Lower School Facilities

Pupils at Hampstead Hill School benefit from an unusually interesting and attractive site in the heart of leafy Hampstead.

Lower School children in Early Years, Pre-Reception and Reception have playtimes during the day in the main garden where there is a variety of equipment, and in the two-tier meadow where they can play imaginatively.

Some Lower school classrooms are situated in the original school hall adjacent to St. Stephen’s, while others are set in the grounds.

Lower school children also have access to St. Stephen’s for movement and exercise classes and the Reception Year music, singing and dance classes are all  held there. This hall is also a wonderful venue for Reception Year termly shows.

We are also very fortunate to be able to use swimming and indoor sports facilities at the Royal Free  Recreation Centre, which is at the bottom of our road, for children in Reception  Year and above.

The school benefits from being only a few minutes walk from all the wonders of Hampstead Heath with its various playgrounds as well as the historic and most interesting Kenwood Estate. We are also privileged to  have special access to the South End Green Peace Garden and the Belsize Nature Reserve.

The school is very well situated for public transport and is next door to a major London hospital with an excellent Paediatric Emergency Department.  We have plenty of outside storage space for prams, scooters and bicycles.
