The Mill Hill School Foundation has added two more schools to its group through a charity merger.
Lyonsdown, an independent preparatory school for girls aged 3 to 11, and Keble Prep, an independent boys’ school for children aged 4 to 13, are now part of the foundation.
With the addition of these two local prep schools, the group now comprises seven schools in total: Grimsdell Mill Hill Pre-Preparatory School, Belmont Mill Hill Preparatory School, Mill Hill School, Mill Hill International and Cobham Hall School in Kent, which joined one year ago.
Antony Spencer, CEO at The Mill Hill School Foundation, said: “Bringing together schools with a shared educational ethos provides a range of educational benefits to pupils, alongside significant operational efficiencies. Having more schools working together for the mutual benefit of all their pupils continues to strengthen us as a Foundation.”
Perran Gill, head at Keble Prep, commented on the strong link that already exists between the schools, with Mill Hill’s current head boy being a former Keble student. “I am sure the new move between the schools can only benefit all of us,” said Gill.
Rittu Hall, head at Lyonsdown, added: “The Foundation is an excellent fit for Lyonsdown and, as an educational charity, it has a very similar educational and pastoral ethos to our own. Being part of a family of schools will help enhance all aspects of our educational provision (academic, sporting, creative).”
The Mill Hill School Foundation now educates over 2,000 pupils.
