School of the Year
South Hampstead has been crowned Independent Girls’ School of the Year 2022.
The Independent Schools of the Year awards celebrate the very best in education and student experience in UK independent schools. At the awards ceremony, judges praised South Hampstead’s ‘unwavering commitment to feminism’ and forward-thinking approach. The independent panel of judges selected the winners from more than 700 nominations this year. Other shortlisted schools, across over 20 categories, included Brighton College, Cheltenham Ladies’ College, Dragon School and St Paul’s.
Mrs Bingham commented: “The award is a tribute to everybody’s hard work – staff, pupils and parents – and a real celebration of everything wonderful about our school. Our sister school Putney High was commended in the same category – it’s brilliant that two Girls’ Day School Trust schools should be celebrated in the 150th year since GDST’s first school opened.”
