Merchant Taylors' create new prep through school merger

Prep school for Merchant Taylors' School is result of joining forces with Northwood Prep

Posted by Stephanie Broad | September 14, 2015 | Teaching

Merchant Taylors’ School and Northwood Prep have brought about the creation of Merchant Taylors’ Prep through a merger. The two schools will each retain a distinctive identity, but now offer a ‘through school’ experience to pupils for the first time.

This exciting move offers boys a richer, broader, and more personalised learning experience. Merchant Taylors’ Prep (formerly Northwood Prep) joins St John’s School, Northwood (which is already a member) in the Merchant Taylors’ Educational Trust. 

The schools' locations

The school’s admissions process will continue unchanged in all its essentials. Headmaster Simon Everson said: “This alliance is a natural evolution of the relationship we have long had with Northwood Prep. We have, for many years, enjoyed a shared ethos, shared history, shared community, and shared ambition. Together, we combine an outstanding academic record with a commitment to helping our pupils achieve their full potential.” 

Speaking on behalf of the Merchant Taylors’ Educational Trust, the Master of the Merchant Taylors’ Company, Peregrine Massey said: “We welcome Northwood Prep into the MTET. Northwood Prep will join existing member St John’s School, enabling MTET to offer a truly first-class education to pupils from across the Northwood area'.
