Head – Pembridge Hall School

Notting Hill

Located in the heart of Notting Hill, Pembridge Hall is a hugely successful and oversubscribed independent day school for girls aged 4-11

Pembridge Hall was founded in 1979 and with its impressive facilities and belief in innovative teaching and learning, it has become one of the most sought-after girls prep schools in London and in the UK.

Following the appointment of Henry Keighley-Elstub to a new headship from August 2022, after 10 years of outstanding service as the Head of Pembridge Hall, the Governors now seek to appoint an inspirational Head who can make a major impact on the continuing development of the school over the next decade.

Pembridge Hall is a member of the Alpha Plus Group. Alpha Plus is a premium private education provider which aims to deliver the gold standard in education. The mission of the Group is to give the best possible start in life to every child in their care.
