Blackheath Prep is an outstanding school located in South East London. We offer a rich and broad curriculum across the academic subjects, sport and the arts, in addition to superb pastoral care and excellent preparation for the senior school application process. Our superb facilities include a Science lab, Library and Gym, 2.5 acre sports field and three Forest schools, providing ample space for our pupils to roam, discover and have mini-adventures. The report from our latest ISI Inspection is available to read here. Discover more about Blackheath Prep and the outstanding education we offer at our Wednesday morning tours during term-time, and our next Family Open Day on Saturday 18 May 2024.


At Blackheath Prep our pupils benefit from an outstanding education and are well-equipped for the next stage of their education once they leave us in Year 6. As part of the Eltham College family of schools, our pupils benefit from a priority places process for those who select Eltham College as their choice of senior school. For our families who wish to explore other school choices, we offer superb preparation for the 11+ process and our pupils secure excellent offers from the leading independent senior schools in London.

Family Open days

Next open day

Saturday 18 May 2024

In addition to our Family Open Days held in the Autumn and Summer terms, we hold regular tours of the school throughout the year. These take place on Wednesday mornings during term time and give prospective parents an opportunity to see the school in action, as well as our facilities and extensive grounds.


We do lots of fun lessons like DT – I made a flowerpot and a butterfly in DT! I really enjoy planting seeds and I like learning new things. My favourite subject is Science because it’s really interesting. My three favourite things about school are DT, Science and Art.
