A Flying Start at Hawkesdown House School

This west London school offers pupils a firm foundation through thoughtful and thorough teaching.

Hawkesdown House School is an independent preparatory school and nursery in leafy Kensington that offers an outstanding educational environment for girls and boys aged 2 to 11. Children are prepared for 7+, 8+ and 11+ examinations. The ethos and aims of the school embrace high academic standards, creative endeavour and individual attention. ‘Endeavour, Courage, Truth’, reflects the aspirations for the children; that they grow into kind, capable and considerate adults.

Hawkesdown House School is a safe place where people are kind, considerate and capable, where a child can start their school life happily and make early friends with confidence. It is a place of fun, purpose and success, providing an excellent education, inspiring and challenging the mind and the imagination. In a world that is changing at an accelerated rate, the school concentrates on knowing each child and understanding what is important to every family. Parents are fiercely loyal to this philosophy; it is borne out in the excellent results and in the open, thoughtful and happy children.

Hawkesdown offers a broad, balanced curriculum, with excellent teaching, to encourage a love of knowledge and independent thinking. Sport, music and drama are all carefully integrated into the school week to develop a wide mix of talents and interests, and for a happy and varied day.

Pastoral care at the School is outstanding. The whole ethos of the School is for kindness, individual attention and very close links with parents.

Pupils go on to King’s College Junior, St. Paul’s Junior, Sussex House, Summer Fields, Westminster Under, Westminster Cathedral Choir School, and a range of other schools amongst the independent London day schools and elsewhere.
