Description

University College School, generally known as UCS, is an independent school charity situated in Hampstead, northwest London, England. The school was founded in 1830 by University College London and inherited many of that institution's progressive and secular views. According to the Good Schools Guide, the school "Achieves impressive exam results with a relaxed atmosphere."UCS consists of the junior and senior school for boys (with a coeducational sixth form) and a coeducational nursery school, Phoenix School, for children aged 3–7.UCS is a member of both the Eton Group of twelve independent schools and the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference and it maintains links with a number of other schools in north and west London, including South Hampstead High School and Westminster Academy. It also has strong ties with Equatorial College School in Uganda.HistoryAccording to H.J.K. Usher (author of An Angel without Wings), giving a detailed history of UCS is close to impossible as many of its early records were lost when the archives of University College London were destroyed during bombing in the Second World War, and because many documents were destroyed or left to rot by a headmaster, C.S. Walton who believed "that tradition began with him".
