Independent inspection report

Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

School Open Events

Due to UK wide school closures in the light of the coronavirus outbreak, sadly all planned open events are cancelled until further notice.

When schools reopen, we will update our school pages with new dates and opportunities to visit schools once again.

In the meantime, please contact schools directly with any questions or concerns you might have around admissions or open events.

Stay safe and well.

School Description

Hendon Preparatory School is an independent preparatory school for boys and girls aged between two and thirteen years old, situated in Hendon in North West London. The school has an Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for children up to three years old and for three to five-year-old children. The report on provision for the under three-year-old children is published separately. Girls leave the school at the age of eleven, reflecting the entry requirements of senior selective girls’ schools in the area, and most of the boys stay on until the age of thirteen. The school was founded in 1873 and during the 1950’s moved to accommodation which had previously been a hotel. It became one of a group of schools owned by Cognita Ltd in 2004. The provision is overseen by an Education Executive on behalf of Cognita. The school has 185 pupils on roll, of whom one is under three years old, 14 boys and 16 girls are 3 to 5 years old, 80 boys and 58 girls are between the ages of 5 and 11 years old, and the school has 16 boys between the ages of 11 and 14. Pupils come from families with diverse cultural backgrounds from many parts of the world, living and working in London. The aims of the school are to create a secure and nurturing learning environment where pupils receive a high quality education and achieve very well, so that they gain entry into sought-after selective schools.
