Upper School Facilities

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

Children in the Upper School have their classrooms in the restored Grade 1 St. Stephen’s which stands proudly in the upper section of the site.  They also have full use of all areas of this majestic building during the school day, to include what must be one of the largest school halls in London. These 5 to 8 year olds have three outdoor playgrounds that they are able to use during their break times, a paved  one, the central garden with all its equipment and a two-tier grass meadow for imaginative and creative play.

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.
