Welcome from the Headmaster

I am delighted to welcome you to Alpha Preparatory School’s website. Although the whole world has gone through some challenging and different times, it is a privilege to be leading the School at an exciting time in Alpha’s history: 2020 was not only the year of a global pandemic but it also marked Alpha's 125th anniversary.

Our school community continues to thrive, and as part of the ethos of the School, we aim to nurture, encourage and challenge each child to grow as a learner and a responsible citizen.

We are a small, friendly school with a long history of helping our children to develop the personal, social and academic skills that will underpin their success in life.

Our belief at Alpha, is that the School and the parent body should work in partnership with each other. Parents and children will often see me around the School, including at the start and end of the School day as I greet or say farewell to the children.

If you do have any queries or would like to arrange a tour of the School to see us in action, please contact our school office on 020 8427 1471 or email us on

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Alpha, a place where your child will be immersed in a stimulating, inspiring and supporting environment, a place where we help the young women and men of the coming generation to find their own unique place in the world.
