Mill Hill Belmont Prep School is part of a Foundation dating back to 1807, which also includes our pre-prep, Grimsdell; our senior, Mill Hill School, The Mount, Mill Hill International and our most recent addition, Cobham Hall School, Kent.
We’re only ten miles from central London and yet we have 35 acres of beautiful green space around us, with sports pitches, a nature reserve, woods to explore, and our own cross-country course; all of us feel better for such freedom to breathe.
At Belmont we believe that children thrive when they are happy, engaged and challenged, so we have created a nurturing environment where children are kind and love to learn. They are always prepared to give things a go and their enthusiasm, energy and hard work is remarkable. Our academic curriculum is broad and ambitious and our co-curricular programme exciting. Whatever your child is learning our teachers will inspire and lead them to achieve their very best.
The three most important qualities we expect of all Belmontians are to be kind, try their best and embrace challenge, and we’re proud to say that the children more than live up to this.
Being co-educational means that our pupils are used to different views and approaches, and never feel that they have to follow a particular path because of their gender. Developing social skills in an environment that reflects society, alongside embracing diversity of opinions, leads to a more rounded world view and fuller emotional development.
We find that pupils do best in the nurturing environment of Belmont until the end of Year 8. With the best quality specialist teaching facilities, we prepare them for their move to Mill Hill School at 13+. We help them to develop confidence and self-esteem, and to become more socially assured and academically mature. Because our pupils are not required to sit an entrance exam for Mill Hill, moving on is a stress-free and positive experience for which they are completely ready.
We welcome 50-60 boys and girls into Year 3 to start at Belmont each year. They join us from our pre-prep school Grimsdell, and continue through Belmont up to Year 8 and join our Senior School, Mill Hill in Year 9.
Our main admission point is Year 7 (11+), where we increase the year group size, but occasionally we will admit additional children in other years – these are called ‘chance vacancies’.
