ABOUT NORTH BRIDGE HOUSE PREPARATORY SCHOOL, LONDON, UK
North Bridge House Preparatory School serves children aged 7-13 and we believe in the importance of nurturing the individual and developing their strengths. We are part of North Bridge House School, an independent school across five sites in Hampstead and Islington, London, for children aged 2-18 years.
At North Bridge House Prep School we aim to know, support and inspire every pupil; to ensure progress is carefully monitored and that every pupil feels valued and successful.
Academic work and self-discipline are at the centre of school life but a full programme of activities, events and school trips also help to develop pupils’ curiosity. All pupils are involved in school activities which aim to make them more self-aware and help them acquire the skills needed for adult life. Our continuing objective is to instil the belief that education is a preparation for the future.
The Prep School is an extremely happy community and we guide both pupils and parents through the senior school process to ensure the pupils move on to the right school for them.
