Gipsy Hill is a road in the southeastern corner of the London Borough of Lambeth, as well as a name applied generally to the hilly area south of Gipsy Road and east of Salters Hill. Gipsy Hill ward is also the name of an electoral ward of Lambeth Borough Council that includes parts of West Norwood and West Dulwich.

About the area

Gipsy Hill is the name of the main road that runs in a southerly direction from Gipsy Road, near its junction with South Croxted Road, up to Westow Hill in Upper Norwood. It takes its name from the presence of Gipsies in what was a relatively remote rural area until Gipsy Hill railway station was opened in 1856. On 11 August 1668, Samuel Pepys recorded in his diary that his wife had visited "the gypsies at Lambeth"; they may well have been located in this area.

Gipsy Hill Police Station is located on a road named Central Hill about 50 m from the top of the one named Gipsy Hill. It is London's highest Metropolitan Police station.

In Lunham Road there is a decommissioned nuclear bunker. The 18-room bunker was constructed between 1963 and 1966 as part of a block of flats on the Central Hill Estate called Pear Tree House.

Schools

*Elm Wood Primary School

(Note that as of the start of the school year in 2012, Kingswood School was split across two sites, with infants and nursery at Kingswood Lower Site (formerly Norwood Park Primary School) and juniors at Kingswood Upper Site).
The expansion of Kingswood was driven by the school's success and huge popularity within the local area. It consistently performs in the high nineties in its Year Six SATs, and is outstanding in Ofsted reports. It is also a national school of excellence, and as such mentors failing schools that need to improve. So far it has taken on both Paxton and Elm Wood schools when they were put in special measures, and under the umbrella of the Gipsy Hill Federation, both schools have turned around and now also have Outstanding ratings by Ofsted.

The site is due for development by the London Borough of Lambeth as a Pupil referral unit - see [http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/moderngov/mgDecisionDetails.asp?IId=7110&Opt=1|Lambeth's decision] The school website was still 'live' as of 25 April 2012)
The school did become a pupil referral unit, Park Campus. The council developed part of the site for this unit, which has a roll of around 80 pupils under the age of 16. The remaining school buildings are now Kingswood Lower Site, with 14 classes from nursery to year 2. Pupils at Kingswood Primary go to the Kingswood Upper Site (just further up Gipsy Road) for Year's 3 to 6.
