Independent Inspection Report

Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

School Description

Salcombe Preparatory School is a co-educational independent school situated in Southgate, London. The school was founded in 1916 and occupies two neighbouring sites which house the Prep and the Pre-Prep schools. In 2009, the school established a Preschool class and now has pupils aged from three to 11 years. There are currently approximately 250 pupils taught in 17 classes. The Early Years Foundation Stage comprises one Preschool class and two Reception classes for approximately 50 children, who receive the 15 hour Early Years Grant. There is a rich variety of nationalities. The school provides wraparound care before and after school on both sites with a variety of club and activities organised by the school. The school was last inspected by the Schools Inspection Service in May 2016 and received an ‘Outstanding in All Areas’ rating. The present owners, Cognita Schools, purchased the school in 2005 and the current Headteacher took up post in September 2013. The school aims ‘to inspire in all pupils a love of learning by offering the best possible education, meaningful engagement in learning, participation in a wide range of activities and opportunities to develop the attitudes and values which will prepare our young people to lead happy, stimulating, useful and fulfilled lives’.
