Description:
Hampstead School is a large multi-ethnic comprehensive school in the London borough of Camden. The school is one of the oldest in the borough, founded in 1862. It is a specialist Technology College and has been recognised by Investors in People.

The school has approximately 1,300 students between the ages of 11 and 19 attending the Lower School (Year 7 through to Year 11) and the Sixth Form College (Year 12 and Year 13).

History

The school was founded as a Haberdasher Aske's school, but became a secondary modern in 1961 before turning comprehensive. The old school's Latin motto Is est emendo; tendo quod macula iocus notitia (to correct faults, give direction and impart knowledge) can still be seen on the face of the main building.

Academic Standards

The school was awarded a 'gold star' accolade by Ofsted in June 2001, which placed it within the top 6% of schools in the country. This was despite half of its 1,275 pupils speaking English as a second language and 10 per cent being refugees. Compared with similar schools, Hampstead was rated well above average for exam results and given an 'A' grade., Liz Lightfoot, The Daily Telegraph, 19 June 2001

Some aspects of the school's performance according to Ofsted dipped after the 2005 inspection. In particular, attendance and GCSE results fell sharply in 2006. However, according to Ofsted this dip was corrected by 2008.
