Girls’ Schools Association Review

Pembridge Hall is a non-selective independent girls’ preparatory school set in a beautiful residential square in Notting Hill. Our two sites are situated on the beautiful Pembridge Square and we are firmly rooted in the community of Notting Hill. Musical concerts, weekly school assemblies and parent events are held in our local church in Bayswater and Pembridge girls are fortunate to be able to play in the delightful surroundings of Pembridge Gardens.

The girls themselves and their diversity are at the heart of the school – many speak another language; some are creative; some academic; some sporty; some musical; some technical; some happy to take centre stage and some preferring to think independently. An encompassing commonality is that Pembridge girls are happy. They love school and they love learning; evident in their day-to-day interactions with teachers, parents and each other. This is something that can only be partly comprehended from navigating a website but it is tangible when one is in the building.

The school is part of the Alpha Plus Group: the Gold Standard in educational provision. As an Alpha Plus School, we provide a creative and rigorous curriculum which inspires in our girls a love for learning, enabling them to reach their full potential in a stimulating yet caring environment. We value each individual and our school is a community which promotes disciplined, enquiring minds. This, alongside our excellent pastoral ethos and bespoke parent communication, facilitates the girls’ development into successful learners, critical thinkers and, most importantly, happy individuals who are equipped with the necessary skills for their future role in society. Pembridge prepares its pupils for 11 + examinations and consequently they are offered places at the top day and boarding senior schools in the country.
