Charlotte House Prep School for Girls

Moving to the Area

Moving to the Area

Charlotte House Prep School is located in Rickmansworth, a town in southwest Hertfordshire, England, about 17 miles northwest of central London and inside the perimeter of the M25 motorway. The nearest large town is Watford, about five miles to the east. Rickmansworth is close to the Hillingdon, Middlesex and Buckinghamshire boarders. It is the ideal area for families looking to relocate from London and elsewhere, keen for family life in the countryside but needing to be within commutable distance to the City.

Choosing a new school often goes hand in hand with relocation to a new area.  Our families live in various towns and villages surrounding Rickmansworth such as Amersham, Beaconsfield, Berkhamsted, Bushey, Chalfont St Giles, Chalfont St Peter, Chesham, Chorleywood, Croxley Green, Harefield, Hemel Hempstead, Kings Langley, Pinner, Ruislip and Watford.

Our Registrar is happy to help with your relocation needs as we have close connections with a number of local estate agents in the area.  We can work with you to ensure your daughter is settled into Charlotte House with time scales that fit around your move.

Excellent Transport Links

Rickmansworth has extremely efficient transport links to London with the train journey taking approximately 27 minutes.

Charlotte House is a great choice for parents looking for a smooth transition to the next stage of their daughter’s education.  There are a number of excellent grammar schools in the area, and a wide variety of top senior schools (both day and boarding schools) to choose from.  Please see below  for more information on Charlotte House’s destinations schools.
