Welcome to The Upper School
Upper School Hours
8.50am – 3.40pm Monday to Friday (Three terms per year)
(Care available from 7.45am – 5.30pm)
Although the Upper School runs on a three term basis, from 8.50am to 3.40pm, our extended hours service of 7.45am – 5.30pm is available to all pupils. During all half- term and holiday periods we operate a Holiday Scheme for the Upper School children. There is a separate daily charge for this as the children go out on many varied and interesting outings.
Hampstead Hill’s Pre-Preparatory Branch (Upper School) provides a sound academic education for 5+ to 7+ year old boys and girls, with emphasis on preparation for competitive entrance examinations to Preparatory and Junior Public Schools where the age on entry is 7+ or over. Pupils are accepted into Year 1 on the understanding that they remain until they are 7+ years of age.
The aim of the school curriculum is to enable pupils to achieve the necessary academic standards while at the same time fully developing their individual personalities and talents. Children leave the school with the self-confidence that will enable them to enjoy and benefit fully from the new and exciting environment that awaits them at their next School.
One full term’s notice is required in writing before a pupil is withdrawn or fees will be charged in lieu.
