Chepstow House School

19 Pembridge Villas, London W11 3EP

Profile: Chepstow House is a new co-educational pre-preparatory school for children from Reception to Year 2. It opened in January 2010, aiming to offer high quality, independent education, maintaining the existing traditions and standards of all schools within the Alpha Plus Group. It was setup to address oversubscription at the other Alpha Plus Group schools in Notting Hill, Pembridge Hall and Wetherby Pre-prep, while offering parents a co-educational alternative. Due to its recent foundation, the schools has not been inspected yet, but parents can take its association with the Alpha Plus Group as a good indicator of its quality. In addition, Chepstow House Headteacher Angela Barr spent 11 years as Head of Lower School at Pembridge Hall prior to joining, so you can expect the school to be managed in a very similar way.

Admissions: Chepstow House operated a non-selective admissions policy similar to Pembridge Hall and Wetherby:

Pupils may be registered for entry any time after birth. A registration form needs to be completed and sent to the school, with the £100 registration fee. The school has an inclusive policy and all children are accepted at registration. There are 5 allocated definite places for each month. Once those places are filled, any child registering born in the month that is full is put on the waiting list. Places are given with a view to having two places left for children born at the end of the month“.

Exit Results: With the Reception class starting in 2010, there are no exit results for Chepstow House yet, but children have the option to feed directly into Pembridge Hall or Wetherby Prep at 7+.
