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 wraparound care. Our facilities include a purpose-built 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. At Blackheath Prep our pupils benefit from a rich and broad education from Nursery upwards, and when they leave us in Year 6 they are well-equipped for the 11+ process and the next stage of their education. Each year our pupils secure outstanding senior school and scholarship offers from the leading independent and grammar schools in London and Kent. Additionally, as part of the Eltham College Family of Schools, our pupils also benefit from a priority application process for those who wish to select Eltham College as their choice of senior school. 


We currently have places available in Year 4 and 5 for families wishing to join our outstanding Prep. Find out how to apply for a place here. Applications for places in our Nursery, the usual entry point for pupils joining Blackheath Prep, are now open for January and September 2025 entry. You can apply online here. If you would like to find out more about Blackheath Prep in person, you are warmly invited to attend one of our Wednesday morning tours or Open Days. Our next Family Open Day is on Saturday 21 September 2024.

Saturday 21 September 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 certain 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 ‚Äď 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‚Äôs really interesting. My three favourite things about school are DT, Science and Art.
