Prep School

Co-educational preparatory and nursery school for children aged 2-11

Welcome to St James Preparatory & Nursery School


“Unique. A relaxed, yet focused atmosphere unlike any we have encountered elsewhere.” The Good Schools Guide.

We are a coeducational prep school and nursery for children aged 2-11 in West Kensington, London.

Our aim is simple. We want our children to arrive at school with a song in their heart and leave fizzing with what they have learned. We are ambitious for our pupils. This means we want them to have fun as they learn, because we know happy children succeed.

We would be delighted to welcome you to our school – please contact our friendly admissions team to arrange a 1:1 tour, join an Open Morning or simply discover more about our wonderful school. You can also take a look at our nine short videos which capture something of the special buzz of St James Prep.

We look forward to hearing from you.
