North Bridge House Senior School Hampstead, London, UK


North Bridge House Senior School Hampstead serves children aged 11-16 and we passionately believe in celebrating every child as an individual. We are part of North Bridge House School, an independent school across five sites in Hampstead and Islington, London, for children aged 2-18 years.

In a special family atmosphere, we develop enquiring minds and engender wonderment for learning in our pupils. We challenge our pupils on a daily basis and help each child to exceed their academic potential, as well encouraging their talents in a wide range of extra-curricular and enrichment activities.

Our aim is to educate the whole child and to provide a secure and nurturing environment where students learn tolerance, consideration and respect for others. To all this, we add our strong sense of community and an aspirational ethos that mean our pupils actively motivate each other to succeed in every area of their education.

“North Bridge House Senior School provides a good quality of education which enables students to make good and often outstanding progress in their learning.”

“Highly effective leadership underpins the good quality of teaching and assessment, together with continuous monitoring of students’ progress, to ensure that the school’s aims are met in practice.”

“Students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and their behaviour are outstanding.”

“The school provides an outstanding curriculum which makes a strong contribution to students’ academic and personal development.”
