Heathside is an independent, happy, friendly and academic school for boarding and day pupils, set in historic buildings in the heart of Hampstead, a few minutes' walk from Hampstead Heath, where the children play every lunchtime.

The school maintains an informal atmosphere while fostering a high level of individual responsibility and self-motivation. We encourage the development of the whole person and, as a result, Heathside is a relaxed and happy place and academic standards are high.

Our approach is sensitive to each child's interests and abilities. We provide a broad curriculum and an exceptional mix of extra-curricular activities. Heathside is a strong and successful community: you will find out more on these pages, and you are most welcome to visit us and experience our school life and teaching for yourselves.
