The school is Camden's first private finance initiative (PFI) school and underwent a £21 million re-build in 2006.[2]

Inspection in 2008 Ofsted resulted in a judgement of Good. But in 2017 Ofsted assessed the school as requiring improvement.[citation needed]

A new headteacher, James Hadley, was recruited at the start of the academic year 2017–18. Many changes were implemented with a renewed focus on academic standards and attendance, with the support of staff and students. As a result, in August 2018 Haverstock School reported the best results at both GCSE and A Level in the history of the school.[citation needed]

In 2018, 66% of students achieved a grade 4 (equivalent to the old C) in Maths and English – an improvement from the previous year's 31% result. [3]
