Virtual Admissions Process

Following the UK Government announcement to close schools on 23 March, we are unfortunately not able to welcome prospective families to the school. However, during the school closure period, we have ensured a virtual admissions process is in place to provide families who are considering The Hampshire School Chelsea with the information they need.

We hope that our website, videos, photos and prospectus give you a flavour of what The Hampshire School Chelsea has to offer, and we will be delighted to welcome you to the school as soon as we possibly can.

Our virtual admissions process is outlined below. In the first instance, we would invite you to get in touch with our Admissions Registrar, Mr Gahan, via our enquiry form or by sending an email.

We look forward to meeting you and learning more about your child, albeit virtually for the time being.

Make an Enquiry

We invite you to contact our Admissions Registrar on or complete our enquiry form. Our Admissions Registrar, Mr Gahan, will send you our online prospectus and discuss the next steps in our admissions process. He will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have at this stage.

Virtual Meeting with the Head

We invite you to meet with the Head, Dr Edmonds, virtually via Google Meet video calls. In the meeting, you will be able to discuss the needs of your child and ask questions about how The Hampshire School Chelsea can help nurture and develop your child's talents and abilities. Depending on which year group your child would be joining, we will also ensure you meet relevant members of our team virtually. 

Registration and Assessment

Following a meeting with the Head, Dr Edmonds, we will invite you to register for a place at The Hampshire School Chelsea. Please download our Registration Form and return to our Admissions Registrar at admissions@thehampshireschoolchelsea.co.uk. Please also kindly note that the Registration Fee per child is £120 and non-refundable. We will discuss how your child will be assessed depending on the year group they would be joining. Children applying for Year 2 and above will be invited for a virtual interview with Dr Edmonds, in addition to completing an assessment in English and Maths. Children applying for Pre Nursery to Year 1 will be assessed based on their previous school or nursery reports.

Offer and Acceptance

Once we have reviewed the information provided, we will be able to confirm whether we are able to offer a place for your child. We will then send a formal offer letter together with our Terms and Conditions, which you will need to sign and agree to in order to accept a place. At this stage, we will ask you to pay a deposit to secure your child’s place. 

Induction

In the term prior to your child starting at The Hampshire School Chelsea, you will receive the Starter Pack and an invitation to Induction Day.
