SINCLAIR HOUSE SCHOOL
Sinclair House School opened in the heart of Fulham in 1989 as a co-educational Preparatory school with a Montessori Nursery. We provide a strong, well-rounded education that is based on a methodology that promotes academic excellence and develops strong minded children, who are inspired to achieve their full potential.
At Sinclair House School, we provide a warm, nurturing and stimulating environment for our children; an environment where the children feel secure, motivated, engaged and happy.
Our Educational Ethos
Through the teaching of our curriculum and the array of extra-curricular activities available at Sinclair House School, we aim to ‘inspire’ our children. We encourage our children to have the confidence to explore the curiosities from their learning and want them to develop their own passions whilst with us.
Ensuring pupil progress is a high priority to us at Sinclair House School. We view the ‘challenge’ element to learning and development as both an empowering aspect to their school life but also essential to pupil progression. The children are consistently provided with opportunities for growth and success, in addition to the important development of their resilience and autonomy.
Our inspirational and challenging environment leads to a culture of ‘achievement’ across school life and our children leave us proud of their successes, confident in who they are and excited for what they will become.
Admissions at Sinclair House
We are a non-selective school for entry into Reception and places are offered based on date of registration.
Due to the high demand for places, we recommend that you register your child at least 2 years prior to their date of entry to confirm your interest.
Offers for occasional places are made subject to availability and upon successful completion of a taster day, receipt of a child’s most recent school report and a satisfactory confidential report from the child's previous school.

Every child at Sinclair House School has the potential to achieve success. This view is embedded within our teaching and reflected in both our continuous pupil progress analysis and our excellent academic results.

Our recent 2018 cohort of 11+ students achieved a 100% pass rate in their examinations for their first choice of Senior Schools.

WHAT OUR PUPILS SAY
SHS has been an experience I could never forget; one filled with excitement and happiness. I have made amazing friends that have supported me and guided me through thick and thin and have always been their for me. As Miss Carlotta says, “its not goodbye but see you soon”.
Senior School: The Harrodian
I started at Sinclair House School when I was 2 years old and have been here ever since. My journey has been full of laughter, friendship, teamwork and fun. I will always remember all the wonderful staff and all the lovely children here at this school. In the words of Miss Carlotta, I will “see you soon…”
Senior School: Fulham Boys
My time at SHS has been very important to me as this is where I really learnt to speak English as I arrived here at SHS with no English whatsoever.
It is also where I discovered my passions, including art and I also made some really good friends.’
Senior School: Francis Holland
Thank you to Miss Carlotta and all the SHS staff for always caring about every child and always trying to lift the spirits if someone was down. Thank you to Mr Andy and Miss Sasha for helping us through the 11+ exams, meaning we could go to a wonderful secondary school.
Senior School: Kensington Park
Sinclair House School has been my home for two amazing years. I love this place, its students and its teachers. Going to school every day makes me feel incredibly joyful because I know that I will see my wonderful friends and my teacher, Miss Sasha. Sinclair House is my home and the thought of going away makes me really sad but I will never forget the fabulous adventures I had at this school. Thank you, Sinclair House School.
Senior School: More House
SHS is such a great school, full of teachers who are nice and look after you. Our awesome Principal is always nice to us. I really like the house Point system, House Captains, Head Boy and Girl as well as the Chance Cards as we don’t have these in France.
When I think back to how I did not know any English when I arrived, but now I know how to speak English, I would like to say thank you to all the staff.
