What the school says...

King Alfred School is an informal independent day school situated on the edge of Hampstead Heath in London. Students range from Reception age through to Sixth Form. A vibrant, friendly community where the emphasis, academically and socially, is discovering and maximising the potential of each child.

Unique amongst independent schools in its progressive roots, an absence of formality and petty rules allows us to treat young people as the individuals they are. By emphasising the development of a safe, non-competitive and relaxed community, it claims both outstanding examination results and, perhaps more importantly, happy and confident students.

Embracing the inspirational surroundings of the Hampstead Heath fringes, this vibrant day-school offers a broad curriculum, an extensive extra-curricular and enrichment programme, and strives to remove the formal barriers found in many other educational establishments. Students dress casually and staff, known to all pupils by their first names, place tremendous value on the creation of friendly one to one working relationships.

Whether aged 4 or 18, children are put first, and this is a school that sets itself apart from comparable schools.
