Welcome to Newcastle Prep School
Situated in Jesmond, Newcastle Preparatory School is the only independent preparatory school in the Tyneside area which specialises in the education of children from 3 - 11 years of age.
We provide a warm, caring environment in which children experience success, both academic and extra-curricular, whilst growing in confidence and self-esteem. We ensure that NPS children receive the best start in life enabling them to thrive in Senior School and beyond.
For those who do not know NPS we hope this site will give you a brief glimpse of life at our school. However, no website can convey a true impression and we would love to welcome you on a visit when you can meet our fantastic children and staff with our Head Teacher Margaret Coates.
Regulatory and Compliance Inspection report
Our recent Regulatory and Compliance Inspection was another success with NPS meeting every standard and therefore being fully compliant - find out more here.
Children at NPS are confident, eager learners because they are nurtured and encouraged to succeed in every way.
