What the school says...

GEMS Hampshire School places traditional values at the core of our school's philosophy, whilst preparing our children for a rapidly changing world. Our school focuses upon exceptionally high expectations, key skills, knowledge and understanding of the British Curriculum as well as encouraging excellent attitudes to learning and metacognition. We place great value in our working partnership with parents.

At GEMS Hampshire School we recognise the uniqueness of each child and we continually aim to provide an inclusive, enabling environment which empowers all children to achieve. The schools personalised approach to learning embraces and responds to diversity in individual learning styles and provides children with the skills, competence and attitudes for their future. Our extra-curricular provision is outstanding. We provide a comprehensive sport, cultural and performing arts programme beyond the school day as well as access to holiday camps, residential trips and participate in local events.

We are situated in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, with easy access from most areas of the London region. The schools generous facilities provide a vibrant, supportive and creative learning environment that encourages challenge, curiosity and choice for all. We look forward to sharing that experience with you and your family. If you have not been to our school please feel free to visit.

Children on the SEN register receive at least one hour per week of individual support on their identified targets. Progress is closely monitored and the IEPs are reviewed regularly. Parents are given regular feedback and are consulted on the target setting for the IEPs. Provision for EAL is tailored to the child's needs.
