• Bespoke education for boys and girls aged 3 to 7


Welcome to
St John's Wood Pre-Prep School

  • Teachers have high expectations for pupils' engagement and behaviour. They and other adults enjoy a strong rapport with the pupils. As a result, pupils work hard and try their best. - Ofsted 2018
  • They say you learn what an organization is made of during a crisis- COVID demonstrated just how outstanding SJWPP is. - Mr K for his son in Pre-Reception

  • The home learning was created with great care and attention to the level of each child. He missed being at school, but definitely did not miss out on schooling, learning and seeing his friends online. - Mrs P for her Reception boy

  • Virtual school demanded a lot from students, teachers and parents.  But we are delighted that our children continued learning and the return to physical school was seamless.  - Mr & Mrs C for Year 1 brother & sister

  • Their rapid integration and use of video conferencing applications during lockdown, put many large corporations, let alone other private schools, to shame. - Mr G for his son in Pre-Reception

  • The School's work to promote pupils' personal development and welfare is outstanding. Adults encourage pupils to express themselves articulately and with confidence. - Ofsted 2018
  • SJWPP did a brilliant job of putting together a rigorous and broad virtual school curriculum. - Mrs G for a Year 1 boy
  • The school prepares pupils well for the next stage of their education. Pupils reach high standards in English and Mathematics and leave the school having experienced many exciting learning and enrichment activities. - Ofsted 2018
  • Well done to you all for doing such a fantastic job throughout lockdown. We have been so impressed with the structure, learning, organisation and support delivered by SJWPP. Thank you. - Mrs E for her Year 1 daughter

  • Adrian and his team truly set an Amazing standard for adaptation and support for us and our families and cemented for us that this school is the best place for our child. - The B family for their boy in Reception

We are an independent North London pre-preparatory day school for girls and boys aged three to seven.

We specialise in preparing children for the 7+ tests to enter some of London's top-ranking independent schools. Our small size enables us to give every child the individual attention necessary to achieve their full potential.
