Welcome

South Hampstead High School is a uniquely cosmopolitan community: as academic as it is creative, as liberal as it is rigorous, as illustrious as it is industrious.

At SHHS, we seek to nurture individual potential, and to enable our girls to achieve the headiest of ambitions. We encourage a love of learning – our school is unashamedly intellectual – and of much else too. We excel at sport, drama and music and our extra-curricular programme offers something for everyone.

Our study trips at home and abroad are inspiring and enjoyable, and there are many opportunities for leadership and to contribute to our charity events. As we are located in the heart of London’s cultural life, we draw on those artistic, musical, and theatrical traditions to offer exceptional opportunities for creative development. Our staff are passionate about their subjects and strive to ensure that our pupils flourish and excel, all in a warm and supportive milieu. A South Hampstead education is liberating and fun, and it prepares girls for the wider world.

The best way of seeing what makes South Hampstead High School so remarkable is to come and meet our impressive girls and our inspiring teachers.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Headmistress
