School Description

Heathside Preparatory School is an independent boarding school for girls and boys in the London Borough of Camden. The school is registered for up to 600 pupils between the ages of two to 14. There are currently 493 pupils on roll. The school opened a boarding provision in January 2018 for boys and girls aged eight years and over. The school operates across six sites, all of which are in Hampstead, London NW3. The boarding provision is located at the premises used by the upper school at West Heath Road. The lower school is located at 84A Heath Street. The middle school is at 16 New End. Year 5 and 6 pupils attend the premises at The Old White Bear, the synagogue and the Territorial Army Centre in Hampstead. The school makes use of local parks and Hampstead Heath for outdoor space, including for the teaching of physical education. There have been several changes in school leadership since the last full standard inspection. A new head of boarding took up his post in September 2018. In addition, he was appointed as the upper school deputy headteacher in February 2019. A new designated safeguarding lead for the whole school, who is also a co-headteacher of the upper school, started work in September 2018. A new human resources (HR) manager started work in September 2018. A new health and safety manager has recently taken up his post, in March 2019. A new special educational needs coordinator was appointed to the upper school in September 2018. In the upper school, there are some vacant posts for middle leaders. School leaders brought in consultants to help them address the failings identified in the emergency inspections. A consultant was employed to focus on health and safety, and the premises. This consultant works with leaders to oversee this work, and manage the transition of work to the school’s new health and safety manager. Two consultants were engaged to support the school with other areas of weakness. One is now employed by the school as a co-headteacher of the upper school, since March 2019. The other continues to support the school to develop its safeguarding culture, and is a member of the governance and safeguarding advisory board, since March 2019. The proprietor appointed the chair of the governance and safeguarding advisory board in the autumn term 2018. The chair and the proprietor asked for expressions of interest from parents to join the advisory board. The chair and the proprietor interviewed candidates, and appointments were made. The advisory board was formally constituted in March 2019. It consists of 11 members, including the chair and the proprietor. Nine members are parents of pupils who currently attend the school. The board has an advisory function, rather than acting as a conventional governing body. The school does not use any alternative provision.
