We know that happy children thrive academically. With small class sizes, an excellent tutor system and mindfulness and wellbeing programmes built into the curriculum, we pride ourselves on nurturing the whole child and developing individual strengths, so that when girls leave us at 11 or 13, they are happy, well-rounded individuals, academically and socially prepared to tackle the future with confidence. 2021 Finalist – ‘School of the Year for Student Well-being’

Head Teacher’s Philosophy
We prepare for life, not just the next school. Girls are stimulated, supported, and stretched in equal measure and helped to develop the essential skills of creativity, critical thinking, resilience, independence, and confidence that are so important for future success.
The only all-girls’ prep school preparing for both 11+ and 13+ in SW London. Our combination of innovative teaching within a traditional setting, coupled with an exciting enrichment programme stimulates both breadth and depth of learning. Broomwood girls are happy, confident, rounded individuals who are well prepared for future success. Part of the wider Northwood Schools family delivering outstanding education for ages four to 16, which in turn, is part of the wider Dukes Education family.
