North Bridge House School is an independent school located in London for 2½ to 18 year olds. The school has five different locations for different age groups. The Nursery School, located in Hampstead on Fitzjohn's Avenue, is for 2½ - 5 year olds. The Pre-Preparatory School is just around the corner on Netherhall Gardens and is for 5 - 7 year olds, and the Preparatory School is situated on Gloucester Avenue near Regent's Park and is for 7 - 13 year olds. North Bridge House has two Senior School campuses, one in Hampstead for 11- to 16-year-olds and one in Canonbury, Islington for 13 - 18 year olds. The Good Schools Guide called it "A gentle school."[1]

The current headmistress of the Nursery and Pre-Prep Schools is Mrs Joanna Hockley. The current headmaster of the Prep School is Mr Brodie Bibby. The headmistress of the Senior School in Hampstead is Mrs Georgina Masefield. The headmaster of the Senior School and Sixth Form in Canonbury is Mr Jonathan Taylor. The school is owned and operated by the Cognita group.

North Bridge House Senior, originally located on Gloucester Avenue with the Prep School, merged with The Royal School, Hampstead in 2012 after Cognita invested £3.5m to open a dedicated senior school campus for NBH. The investments funded a refurbishment of the entire school including the creation of additional subject specialist teaching facilities. In December 2012 Cognita announced plans to invest £1.7 million in a new Sports Hall for North Bridge House Senior School in Hampstead, which was completed in 2014.[2]

The fifth North Bridge House campus, NBH Senior School & Sixth Form Canonbury opened in September 2014 and prepares students for university entry.

The Japanese School of London previously occupied the Camden North Bridge House building.[3]
