About The Henrietta Barnett School
Founded in 1911, The Henrietta Barnett School is a voluntary aided state grammar school for girls.
Dame Henrietta Barnett fought to ensure that women had access to educational opportunities equal to those of men. Her commitment was to provide the highest level of achievement, regardless of social, economic, cultural, ethnic or religious background.
Dame Henrietta Barnett’s legacy continues into the 21st century. After more than one hundred years The Henrietta Barnett School is still situated in the peaceful centre of Hampstead Garden Suburb, in a charming Lutyens-designed Grade II* Listed Building fully complemented by recent modern additions, at the heart of the conservation area.
We hope that Dame Henrietta would recognise the School as it is today – in beautiful and peaceful surroundings, educating girls in a single sex environment, achieving excellent results and university entrance rates and recognised as one of the top girls’ schools in the country.
Over the last hundred years, the School has become a warm, vibrant, lively, exciting place for girls to learn – one that provides a high quality education within a caring and secure environment. We pride ourselves on our academic success and encourage all students to make the most of their gifts and to fulfill their academic potential.
The School has achieved an exemplary local and national reputation for academic excellence. It regularly appears at the top of the league tables..
