Hampstead Hill School is a non-selective environment and as such children are not required to sit a competitive assessment to join us. We are a school which prepares children for competitive entry into private day schools in London and in some circumstances elsewhere. This means that children will be introduced to an academic life earlier than in some other schools and that the academic work, particularly in Years 1 and 2, is taught at an accelerated pace in order to enable children to reach the standards required by the schools they are entering for.
Welcome to the Admissions page of Hampstead Hill School.
As a beacon of educational excellence our primary aim is to nurture, educate and prepare your children for a promising future.
We are an inclusive school and children with disabilities and SEN requirements are welcomed. It is always our intention to ensure that all children enjoy their learning experience.
Parents are encouraged to register as early as possible by completing the Admission Form on the school website. An acknowledgment of receipt will be sent by the School Co-ordinator but please note that this is not an automated process so the response may take a few days. The main entry point is September each year and we start the process of offering in the preceding January. There are sometimes occasional places at other points in the year.
We are also delighted to introduce the newest progression in our educational journey, the Hampstead Hill Prep branch.
Hampstead Hill School takes pride in its inclusive and non-selective approach to admissions:
While we warmly welcome children with disabilities and SEN requirements, it is crucial to understand that our focused academic environment might not be suitable for every child, particularly in the older year groups.
Children are encouraged to join Hampstead Hill School in any year group if a place is available. We have formal and non-selective primary entry points at ages 2+, 4+ and 7+. Beyond these stages occasional places may arise within different year groups.
The main admission window commences in September each year, with offers being extended the preceding January. Nevertheless, opportunities might present themselves at various points in the academic year.
(2yrs – 3yrs): This is our most substantial entry point, offering around 90 places annually. There are four separate lists to ensure that children born in the Summer months have an opportunity to join us.
(3yrs – 4yrs): Limited occasional places may become available.
On average, between 10 and 20 places become available annually.
Limited occasional places may arise.
Please see the section below for entry at 7+ into our Prep School.
Limited places do become available across all year groups. Please complete our application form to state your intentions to join Hampstead Hill informing us of the Year Group and desired start date. We offer places on a first-come, first-served basis.
The inclusion of Hampstead Hill’s Prep branch further enriches our commitment to academic excellence. Here is our admissions policy for the Prep Branch:
For all matters related to admissions, please direct your inquiries to our School Co-ordinator, Sian Hoskins, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We extend our gratitude to you for considering Hampstead Hill School. Together, let us embark on this educational journey for your child.
