Welcome to Hampshire Collegiate Prep School

beyond expectationS

As you enter the gates of Hampshire Collegiate School (HCS) you know you have found somewhere special. That feeling gets even stronger as soon as you reach the Nursery and Prep School where the children and staff you meet have a vibrancy and a shared sense of pride and depth that goes way beyond simply welcoming a visitor to our school. As a team, we give everything to ensure your child not only reaches their full potential academically but also experiences an academic and pastoral curriculum, which is distinctive and focused on each individual to ensure they aspire to be their best in their own unique way.

Here at Hampshire Collegiate Prep School (HCPS) we are proud to be different.  We believe that education should form a lifelong journey and it is our responsibility to set your child on this adventure by inspiring them with a never-ending sense of discovery.  

We provide an education with character that uncovers and nurtures each child's niche and encourages ambition and success.  Our excellent level of pastoral care motivates our children to grow in confidence and independence. Our school values of Ambition, Compassion, Integrity, Perseverance and Respect are intrinsic in all that we do to support our children to face any challenge with confidence and purpose.  I would be delighted to introduce you to my wonderful staff and children and invite you to immerse yourself in our surroundings.
