Welcome to The Hampshire School

Founded in 1928 by the visionary artist, teacher and celebrated actress, June Hampshire, as an academically ambitious school with roots in the performing arts. The School motto, ‘Alte Spectemus’ reflects our commitment to high aspirations and academic success whilst maintaining its tradition as a school anchored in the arts. Aiming high is a fundamental element of the broad and rigorous curriculum which is further strengthened by an extensive after-school clubs, activities programme and wrap around care.

With our pre-prep and prep school located in an iconic building in the heart of Chelsea, London, we have the perfect learning environment to nurture, inspire and prepare every pupil to take their places as leaders and innovators in a rapidly changing world. 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 joy of learning and the fun of childhood exploration start in our EYFS setting, in a Victorian house in Wetherby Place where a positive, exploratory and confident attitude to effective learning is nurtured. Our Growth Mindset approach encourages every pupil to build the confidence to view challenges as ‘portals to learning’. We fully prepare our pupils for the finest local and national day and boarding independent senior schools at 11+ and 13+ and we have an enviable record of successful transition to the finest, most academic, senior schools.

I hope that our website conveys what makes The Hampshire School so special and it shows the strong, holistic, education which aims to develop happy, confident and intellectually stimulated children. There is, however, no substitute for experiencing the life of The Hampshire School first hand; I do hope you will come and visit. A warm welcome awaits.

To arrange a visit and to meet our pupils and staff, please call us on 0207 352 7077 or email admissions@thehampshireschoolchelsea.co.uk

I look forward to meeting you.
