The Mill Hill School Foundation Announces More School Mergers

The Mill Hill School Foundation is delighted to announce that two more schools will join 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. With the addition of these two local prep schools, The Foundation now comprises seven schools in total, educating well over 2,000 pupils. One year ago The Foundation announced the addition of Cobham Hall School in Kent into its family of schools.

Antony Spencer, CEO, The Mill Hill School Foundation commented “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.”

“I am excited about the possibilities the merger will bring for our girls, the school and for our staff body. 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); whilst also enabling Lyonsdown to continue to be a happy and family focused school that inspires and enables our girls to love learning and achieve personal success.” Rittu Hall, Head at Lyonsdown.

Perran Gill, Headmaster of Keble Prep said, “I am excited to be taking Keble into the next chapter of its history with its move into The Mill Hill School Foundation. Keble and Mill Hill have strong links and recently I was delighted to learn that Mill Hill School’s current Head Boy is a Keble boy. I am sure that the merger between the schools will benefit all of us.”
