About University College School

University College School, generally known as UCS, is an independent day school in Frognal, northwest London, England. The school was founded in 1830 by University College London and inherited many of that institution’s progressive and secular views.

The UCS Hampstead Foundation is composed of four main entities:

  • “The UCS Pre-Prep” (previously known as “The Phoenix”), currently co-educational (though from September 2017 new entry has been for boys only) for ages 4 to 7 on the Finchley Road site. This was acquired by UCS in 2003.
  • “The Junior Branch”, for boys aged 7 to 11 on the Holly Hill site in the heart of Hampstead.
  • “The Senior School”, for boys aged 11 to 16 and co-educational for ages 16 to 18 on the Frognal site, which is the largest school site. The main campus and the Great Hall are noted examples of Edwardian architecture. Inside the hall is a Walker pipe organ, used for school concerts, professional recordings and other festivities.
  • “The Playing Fields” are situated in Ranulf Road in West Hampstead.

UCS is a member of the Eton Group of twelve independent schools, the Haileybury Group of 26 independent schools, and the Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference. It is well known for its established Bursary Programme and Music Scholarships, as well as its outreach work with a number of other schools in North and West London, including Westminster Academy, the London Academy of Excellence and UCL Academy. It also has strong ties with the Equatorial College School in Uganda, and charitable work in Romania and India.
