Morning Tours, 25 September to 16 October
We are offering school tours at 9am and 10am every Monday and Friday until 23 October.
We'd love to show you around our beautiful site on Haverstock Hill with its well-equipped classrooms, IT rooms, science labs, art, drama and music facilities, and impressive outdoor sports areas. Please come and see for yourself the calm and focused learning atmosphere that our students enjoy.
Each tour group is limited to 4 guests and will be led by a student together with a member of our senior staff team. Due to Covid restrictions, it's essential to book this year. As we have limited capacity, we can only accept 1 adult and 1 (Year 6) child per family. Up to 10 tours will take place each day.
Please note that all open events are subject to Covid safety regulations and may need to be changed or cancelled at short notice.
Virtual Open Evenings, 1 October & 15 October
We are also holding Virtual Open Evenings on Thursday 1 and Thursday 15 October 5.30 – 6.30pm. At this online event hosted on our website, you can meet the teachers, ask any questions and find out why we believe Haverstock is a great school for your child.
Meanwhile, please watch our new video to hear our students explain why they are proud to be part of the Haverstock community, then take a look around our website to find out why Ofsted rate us a Good School, praising our calm and focused atmosphere and the behaviour of our students. We hope your child will join us. Thank you!
Students and parents love our school. Here’s why:
- Our school is a happy and welcoming community, a safe space where your child will have room to grow and explore their passions in life.
- Our class sizes are never above 30 - and are often smaller.
- Our school is the perfect size. With up to 180 children in each year, it’s big enough to offer the widest range of subjects and extras. And it’s small enough to get to know every one of our students!
- Your child will quickly feel at home in our bright and modern building - praised as an outstanding example of school design. And we’re in a great location, just 3 minutes walk from Chalk Farm tube.
- Your child will have access to first-rate IT resources - with over 700 PCs, 65 interactive whiteboards and two Mac suites. Every curriculum area has two fully equipped ICT resource classrooms.
- We like keeping our parents involved. We’ll send you a weekly newsletter, and invite you to join our Parent Ambassadors and to attend our Headteacher surgeries. Your child’s tutor will keep you updated with progress and news.
- Our student and family support teams make sure every child can thrive, and include learning mentors, language and art therapists, and counsellors.
- Our careers programme is the best in Camden. We’ll inspire your child to think about their future with exciting talks, events, mentoring, paid internships and more. We have an unrivalled network of partners bringing extra resources and industry expertise to help stretch our most ambitious students. These include Universal Pictures, Santander, Dropbox, The Roundhouse and many more.
- Since the arrival of our current Headteacher and Chair of Governors in 2017, we’ve made amazing changes at Haverstock, with a clear focus on making sure every child can succeed.
- Your child will be in great company at Haverstock: past students include MPs, award-winning writers and film-makers, England footballers, famous actors and business leaders. We create the leaders of the future: your child could be one too! You can find our Prospectus here.
