American Academy in Brno

With our unique blend of American-style curriculum and project-based learning, we teach students a wide variety of subjects, and more importantly, teach them how to think creatively and use what they know. Our students learn skills they will use in their future workplaces: collaborating, making presentations, analysing data, working with people from all over the world, problem solving, and thinking outside the box.

Our goal is to create a safe environment for all of our students where they will be able to fully develop their individual talents and potentials. We believe that each student is unique, learns differently, and deserves an individual approach from teachers and educators.

All faculty, staff, and students work hard to create a family atmosphere at school, where we respect each other as friends, partners, and collaborators. As our students will be open to numerous opportunities throughout the world once they have graduated, we endeavor to prepare them for every possibility by fostering a spirit of curiosity and open-mindedness.

It provides instruction in both Czech and English, with extended English language classes. Square caters to the individual needs of each student, while allowing each student to express his or her own unique talents. Our pioneering “Tree Rings” educational methodology begins with what is seen and experienced, then expands to encompass more general and abstract concepts. This provides each child a smooth flow in the acquisition of knowledge from novice to master. Central to our vision is the crafting of an environment that nurtures each student‘s distinctiveness while fostering important skills such as self-awareness, intrinsic motivation, adaptability, and resilience. At the heart of our curriculum is the mission to teach each child the art of learning: identifying aspirations, embracing errors as stepping stones, and charting his or her own academic journey.

 

By maintaining smaller class sizes—capped at 22 students—we guarantee personalised attention and forge deep, meaningful bonds with each child. Furthermore, our curriculum builds proficiency in both Czech and English language communication, ensuring that our graduates are poised to follow diverse personal and professional paths.

IEP Group

IEP’s mission is that all students participate in a stimulating, rich and challenging curriculum that provides them with opportunities to reach their unique potential and through this new partnership with Dukes Education we will be even better equipped to make that mission a reality.

We started our adventure in Spain at the end of 2016, with the partial acquisition of 3 schools in the Valencian community; subsequently, IEP was founded in May 2018 with the objective of becoming a major provider within the Spanish private schools market. Despite the COVID pandemic, we have managed to grow to a group of 7 schools,  employing 450 teachers and educating 4,800 students from 1 to 18 years old. This partnership will enable us to begin the next phase of our development, still under the IEP name and IEP has the honour of being the first schools group in Spain to join the Dukes Education family.

IEP and Dukes have a common set of values, vision and purpose, and we are excited by the tremendous potential this agreement offers IEP staff and students as we benefit from Dukes world-class people, reputation and infrastructure. Students at IEP will benefit from Dukes international exchange and summer camp opportunities, as well as different sport competitions and other exciting and engaging extra-curricular activities. IEP students will also benefit from more world-class career coaching, internship and university counselling, and will be able to confidently apply to any university world-wide through the Dukes platforms.

Notting Hill Prep School

I feel very privileged to be the Head of this wonderful school. NHP has quickly built a reputation as one of the leading prep schools in central London thanks to a combination of dynamic teaching, excellent academic results and a firm commitment to protect the joy of childhood.

 

I strongly believe that children thrive when they feel safe and happy. At NHP (affectionately re-named by the children as No Happier Place) we work hard to create a nurturing environment where our pupils’ views are respected and encouraged. Kindness and courtesy are key themes and we focus on the children’s ability to co-operate, to think collaboratively and to show consideration for the needs of others.

We are proud of our reputation as an advanced accredited Thinking School and through our Learning Habits and school values, we ensure that NHP pupils develop key life skills alongside academic ones. The children leave us with a problem-solving attitude and a toolkit on which to draw. They are confident, articulate, resourceful, resilient, independent and more than ready to face the next stage of their education.

It is a given that our pupils will move on to some of the leading schools in the country, but what is important for us is that they move on to the right school for them. That is the one which will allow them to flourish and build on the strong foundations that they have established here at NHP.

I hope that you have time to browse our website and see more of what makes our school so special and what makes an NHP pupil stand out from the crowd. Of course, the best way to get a feel for us is to come and visit and I look forward to welcoming you to our ‘hidden gem’ in the heart of Notting Hill.

About
Notting Hill Prep School

As you enter the doors of NHP, there is something uniquely special about the place. The school’s ethos of ‘academic rigour + the joy of childhood’ is embedded within everything it does – a balancing act that is fiercely protected by the staff and celebrated by the parents.

Whilst there is a real sense of academic focus as the children are challenged by specialist subject teaching, there is also joy to be had in learning and their experiences of school life.

The only advanced accredited prep Thinking School currently in England, the NHP approach to learning enables teachers, pupils and parents to have a deep understanding of how to learn and think effectively to prepare them for future life. Pupils are nurtured and encouraged to have a go, to celebrate marvellous mistakes and to think creatively and outside the box.A hub of creativity, music and the performing arts are the cornerstones of NHP life.  With music, drama and P4C being taught from Reception to Year 8, the children develop their self-confidence, collaborate creatively and reflect on work that they and their peers have produced.

Pastoral Care is intertwined across every aspect of school life. We have a comprehensive well-being programme which timetables pastoral activities into the school day to safeguard the children’s mental health and preserve the joy of childhood. The school has built strong links with some of the UK’s top senior schools both in London and further afield and places great emphasis on finding the right next school where each child will thrive and flourish.

Community Links

A core founding pillar of NHP is that we will continually strive to strengthen the close relationship between the school and the diverse local community in which we are situated.
