Salcombe Preparatory School is a renowned co-educational day school, catering to approximately 200 pupils from ages 3 to 11, located in the affluent district of Southgate, North London. Established in 1916 by the Deakin sisters, the school has a notable history, transitioning from Hornsey to Devon during the war and returning to London in 1918. The school's original campus at Chase Side, Southgate, currently shares space with a second site at Grade II listed Green Road in Oakwood, providing facilities for its lower years. Asquith Court Group acquired the school in 1990, and since then, it has been under Cognita's ownership. The school's motto, "Sapere aude," translates to "Dare to Know," and it encourages the pursuit of knowledge among its students. The current head is Miss Nicola Sands.
