Head’s Welcome

Welcome to The Hampshire School Chelsea

We pride ourselves on supporting individual progress with each pupil achieving their personalised goals and encourage all pupils to develop their sporting, artistic and creative talents. The Hampshire School is a very special place in which to work, learn and develop the skills needed to lead happy and fulfilling lives.

The Hampshire School Chelsea children are inquisitive with unique abilities, interests and aspirations.
‘Aim high’ is the motto of our school and it is one which all members of the school community strive towards.

We are proud of our long history – the school was founded in 1928 – and offers a holistic education from 3-11 in a co-educational setting. Our classic red brick building with a beautiful playground and outside space is a gem within bustling Chelsea. Tucked just off of the King’s Road we are perfectly placed to benefit from a central location and whilst also a stone’s throw from the green space of Battersea Park.

We provide the foundations for each child’s love of learning to flourish within a nurturing and caring ethos. We are a reflective learning community and value the quality of our relationships with our parents and whole school community.

With a Growth Mindset approach, and five core values of Respect, Resilience, Responsibility, Community and Excellence, we nurture personal fulfilment, academic progress and excellence throughout every stage of a child’s time with us.

I hope that our website conveys what makes The Hampshire School Chelsea so special, however, there is no better way to understand what we offer than by visiting us. I look forward to welcoming you.
