Welcome from the Headmaster
At Hereward House we believe passionately in the value of a Prep School education for boys between the ages of 4-13. In partnership with our immensely supportive families, we are helping the boys to develop at a crucial, formative stage of their lives.
The years spent at Hereward House will be the time when the boys will cultivate their values, and the personal attention they receive aims to produce well-rounded, kind, academically curious boys. They'll acquire the self-confidence and soft skills needed in a rapidly changing world alongside a real sense of community. Together with solid intellectual foundations Hereward House Boys leave with a strong sense of empathy, humility and compassion.
Hereward House is one of the leading schools nationally in terms of senior school destinations and academic results. However, we are especially proud of the fact that we are a mixed ability school, and that the boys enjoy a very broad, progressive curriculum in an environment which seeks to protect them from the academic pressures that can be so evident in London. We want our boys to look back on their early school days as ones filled with enjoyment and opportunity.
Do please have a look at our website but the best way to appreciate the ethos of the school is to visit when the boys are here during the course of the school day. Rather than have formal Open Days, we much prefer potential parents to visit the school on a normal working school day. We have the advantage of being a small, intimate school, which allows us to appreciate your son and to enable every single boy to fulfill his potential, in whatever area that may be. Above all we give each individual boy the most valuable things any adult can provide, time, attention and understanding.
