Welcome to Prince's Gardens Preparatory School
A Prince's Gardens education equips our children with the confidence and resourcefulness that prepares them to flourish in a fast-changing world.
The rich and exciting curriculum instils high standards and we use the wealth of local resources, including world-class museums and Hyde Park, to inspire a love of learning.
Meet the Headmistress
Our headmistress, Alison Melrose, believes in finding the best in each child so that they leave preparatory school full of confidence and truly prepared for the next stage of their education.
It is so important to build close relationships between home and school. It is our responsibility to know every single child, to support their journey through school and ensure that they flourish and grow.
Prince’s Gardens is an exciting place to be, where no two days are ever the same! In the heart of Kensington, our beautiful school is bursting with activity and learning, inside and out.
At Prince's Gardens, academic excellence is ensured through an engaging, innovative curriculum taught by experts with the intention of inspiring a lifelong love of learning. There is a rigorous programme of tracking and assessments to ensure there is a complete understanding of a pupil's progress. A broad curriculum with specialist staff covering a wide range of subjects, including drama, art, music, sport and languages creates a rich and exciting day for each child. Our STEAM education supports independent learning and creates a dynamic environment where our children are encouraged to think critically and reflect meaningfully on their work.
Dedicated spaces, including the Makerspace, separate science lab and science theory room, a two-acre garden, Hyde park within a five minute walk and Imperial College Sports Centre next door, allow for regular immersive and expressive learning opportunities. Prince's Garden's proximity to London's amazing museums, such as the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and the V&A, provides pupils with huge amounts of inspiration and an opportunity to bring learning to life, using London as their classroom.
An individual approach
Focused feedback from teaching staff to pupils allows for personalised learning and helps guide pupils to become reflective learners. Pupils are also encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning by providing opportunities for independent learning. A home-from-home environment with biophilic features truly promotes the well-being, happiness and academic success of every single one of our bright young learners. Classrooms across the four Victorian townhouses are flooded with light, are designed to create relaxing learning environments, and are fitted with carbon monoxide detectors so we can ensure the best air quality within the school.
