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, we provide a warm, nurturing and stimulating environment for our children; an environment where the children feel secure, motivated, engaged and happy.
Please watch our school video below which will give you an insight into what school life is like at Sinclair House.
We hope it helps you to get a sense of what makes our SHS family so special, until you can come and see for yourself.
We very much look forward to hearing from you and meeting you and your children.
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
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.
Places are offered based on date of registration.
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.
An Inspiring Curriculum
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.
We prepare our children for the 11+ examinations and our children successfully gain places at a whole range of excellent secondary schools.
Our recent 2020 cohort of 11+ students achieved a 100% pass rate in their examinations for their first choice of Senior Schools.
WHAT OUR PUPILS SAY
"My time at Sinclair House School has been packed with incredible memories that I will treasure in my heart forever.
I have made lifelong, magnificent friends and will miss them very much when I go off to senior. I will always remember the good times I had over the years at SHS."
Senior School: Ibstock School
SHS is an experience I will never forget, filled with excitement and joy. My journey has been filled with friendship, teamwork and lots of fun. Thanks to Ms. Francesca, Mr. Andy and Ms. Sasha, I successfully made it through the 11+ but I don’t like to think of it as the end - it’s just the next chapter. In the words of Ms. Carlotta, ‘it’s not goodbye, it’s see you soon.’ ”
Senior School: Kings, Wimbledon
"SHS has been my home for six magnificent years and I am devastated that I have to leave it. It has been an experience I will never forget: I have made lifelong friends and accomplished amazing achievements.SHS has guided me through my first chapter of life and I couldn’t be more thankful to the staff and children for being with me all the way. My teachers, Miss Francesca and Mr.Andy, are funny, kind and unfailingly wonderful people. SHS has taught me to always follow my dreams, always be myself, but most of all to always express myself.
Thank you SHS for everything."
"I first arrived at SHS at the start of Year 2. I met lots of friends and learnt lots of subjects. I like how at the end of the year there is always a school trip and everyone learns, explores and makes new friends.
The teachers have been very helpful and kind."
Senior School: Fulham Boys
"Sinclair House school has been one of the best times in my life. I hoped it would never end. I have learned and achieved so much, which I never thought I could do. When I came, I had no English but the teachers and my classmates helped me. I learned to be confident and even got to win an art competition. I will never forget my amazing memories at SHS."
