Recently named the Independent Girls’ School of the Year 2022 by the Independent Schools of the Year awards, South Hampstead High School is a highly successful, academically selective day school of 950 pupils, welcoming girls aged 4 to 18. Located in leafy Hampstead, with the buzz of central London’s cultural life close at hand, pupils at South Hampstead prosper in a stimulating, challenging and fun environment. Established in 1876, it is one of the earliest members of the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST) and pupils go on to become prize-winning authors, ground-breaking scientists, passionate campaigners, successful entrepreneurs, distinguished lawyers, and trailblazing creatives.

South Hampstead is a thriving community that looks to its future with considerable confidence and ambition.  The GDST now seeks an inspiring and dynamic leader who will bring energy and experience to the post of Head at South Hampstead and build on the School’s existing platform of success. This is an exciting opportunity to shape the future of one of the UK’s pre-eminent girls’ schools and develop its position at the forefront of independent education. As part of the GDST, South Hampstead is supported by, and is integral to, a skilled network of schools and it benefits from the expertise and resources of the Trust which allows space for innovation and development.  

The successful candidate will be an outstanding educator with the ambition, drive and enthusiasm to build on South Hampstead’s significant existing strengths. Warm and approachable in style, the next Head will motivate and inspire a talented staff body and offer proven strengths in developing high-performing teams. A passionate believer in girls’ education, the ideal candidate will be a first-class ambassador for the School, with the vision to inspire the South Hampstead community.
