Word From The Head

From Alex Matthews, Head


Blackheath Prep is a happy and thriving co-educational prep school for children aged 3 to 11. We are located in an idyllic setting on the edge of the heath close to Blackheath Village and our five-acre site offers superb specialist facilities, large playgrounds, forest school areas and extensive playing fields.

At Blackheath Prep, we seek to offer an education without boundaries and strive to ensure that every child shines and reaches their full potential. We unlock confidence, excitement, fresh thinking and a sense of fun and adventure in the full belief there are no limits to what each child can achieve.

We are committed to achieving academic excellence within an ethos of strong pastoral care and supported by a rich and varied co-curricular programme. We aim to help children develop the courage to believe in themselves, to take risks, to try new things, to be bold, brave, resilient and tenacious. We encourage everyone to learn from mistakes and rise to challenges.

Community is at the heart of our school. We believe strongly that children thrive when they are happy and nurtured and so it is no surprise that visitors comment on our warm atmosphere and our culture of kindness.

It is a great privilege and responsibility to be involved in educating and shaping the lives of young people.

Our teachers work hard to ensure that life for the children within our care is stimulating, exciting and joyful. We aim to spark children’s natural curiosity for the world, leading them to discover, to wonder and to dare to go further. And we aim to give children the freedom to grow, to explore and to exceed their own expectations and ours.

It is a great privilege and responsibility to be involved in educating and shaping the lives of young people. At Blackheath Prep, we take our role very seriously. If you are considering the school, I hope this website will give you a flavour of our ethos and what we stand for.

Regular open mornings are held throughout the term and you are encouraged to visit and experience our warm welcome at first hand. Thank you for your interest and I look forward to meeting you in the future.
