Excellent academic results place us comfortably amongst the country’s top schools, and our pupils leave us for some of the most prestigious universities in the country and worldwide – but there is so much more to an education here than the girls’ headline achievements. We educate with intent in order to deliver an illuminating, innovative and individual experience for every child.
South Hampstead is a forward-looking school, empowering girls to prepare for life and work in a rapidly changing world. We place great emphasis on bringing in the outside world, engaging with the local community and fostering a culture of kindness and curiosity.
Throughout their time here, pupils benefit from a huge range of academic enrichment opportunities – lectures, competitions, charity work, expeditions – that combine to ignite a genuine joy in learning.
The admissions process uses the online ISEB Common Pre Test (sometimes referred to as the Common Entrance Exam). This exam has a specific format and structure, includes a range of predictable questions types and is taken in an online/computer environment.
