London independent school opens new £3.1m kindergarten in funding deal

A London independent school has opened a new site with the support of a £3.1m funding package from HSBC UK.

Herne Hill School, located in south east London, has purchased and opened a new kindergarten a three minute walk away from the main site.

The new site means that the school has the room to open a dedicated kindergarten for girls and boys aged 2 and 3 years old, while the Reception Cycle and Key Stage One pupils remain at the former site, giving the younger years a chance to benefit from a specialised learning space.

The funding from HSBC UK has also supported the launch of ‘The Bach’, an additional indoor play area available at the back of the property which will be completed in Spring 2022. With doors opening onto the garden, the space will provide free-flow access to the outdoors, giving the children the freedom to explore, learn and enjoy the natural environment.

Dominik Magyar, director of Herne Hill School, said: “The expansion and refurbishment of the school will allow both pupils and teachers to flourish as we create distinct and unique learning environments to better cater for their specific needs.

“Having banked with HSBC UK since 1993, we want to say thank you to our relationship manager, Mark Oliver, who has supported our ability to provide truly cutting-edge Early Childhood Education with this deal.”

Mark Oliver, relationship manager at HSBC UK, added: “Since its inception in 1976, Herne Hill School has been dedicated to offering the highest standard of education for young children.

“This deal helps ensure these high standards will be maintained as the school grows and expands across two sites.”

Ian Robinson, sector head at HSBC UK, said: “We are delighted to support Herne Hill and the wider sector as institutions continue to invest in their facilities for further growth.

“The UK is a global leader in private education and we look forward to continuing our support as the sector continues to go from strength to strength.”
