Visiting the school
and open events
One of the
first and most important steps in our admissions process is for you and your
family to come and see the school for yourself, and to start to get to know us.
open events take place throughout the year. For details of our next open event, please click here.
visits and tours
We will be very happy to
arrange a private appointment for you to meet Mr Canning, our Headmaster, and
have an individual tour of the school. Individual visits can be arranged throughout
the year, at a time that is convenient for you. If you are thinking about
boarding, we can arrange for you to have a tour of our boarding house and to
meet our house parents.
Reception 2018 - We still have some places available for Reception entry in September 2018. Please contact our Registrar, Mrs Jo Baird, on 01794 512206 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment for a tour of the school.
can register your child for a place at our school by completing a registration
form and providing a registration payment of £50 (£100 for pupils joining from
abroad). Places are very popular so we suggest you register your child as early
as possible to avoid disappointment.
Your child will be invited to attend a taster day so that they can
get a feel for what life is like on a typical day at Hampshire Collegiate
School; they can get to know other pupils in their year group, try out our
lessons and meet our teachers.
If your child is joining us in Year 1 to Year
6, they will be asked to sit baseline tests in English and Mathematics. These
tests usually take place as part of the taster day. For the Senior School, your
child will be asked to sit our entrance assessments and attend a short
interview with a senior member of staff. Entry into our Sixth Form is based on
academic success, a suitable reference from the Head of your child’s current
school and a successful interview with Mr Canning, our Headmaster. All
candidates are expected to achieve a minimum of 5 GCSEs at grades
9 to 5 and at least grades 7 or 8 in the A Level subjects to be studied.
Accepting a place
Having completed the application process, Mr Canning will write to
you and let you know if your child has been offered a place. To accept an
offer, we’ll ask you to complete and send to us an acceptance form and a
deposit of £250 (£2500 for pupils joining from abroad). The offer letter will
provide further instructions about how long the offer is valid for and when you
will need to respond by.
Progress through the school
All pupils who join us at one
of our younger entry points will enjoy a full career at Hampshire Collegiate
School, proceeding through our Senior School to study GCSEs and onto our Sixth
Form to study A Levels. All pupils will sit our
entrance assessments for entry into Year 7 at the Senior School and progression
onto the Sixth Form is normally assured by a combination of appropriate
behaviour, hard work and academic success.
