successful Sixth Forms.

  • We prioritise our Prep School graduates for places at North Bridge House Senior Canonbury, while welcoming a brand-new Year 7 cohort at 11+. Year 12 is also a main intake point, with current and external students joining us for A-Level. Students leave us at the end of Year 13, progressing to top Russell Group and Oxbridge universities.

  • Current and external students join Years 7 and 12 at our Senior School & Sixth Form in Canonbury, leaving at the end of Year 13 having completed their A-Levels.
