What The Good Schools Guide says..
The head is keen to take learning outside as much as possible and as a result this was one of the most deserted schools we have ever toured. ‘Mud is part of the curriculum,’ said one member of staff.
What the school says...
Walhampton is located on the southern edge of the New Forest near Lymington. Set in a hundred acres, with lakes, woodland and extensive games fields, the school provides wonderful facilities for sailing, fishing, riding, fieldwork, orienteering and traditional sports. The principal focus of Walhampton is to provide the academic rigour along side a true breadth of extra curricular activities. The dedicated and passionate staff and small classes help to explain the impressive scholarship board and our consistently fine examination results.
Through our well rounded approach to education, we also believe in helping each child to develop his or her own potential, whether it be in the academic, sporting or cultural life of the school. We prepare each child for the challenges of life ahead by providing opportunities to grow in self-reliance, self-discipline, confidence, Christian standards, responsibility and consideration for others. We hope that you can come and visit us and we would be delighted to show you all that Walhampton has to offer. ...Read more

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2012, Mr Titus Mills (Eton, University of East Anglia and Oxford). Has taught across the spectrum, latterly as head of The Paragon, an independent school in Bath, and prior to that as head of St George’s International Junior school in Rome and deputy head of St Mark’s C of E school in Lambeth. Named Titus after the family donkey. The kids from St Mark's sang ‘Oh Happy Day’ at his wedding to Jemima, who is involved in many aspects of school life, from meeting parents to arts and crafts. They have three young sons at the school.
Head is charming, his ease of manner no doubt stemming from his Eton roots; he is also warm, penetrating, and very enthusiastic. Mr Mills relishes a challenge: he has turned around schools...
