Sparking ideas: Our teaching and learning approach

South Hampstead students love to learn. There is a spirit of enquiry that animates every lesson: questions asked, answers found and debates set in motion. The store we set by the power of ideas is evident in the quality of the conversation, both inside and outside the classroom.

Our teaching is known for its rigour and its passion. In-depth subject knowledge and expertise are givens for all our teachers, but equally important is an innate ability to inspire the very best from each student, both as scholars and as individuals. With a colourful mosaic of enrichment opportunities available – academic societies, national competitions, leadership roles, independent learning projects, incredible speakers and exciting trips – every girl has the freedom to direct her learning and to flourish.

Outstanding examination results and entrance to top universities, in the UK and beyond, are just part of a South Hampstead education. Our approach, ambitious and creative, aims to instil an intellectual and a moral purpose to whatever journeys our pupils choose to pursue. Pupils with special educational needs receive every possible support. Our ambition each year is that our pupils leave us as assured, adaptable, inspired individuals, ready to make their mark on the world and lead happy, successful lives.
