Welcome to Salcombe Preparatory School in Southgate, North London

Founded in 1916, Salcombe is an independent preparatory school for girls and boys between 3 and 11 years of age. Located on two neighbouring sites in Southgate, North London, Salcombe is served by excellent road and rail links which run throughout Enfield, Barnet, Middlesex and Hertfordshire.

It is often said that, next to a happy home, a quality education is the best gift parents can give their child. Clearly, the process of finding the right school for your daughter or son is not one which can be entered into lightly, which is why we trust our website will assist you in getting to know what makes the Salcombe difference. Of course this is just one step in the discernment process. Once you have explored this site, we warmly invite you to see our school in action and to speak to us about how best we may help your child.

To arrange your individual tour of Salcombe, or to book a place on the next Open Morning, please telephone Admissions (T: 020 8441 5356 ext. 3) or email using our online enquiry form.

Tours can be arranged for either the Pre-Preparatory Department (incorporating our Nursery/Pre-School, Reception, Year 1 & Year 2); the Preparatory Department (Year 3 - Year 6); or both.
