Our mission is to maintain NHP’s current stand-out position in the marketplace as a local, co-educational prep school providing an education which combines academic rigour with the joy of childhood.
Notting Hill Prep School
To Think. To Thrive.
Academic rigour + the joy of childhood = NHP
An NHP education is founded on these four key principles:
We nurture a set of core NHP Habits of Mind in our pupils. These habits underpin their learning, development and well-being throughout their time with us. They are designed to support a steady and successful transition to senior school and to help craft the leaders of the future.
NHP is an accredited Thinking School which provides the framework for our teaching and learning. Whilst at NHP our first-class teachers study and put into practice the latest pedagogical theory in order to enhance pupil outcomes. We strive for academic excellence, in a vibrant classroom, where pupils are actively engaged in their own learning.
We place great importance on individuality, self-expression, following your passions and muddy knees as the foundation of self-esteem. NHP is a ‘no-fear’ environment where children feel safe and happy and where they are given the time and freedom to grow into themselves.
NHP is an urban school at the heart of a diverse community. A close relationship between parents, school and the local community is a fundamental principle of our structure. We aim to deliver an effective community action programme that serves the needs of local primary school aged children in our immediate neighbourhood.
