Founded in 1916, Salcombe Preparatory School has been providing a unique educational journey which prides itself in building firm foundations for future learning.

Situated in North London, Salcombe Preparatory School is one of the leading independent schools in the area which provides an all-round education. Whilst nurturing the traditional academic subjects, Salcombe is also a forward thinking school; embracing new opportunities within teaching and learning; and a willingness to progress and to innovate to ensure the school meets the needs of our future global citizens. Children discover their talents; develop their strengths and each has an opportunity to excel.

The key to our success, is enabling each child to follow their own passion for learning; to build self confidence in order to become increasingly independent and to develop their curiosity and sense of adventure. You just need to look at our Alumni to see where an education at Salcombe can take you. Our former pupils have made a name for themselves in such diverse fields as Science, where Professor Lord Robert Winston made such amazing advances, and Business, where Karren Brady is the Small Business Ambassador to the Government, via the world of Sport, with Maro Itoje who is the current superstar of the England Rugby Team, to the Media, with Ricky Boletto who presents Newsround.

Salcombe Preparatory School children have a strong sense of belonging and pride in their school – they are dynamic, grounded and confident. They work hard to achieve beyond expectations and have great fun doing so. Children are well prepared for the challenges of Senior School and 11+ results are excellent for both boys and girls.

Salcombe Preparatory School is a unique place with a real sense of community and we are proud of our exceptional school; where we recognise and celebrate the individual – an independent school for independent learners.

We look forward to welcoming you to Salcombe for a visit – so you can experience the magic for yourselves.
