South Hampstead aims to ensure that all children who are accepted into the school receive a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum, regardless of any disability or personal and educational difficulties they encounter. The Senior School has a Learning Needs Co-ordinator. Every member of staff is made aware of pupils’ educational needs and difficulties. A variety of teaching methods are employed with these in mind. However, the school is not resourced to offer specialist assessment nor specialist teaching to girls with special educational needs.

“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.
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.
There is real joy in learning at South Hampstead.
Our success is underpinned by a solid bedrock of pastoral care and personal development opportunities. There are over 140 different co-curricular clubs and activities to choose from. We are well known for our excellence in the arts and pupils participate in dozens of different sporting activities, many at team and club level, in state-of-the-art sporting facilities.
To get the best sense of what a South Hampstead education can offer, we warmly invite you to one of our Open Days to meet our pupils and staff. We look forward to welcoming you.
Mrs Victoria Bingham, MA (Oxon)
