Welcome to Haverstock School

At the moment you will be thinking carefully about very important decisions relating to your future: what to do next year, what courses to take and where to study or apply for alternative courses or apprenticeships.

We are pleased that you are considering an application to Haverstock, and look forward to discussing your options with you and giving your support and guidance at our Open Evening on November 27th 2014.

The Sixth Form Open Evening on November 27th is a very important event for you. Here you will have the opportunity to discuss subject options with teachers, as well as getting careers advice, guidance about university admissions and information about all the enrichment activities we offer at Haverstock.

It is from these discussions that you will make your options choices. Your options will be based on your predicted grades so it is important that you demonstrate your potential in class and in your mock exams. If you are offered a place at Haverstock, this offer is dependent on you gaining the required grades in August.

We are keen to support you through this exciting and important transition. If we can assist you in any way, please do not hesitate to speak to us.

About us

Haverstock School offers an excellent education to your child. I have a very clear vision for our future development and, significant ongoing achievements on all fronts maintains and strengthen the first rate education we provide for our rich and diverse community,

I have been Head for the past 11 years and during that time we have transformed Haverstock. We are a confident and ambitious school with a very determined agenda.

As a parent myself, I appreciate that choosing the appropriate secondary school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will have to make on his or her behalf. This prospectus outlines what we have to offer, details our achievements and sets out our aspirations for the future. However, I encourage you to visit us during the day to see the many opportunities on offer which are designed to ensure that your child's full potential will be achieved.

My aims for the school are based on the highest expectations of attendance, work, behaviour, high academic standards, and success promoted through excellent teaching, independent learning and an ordered stimulating environment. We are committed to working in partnership with parents to ensure they are well informed and centrally involved in the life of the school.


At Haverstock we are unequivocally committed to ensuring that all students are safe, happy and secure whilst in our care. Through clear procedures and practice we are duty-bound to promoting the welfare of students and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
This means that we have a Child Protection and Safeguarding policy and clear processes in place which we refer to in our policy. All staff (including supply staff, volunteers and governors) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures
Haverstock School is an inclusive, comprehensive, community school that actively promotes the holistic education of every young person in our community. We do this through our curriculum, our pastoral systems and our enrichment programme in order to provide for the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our students. Our community is a richly diverse one in every sense; ethnically, culturally and academically. This is strength of Haverstock and it brings many opportunities to our learners. We acknowledge that part of our role is to develop young people’s ability to make informed moral decisions and to recognise the difference between right and wrong. Moreover we actively promote certain moral values; these include democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. These are British values, but we believe they are also universal values and they run throughout our curriculum assembly programme, extended curriculum, tutorials and is made explicit in our values, attitudes and behaviours.

This is achieved in the classroom, in tutor time and social activities and through their student council and all have the option to stand for these posts. Students have the opportunity to attend extra-curricular activities in all subject areas of the school and there is a wide and varied programme of visiting speakers, workshops and trips. Haverstock School also encourages its students to be citizens who are active and aware of their local, national and global communities from intergenerational programmes with our older neighbours to building a school in Senegal. We have regular fundraising and awareness raising events and encourage our students to have an understanding sense of global, national and local community, social and political issues.
