The School Office deals with all applications to Grimsdell Mill Hill Pre-Preparatory School. There are two main points of entry into the School: 3+ (Nursery) and 4+ (Reception). Occasionally there are places available in other years - these are called 'chance vacancies' and if you are interested in this point of entry please contact the Administrator in the School Office - telephone 0208 959 6884 or email

When choosing a school we strongly advise all parents and prospective pupils to pay a personal visit to the School at one of our regular open mornings so that they can see the School's facilities and meet the members of staff and current pupils.

Grimsdell got its name from the Grimsdell family who donated a large part of their family estate to help create the school in 1995. Mr Grimsdell was an Old Millhillian and made glasses for a living. His fellowship certificate can be found on display on the main staircase of the school.
