Indepdendent Education Today, 14.09.15, HMC leading independent Merchant Taylors’ School and Northwood Prep have brought about the creation of Merchant Taylors’ Prep through a merger. The two schools will each retain a distinctive identity, but now offer a ‘through school’ experience to pupils for the first time.
This exciting move offers boys a richer, broader, and more personalised learning experience. Merchant Taylors’ Prep (formerly Northwood Prep) joins St John’s School, Northwood (which is already a member) in the Merchant Taylors’ Educational Trust.
The school’s admissions process will continue unchanged in all its essentials. Headmaster Simon Everson said: “This alliance is a natural evolution of the relationship we have long had with Northwood Prep. We have, for many years, enjoyed a shared ethos, shared history, shared community, and shared ambition. Together, we combine an outstanding academic record with a commitment to helping our pupils achieve their full potential.”
Speaking on behalf of the Merchant Taylors’ Educational Trust, the Master of the Merchant Taylors’ Company, Peregrine Massey said: “We welcome Northwood Prep into the MTET. Northwood Prep will join existing member St John’s School, enabling MTET to offer a truly first-class education to pupils from across the Northwood area".
