Arnold House Expands

27 November 2020

Exciting Announcement!

The Governing Body of Arnold House School in St John’s Wood is delighted to announce some
extremely exciting news regarding the future of the School. In September 2021, Arnold House will
expand their early years provision by launching a Reception class (4+) and a Pre-Reception class
(3+), thus becoming an Independent School for boys aged 3 through to 13.
In order to facilitate this expansion, the Governors have acquired the freehold ownership of The
Huxley Building, 38 Marlborough Place, just a few minutes’ walk from the existing school site in
Loudoun Road.

The Huxley Building (named after renowned biologist and educator Thomas Henry Huxley who lived
there in the late 1800s) is a Victorian property dating from c.1840 which retains many features that
are synonymous with Arnold House’s existing school buildings. Having been previously utilised as a
teacher training school, it is comprised of spacious classrooms, offices, a beautiful drawing room
leading onto a mature garden and all the required facilities needed for early years education.
Not since the acquisition of the School’s Activity Centre (Canons Park) has Arnold House made such
a pivotal investment to improve the facilities for boys of all ages within the school.

In September 2021, The Huxley Building will be open its doors to the Pre-Reception and Reception
year groups. However, planning is also underway for many of the exciting spaces within The Huxley
Building that will enhance the learning facilities for Arnold House boys in all year groups with a
focus on innovation and future skills.
