Charlotte House Prep School was founded in 1931 by Miss Kitching. Originally known as the Rickmansworth PNEU, the school offered girls an all-round education based on the educational principles devised by Miss Charlotte Mason, the founder member of the PNEU movement. These principles were that education should be a positive extension from home life and that learning should be fun.

More than 8o years later, Charlotte House Prep School is regarded as one of the finest schools in the area; an all-girls’ prep school, offering the very best in Art, Literature, Music and Science, just as Miss Charlotte Mason would have wanted.

Moving into the twenty-first century inevitably means changes occur. Exciting and innovative additions have been made to the curriculum. The fundamental principles of giving girls the very best education is as important today as it ever was. Our school is recognised for its welcoming and friendly atmosphere in which our girls flourish.
