Welcome from the Headmistress

A truly outstanding education should open doors, minds and hearts. That is exactly what we aim to do at South Hampstead High School, one of the UK's most successful schools. We welcome girls aged 4 to 18 from across London. We pride ourselves on enabling them not just to succeed, but to thrive - intellectually and personally.

Our pupils are all cherished individuals but with a great sense of loyalty to our happy and cosmopolitan community at the heart of London's cultural life. South Hampstead is a school which looks outwards and prepares girls for life and work in an increasingly inter-connected world. That is why we place great emphasis on our community work, on bringing in the outside world, and on fostering a culture of tolerance and respect.

Our academic results place us comfortably amongst the country's leading schools, and our pupils leave us for some of the most prestigious universities in the country and worldwide. Throughout their time here, they benefit from a huge range of academic enrichment opportunities - visits, lectures, competitions and discussion groups. There is real joy in learning at South Hampstead.

Our success is underpinned by outstanding pastoral care and opportunities for personal development. There are around 100 different extra-curricular clubs and activities to choose from. We are well known for our excellence in Music and other Creative and Performing Arts. We offer over 30 different sports, many at team and club level, and state of the art sporting facilities.

To find out more about what a South Hampstead education could offer your daughter, we encourage you to attend an Open Event at our Senior School or Junior School to see our pupils and staff in action for yourselves.
