Blackheath Prep is an outstanding, co-educational prep school for children aged 3 to 11. Our five-acre site offers superb specialist facilities, and plenty of space to provide our pupils with the freedom to learn and play in our large playgrounds, forest school areas and 2.5 acre playing field.   

Our seven core values of kindness, curiosity, freedom, ambition, courage, community and joy, inform all that we do and how we behave as a school community. They guide our approach to teaching and learning, to pastoral care and to wellbeing, and our engagement with those around us. 

We nurture our pupils both academically and pastorally, enabling them to be happy, confident and inquisitive children. Through a broad range of subjects, inspiring teaching and plenty of exciting activities, we ensure that our school is a really fun place to be where curiosity is stimulated, and a love of learning is encouraged. 

Above all, we are a kind, friendly and joyful school.  

Blackheath Prep is now part of the Eltham College Family of Schools. The merger provides an exciting opportunity to cement the schools’ already close ties through a more formal partnership. From our existing positions of strength, our larger family will be in an excellent position to prepare for the future and to ensure our schools continue to thrive.  Read more about our new family of schools.
