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

The Pierhead Preparatory Montessori School is an independent day school that is located in Wapping, east London. It opened in 2009 and provides pre-school and childcare from 8.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. When children reach the age of four and a half they attend full time. The school is situated on the first floor of a community and activity centre. There are currently 40 children on roll aged from two to seven years, two of whom are in key stage 1 and five of whom are under three years of age. The school aims to ‘educate the whole child and honour the diversity of each individual’. It uses the national curriculum alongside the Montessori philosophy of education. The proprietor is responsible for governance at the school. The proprietor and Inspection report: The Pier Head Preparatory Montessori School, 9–11 January 2018 Page 8 of 11 headteacher teach full time at the school.

The school was last inspected in February 2015 and was judged to be good in all areas. At the beginning of the inspection, the school did not meet all the requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. Leaders ensured that this was rectified by the end of the inspection.
