Head's Welcome

Welcome to Prospect House

Every child’s potential develops more readily when they feel safe, valued and happy. I am delighted our pupils thrive in the warm atmosphere of Prospect House where humour and laughter go hand in hand with serious study.

Years of teaching have taught me that every child is great at something. At Prospect House we celebrate these strengths, encouraging children to excel. Every small success leads to greater confidence and self-belief.

We have high academic expectations for all of our pupils and place great value on effort, ensuring that they have the necessary tools to succeed.

A notable percentage of our pupils gain scholarships. All go on to prestigious senior schools armed with the enthusiasm and self-confidence which is the hallmark of a Prospect House pupil.

I can honestly say our children love coming to school and I warmly invite you to come and meet me, my team and our pupils.

Please telephone 020 8246 4897 or email registrar@prospecths.org.uk.

Smiling happy children at Prospect House School

Tatler 2019

Tatler Schools Guide 2019

Prospect House featured in Tatler magazine’s Schools Guide 2019.

‘Head Mr Hodge (aka ‘ the Hodgemaster’) is settling well. Parents are beside themselves with praise for the seamless transition and how ‘he has filled his predecessor’s shoes as if they were made to measure’. Although sports facilities could do with a spruce and a school minibus wouldn’t go amiss, according to one parent, our mole was blown away by the sheer amount of IT kit – there are MacBooks in every classroom and each pupil in Year 5 and 6 has their own iPad. Pupils win places at London’s top day schools and there were six academic scholarships last year. This cosy south-west London prep school is ticking all the boxes – genuinely non-selective, plucky staff (special mention to Mr Baker the marvellous music teacher) and no hothouse pressure. Where do we sign up?. (Tatler 2019)

Parent quotes

Feedback from parents

“Prospect House is a school that fosters happiness and respects individuality. After almost five years as a parent here, I have witnessed how the PHS ethos translates beautifully into confident children who enjoy learning and achieve their very best. This school is a gem and I cherish it as much as my two sons.”
Mrs Vitols

“A huge thank you from us, too, for everything you have done for our two girls. From the fantastic teaching (honestly, second to none), outstanding music and the wonderfully nurturing atmosphere, to the brilliant productions and all the trips they’ve enjoyed, the girls have benefitted so much from their time at PHS. We feel so blessed that they’ve had such an amazing
experience of primary school, and I’m not sure who feels more bereft at the prospect of leaving, [our daughter] or us.
Mr and Mrs Beggerow
