What says..

Sheltering beneath the architectural grandeur is some pretty impressive modern technology. None of this has come at the expense of tradition, however, and bookworms would adore the fabulous school library: cavernous, marble-columned, galleried, and home to thousands of books. We liked the pupil work that we saw on display, particularly the French, and this struck us as a school where children are free to flourish at their own pace. Kindness really does seem to be the way here, and everyone we spoke to agreed.

What the school says...

The 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 The 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.

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.

Since 2014, Donal Brennan BEd (50s). Soft-spoken, bearded, kindly. A Kerry man, one of seven, who went to a tiny village school with two teachers and no electricity or running water: 'It was a fantastic place - education was everything there.' Always wanted to be a teacher. Read education, theology and art at Trinity College Dublin, then trained at the Froebel College as a primary school teacher.
