Hi Everyone. We are considering prep schools and are struggling to find any recent discussions on two particular schools. Does anybody have any views or experience of Salcombe Prep (in Southgate) or Norfolk House School (in Muswell Hill). Any experience or anything anybody may have heard will be much appreciated.

NH is a bit of a Marmite school - some love it and say is small and nurturing, others find it cramped. It is very much a crammer for the 11+ but I'd assume everyone is tutored too. Southgate and MH aren't that close - don't forget to factor in the commute in school run traffic.

Yes I second the point about distance- we are in Bounds Green and I drove ds to school at Vita et Pax for his nursery year so only 2&a half days a week and ecen that got very tiresome!

I have 3 children at Salcombe. The main downside I think is the size - it's tiny and they don't have much in the way of facilities. It's also very academic from a young age. But on the whole I'm really happy with it.
