Welcome to Bertrum House School.

We are a non-selective family school with a village school atmosphere in the heart of South London. There is a strong community spirit among our children, parents and staff.

We specialise in the education of young children aged 2 to 7 years old. Bertrum House was established in 1984, which gives us many years of experience in guiding children successfully through these very important first five years of school life.

For young children it is especially important that their first big step beyond the secure world of family life is a very positive one. Our staff, chosen for their energy and commitment to children, nurture the children in our care with creativity, humour and affection, in a bright and secure environment. Our aim is to develop and mature the interest of our children in the world around them and to help them to achieve excellent academic results while they grow in social and emotional confidence.

There are real benefits and opportunities to being a big fish in a small pond. Our teachers know every child well and can give them the individual attention and support they need. Children have opportunities to shoulder responsibilities and take a more prominent role than they might have in a larger school. Our Class 2 children are high-profile seniors at the top of their school. As a result, when our children leave to go to their chosen prep schools at the age of seven, they are confident, independent and enthusiastic young learners.

We would be delighted to show you Bertrum House School at work. Please telephone the school office to make an appointment for a personal tour.

I look forward to meeting you.
