Welcome from the Director of Sixth Form

The Sixth Form at South Hampstead lights up a world of new opportunities, both intellectual and personal. It’s why so many students describe the final two years at South Hampstead as their very best. Here, you’ll receive outstanding teaching, achieve exceptional A Level results, and quickly feel at home in a place that’s buzzing with activity and fun.

In lessons, we aim to draw the girls out of their comfort zone and encourage a spirit of enquiry and debate. Our enrichment programme provides a host of opportunities to spark the imagination, to engage with new people and places and to develop new skills – a speaker series that would do credit to a top university, a PE programme to rival the most dynamic gym, and a calendar peppered with international trips.

We draw students out of their comfort zones and encourage a spirit of enquiry and debate.

Girls will have chances to produce plays, run societies, edit the school magazine and get involved in charitable endeavours, as well as step forward for the traditional Head Girl team and captaincy roles. Our comprehensive Futures Programme, focusing on higher education and careers, helps to put all our leavers on their individual paths to success.

The hopes and ambitions of our young women are central to everything we do. Our Sixth Form is not just made for them; it’s made by them, too. Do get in touch if you would like to find out more:
