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

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)
