Hampshire Collegiate School (HCS) is a warm and welcoming independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 2-18.

There is a collective energy about the school’s 130 acre campus which provides a beautiful space in which students can learn, play, compete and achieve. HCS continues to go from strength to strength, and visitors to the school will witness a dynamic Sixth Form as well as a thriving boarding community, that attracts both UK and international students.

At HCS our aim is to focus on each individual child, creating an environment where they will flourish, whatever their ability and talent. Our vision is that our students have the enthusiasm to learn and the ambition to succeed. It is important to us that they have the confidence and determination to explore their interests and that they have the opportunity to develop creatively as well as academically.

The school is easily accessible by road and operates an extensive school transport system which covers much of Hampshire, Wiltshire and the New Forest.
