University College School, generally known as UCS, is an independent school charity situated in northwest London.

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 moved away to new purpose-built buildings in Frognal in Hampstead in 1907, which were opened by HM King Edward VII with the Archbishop of Canterbury in attendance on July 27.

From the archive, 21 July 1982: IRA terror bombs kill eight soldiers in London parks
21 July 1982: Two explosions bring carnage to London’s Hyde Park and Regent’s ParkThe Provisional IRA brought scenes of horror and carnage back to the streets of London yesterday with two bombs that left two cavalrymen dead in Hyde Park and killed six bandsmen from the Royal Green Jackets in Regents Park. At least 51 people, many of the civilians, were taken to hospital, some with serious injuries. The bombs exploded within two hours of each other. The first, made with between 5 and 10Ib of commercial explosives and packed with four and six inch nails, went off at 10.43 am ripping through a troop of 16 soldiers from the Blues and Royals as they left the Knightsbridge Barracks of the Household Cavalry for the daily changing of the guard in Whitehall.

Hampstead

Hampstead though now considered an integral part of London, has retained much of its village charm.

Hampstead is on a steep hill and the tube station platforms are the deepest on the London Underground network, at 58.5 metres below ground level. It has the deepest lift shaft on the Underground.

Although early records of Hampstead itself can be found in a grant by King Ethelred the Unready to the monastery of St. Peter's at Westminster (AD 986) and it is referred to in the Domesday Book (1086), the history of Hampstead is generally traced back to the 17th century.

Trustees of the Well started advertising the medicinal qualities of the chalybeate waters (water impregnated with iron) in 1700. Although Hampstead Wells was initially successful, its popularity declined in the 1800s due to competition with other London spas. The spa was demolished in 1882, although a water fountain was left behind.

Hampstead started to expand following the opening of the North London Railway in the 1860s (now on the London Overground), and expanded further after the tube station opened in 1907.

John Rocque Map of Hampstead (1762).
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map of Hampstead covers an area stretching from the edge in the northwest of present-day Dollis Hill to Islington in the southeast.
