About Knightsbridge School
Knightsbridge School is an independent, mainstream, mixed preparatory school for children aged three to thirteen. Located in central London, it has approximately 398 students.
Knightsbridge School opened in September 2006, housed in two mansions, and has since redone much of its décor. There are now well-equipped classrooms, a science laboratory, an ICT suite, an in-house catered dining hall, a performing arts studio, music rooms, a library and an art studio.
Vision and values
The preparatory school aims to establish a love of learning in each student by creating a positive and stimulating environment. Teachers strive to provide a holistic, balanced and varied curriculum so each pupil can reach their full academic potential. The values they promote are: mutual respect, independent thinking, positive attitudes and participation.
Knightsbridge School concentrates on classical education, with an emphasis on literacy and reasoning, as well as encouraging children to take part in extra-curricular activities. It offers an extensive programme, from judo and fencing to ballet and cookery. A modern language, either Italian, Spanish, Mandarin or Greek, must also be taken alongside French lessons.
“Knightsbridge School is highly successful in meeting all of its aims. The achievements of its pupils, including those of children in the EYFS, are excellent. Pupils of all abilities, including those with SEND or EAL and the more able, make rapid progress. Many older pupils are successful in gaining entry to highly selective senior schools.”
