Description

The Hampshire School, Chelsea is a Private preparatory school for 3–11-year-olds in Chelsea, London. The children participate in a variety of specialist lessons each week, including Gym, Art, Music, Drama, Dance, Ballet, Swimming and French. They also participate in a variety of school events, educational school trips and Forest School.

The Good Schools Guide has described the school, "Space is the overwhelming impression you get as you are shown round: no cramped stairways and classrooms in this central London school (what a welcome change from the norm); good sized walled garden, where all children can get some fresh air during break times. State-of-the-art technology throughout."

The Hampshire School, Chelsea is housed in the former Chelsea Library in central London which also served as the library for King's College. The school was founded in 1944 in Surrey by June Hampshire. Mrs Hampshire's daughter Jane Box Grainger succeeded her mother as Headmistress in 1961.

Richard Lock was appointed to the Headship of The Hampshire School Chelsea in 2022. Richard Lock comments: We pride ourselves on supporting individual progress with each pupil achieving their personalised goals and encourage all pupils to develop their sporting, artistic and creative talents. The Hampshire School is a very special place in which to work, learn and develop the skills needed to lead happy and fulfilling lives.

We are proud of our long history – the school was founded in 1928 – and offers a holistic education from 3-11 in a co-educational setting. Our classic red brick building with a beautiful playground and outside space is a gem within bustling Chelsea. Tucked just off of the King’s Road we are perfectly placed to benefit from a central location and whilst also a stone’s throw from the green space of Battersea Park.

We provide the foundations for each child’s love of learning to flourish within a nurturing and caring ethos. We are a reflective learning community and value the quality of our relationships with our parents and the whole school community.”
