Towards 2026 and beyond

Support Us

At South Hampstead High School we aim to equip our pupils for life – to develop the leaders, the thinkers, the creators of tomorrow. Our masterplan, ‘Towards 150’ sets out some of these ambitions as we look towards our sesquicentennial anniversary – at the centre is the need to provide the best possible facilities to support a dynamic learning environment, and the desire to extend our education to anyone with ability and potential, regardless of their wealth.

Whether you are a parent, pupil, alumna, teacher or friend of South Hampstead, you are considered to be a valuable, life-long member of our community. By investing in our initiatives you will provide real opportunities for all, you will enrich the lives of every girl at the school and, by becoming part of their future, we hope you will enrich your own.

Project Zero

Leading the way to become a carbon neutral school

Environmental sustainability has moved centre stage this year. Carbon offsetting, plastic recycling, composting, the replacement of paper towels, and LED lighting all require significant investment beyond our everyday budget.
