Local Talk

Which private preps are excellent and commutable from N1 (Canonbury)? Keen to hear about St Andrew's Montessori / St Christopher's (Hamstead) or anybody that has left N1 for better schools?

DD1 18 months. Not overwhelmed by the local state options in Islington and figure private prep is worth the money to prepare DD1 for 7+ or 11+ (depending on the prep).

Have ruled out Gower and the Children's House based on local knowledge / very unhappy parents pulling their children out.

Do any N1 / N5 Mums do the rat-race to Hampstead Preps? Or Highgate PrePrep (so oversubscribed that keen to hear from anybody that has got in!). I have heard good things about St Andrew's Montessori (an option for pre-prep) and St Christopher in Hampstead. Or is it time to consider elsewhere - St Albans / Herts for the best of State and Private?

We are looking to move to a bigger place and are coming round to the fact we may have to kiss goodbye to our beloved Upper Street!!
