Hendon Prep is owned by Cognita, a worldwide group of schools, based in Europe, Latin America and South-East Asia. Each school has its own unique ethos and that is equally true of Hendon Prep.
Our philosophy is to offer an excellent education to every child based on four key pillars: Academic excellence, Character education, Enrichment for every child and Global Citizenship. Hendon Prep is also an extremely happy and caring community where the well-being of pupils and staff are central to everything that we do.
The School has a warm and open culture. All staff work in a collaborative and professional manner, working to create the best possible learning environment for our children and providing excellent support to all parents.
Operationally, the School is led by the Headmaster, Mark Lloyd-Williams, who is ably supported by his Senior Leadership Team consisting of the Bursar, Deputy Head Academic and Deputy Head Pastoral.
Hendon Prep employs approximately 40 people. The staff team consists of Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Learning Support Assistants, Admissions, Administration, Finance, Site Management and Catering.
Hendon Prep has been on its present site since 1964 and enjoys good facilities to enable it to deliver a broad and engaging curriculum. The School has an enviable academic reputation with pupils achieving the highest academic standards that enable them to move to leading independent and selective secondary schools at 11+ and 13+.
