Welcome to Maple Walk School

Nestled on the outskirts of Roundwood Park in North West London, Maple Walk offers families the unique opportunity to become part of a nurturing and enriching educational community that puts children at its heart. We invite pupils to join us for their primary school years, beginning in one of our wonderful Reception classes aged 4 and then journeying with us through to Year 6. 

In our eco-friendly prep school, we have built a welcoming, child-centred environment that inspires a love of learning in our pupils and a desire to explore, grow and succeed in all parts of their lives. We celebrate nature, from taking our lessons outside and visiting the park to encourage the children to develop their citizenship skills and learn how to fulfil their potential academically, personally and within the community. This approach is driven by an enthusiastic and dedicated staff team, who are committed to giving every child the best possible start. 

With small classes and quality teaching tailored to each pupil, our lessons stretch, challenge and engage children of all abilities and interests. We place a strong focus on literacy and numeracy, with a targeted approach that enables each child to progress at their own level, and we take time to share great literature, music and works of art to help pupils acquire an increased understanding of the world in which they live. As such, our curriculum is broad and stimulating, and includes specialist teaching in many areas, including French, Music, Drama, Dance and Physical Education. 

Working alongside pupils and parents every step of the way, we ensure each child leaves Maple Walk confident, accomplished and ready for the next phase of their education. Our exceptional secondary transfers, and many scholarships, reflect what the pupils achieve and has been recognised by inspectors as ‘Excellent in all areas’ 

Our daily ‘walking bus’ is open to all, meeting at 8:20am in Roundwood Park for those travelling from NW1-9. We support families by welcoming pupils into school from 8am for morning clubs, such as chess, dance and Taekwondo. At the end of each day, we offer extra curricular activities, from gardening to robotics, so that children can enjoy extended provision until 4:45pm or 5pm.

I hope that our website gives you a flavour of what makes Maple Walk such a special place. To find out more and to see the school in action, please contact us via our Admissions and Open Days page to arrange a visit. Our children will be delighted to take you on a behind the scenes tour and tell you all about their school!

We look forward to meeting you soon, 

Claire Murdoch
