What The Good Schools Guide says..
On the borders of achingly trendy Notting Hill (Hugh Grant expected to stroll idly by at any minute) and grittier Ladbroke Grove, with tubes on the Hammersmith and City line and cars on the elevated Westway forming the northern horizon,...
What the school says...
It is embedded in our school philosophy that every child should begin and end the day in a happy frame of mind - and NHP is a happy school. In a safe and supportive environment children have the confidence to take intellectual risks in order to stretch themselves academically, to think creatively and to develop a passion for learning.
Kindness and thoughtfulness are defining values of the ethos of the school and we acknowledge and celebrate the qualities and contributions of all our children.
Education is about lighting the fire, not filling the pail and in so doing we enable each child to become his/her own best person. As one parent said 'it is a credit to the school that you are able to see the individual strengths of each child and make them feel special for who they are rather than what they 'should be'. ...Read more
Thank the school
Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.
This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Since September 2003, Mrs Jane Cameron BEd (50s). Married with three grown-up children. She had run the Acorn Nursery in Lansdowne Crescent for 25 years, and parents there encouraged her to translate its ethos of teacher/parent partnership into a prep school. Approachable, dynamic, greatly respected by parents and pupils, ‘terribly hands-on and involved,’ said a parent. ‘Problems get sorted out very quickly because she’ll invite you straight in to see her.’ Another said: ‘She is the backbone of the school. She brings a committed energy and a genuine passion...
Special Education Needs
Notting Hill Prep School has a well established Learning Support Centre that strives to be a centre of excellence. The department is very well resourced and employs a full time Special Needs Co-ordinator. The Learning Centre programmes cater largely for the needs of pupils with mild learning difficulties e.g. dyslexia, dyspraxia and those children experiencing some speech and language difficulties. The whole school is very well resourced in terms of IT equipment and the Learning Centre utilises a wide range of SpLD specific programmes, alongside assessment batteries, visual search and cognitive attainment programmes. All pupils preparing for external examinations are able to partake in Thinking Skills and Study Skills programmes and workshops. Similarly, Gifted and Able pupils are able to access a wide range of software designed to stimulate, engage and challenge children. Perhaps the key to the success of the Learning Centre is that there is no stigma involved in using the facilities, as such a wide range and number of children throughout the school enjoy access to the facilities offered there.
