Aims and ethos


Igniting Sparks

All girls have an intuitive spark that’s unique to them. Whatever the circumstances, a South Hampstead education always aims to ensure each and every girl finds that spark, lighting the fire to fuel a lifetime’s achievement.

Our motto ‘mehr licht’ (more light) really sums up the school: warm, enlightening, brilliant.
