At Hampstead School we firmly believe that our motto of ‘Learning Together Achieving Together’ underpins our entire ethos. We aim to:

  • Nurture independence and provide the right support enabling students to develop confidence and respect.
  • Actively encourage our students to take responsibility for their own learning, recognising them as individuals with their own unique skills and talents.
  • Provide a diverse and rich environment in which students become independent, thoughtful and proactive about their abilities and responsible for their achievements.
  • Encourage our students to develop enquiring minds and to make the most of the many opportunities we offer in school for them to develop morally, spiritually, culturally and socially.

We are passionate about learning in every sense and match our clear focus on academic excellence with a strong commitment to personal, social and emotional development. The vibrant and energetic student community is encouraged to be tolerant and respectful of others and to become responsible citizens of the wider community. Our specialist status as a Technology College underpins our dynamic approach to teaching and learning.
