Blackheath Preparatory School is an independent prep school for boys and girls aged 3 to 11. It is a quite remarkable school with outstanding facilities, a formidable track record in academic success and dazzling achievements in Music, Sport, Drama and Art. As a parent commented, ‘It is an environment in which pupils thrive in a whirlwind of opportunity and excellence’.

The vision of Blackheath Preparatory School is not just to be a good or very good school but a real beacon of excellence. This means providing an exceptionally good quality of education for every one of the pupils. We wish the children to be happy, thoughtful, confident and responsible. The ethos of the school is purposeful and supportive and the moral values of courtesy, consideration and care are held by all. Our aim is to provide an environment in which pupils can flourish, confident in the adults caring for them.

The culture of the school is one of immediate warmth and friendliness. The pupils are bubbly and focused. In this purposeful and energetic environment, boys and girls grow up to regard learning as fun.
