Hampshire is a top producer of Fulbright Scholars
The U.S. State Department and the Chronicle of Higher Education have named Hampshire College a top producer of Fulbright Scholars for 2016-17. Hampshire is one of 11 bachelor’s institutions to receive the designation this year.
"There are two reasons why Hampshire graduates achieve so much. One is the kind of person the college attracts. The other is what the college does for them by equipping them to become their own wide-ranging explorers and connection-seekers."
Loren Pope, Colleges that Change Lives (2006)
Hampshire College is a member of Colleges that Change Lives, a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and support of a student-centered college search process.
Considering a school for your child for the first time, or when they are moving between schools, is a very important as well as exciting responsibility. We appreciate that parents want to be fully informed so that they can decide which school they would prefer their child to attend. We welcome all enquiries and will be happy to arrange a mutually convenient time for you to visit. You may view our prospectus here on our website which contains the up-to-date information that you need. You can also read our latest Ofsted Report and Statutory Inspection of Church Schools Report - refer to the drop down menu for the links.
Hampshire’s admissions policy is an “Equal Preference” system which has been designed to give parents more choice. The online application form for Year R asks parents to list schools in order of preference. All schools named on the form will rank the applications according to the priorities in their Admissions Policy (see below) and consider them all at the same time. If more than one school can offer a place, the parents’ highest preference will be allocated.
If your child was born between 1st September 2013 and 31st August 2014 he or she would be entitled to start school in September 2018. Our PAN (Planned Admission Number) is 14.
Applications can be made online from 1st November 2017 at www.hants.gov.uk/admissions and the deadline for Year R 2017 applications is midnight on the 15th January 2018. Offer letters/emails will be sent to parents by County Admissions in April 2018. If you have any questions about the application process, please call the Admissions Team on 0300 555 1377.
If you request admission on denominational grounds, you must also complete a SIF (supplementary information form) certified by an appropriate church authority (included in the Admissions Policy below).
Of course, you are welcome to apply for places in other year groups at any time during the academic year using the “In Year” application form available from the school office or online via the Hampshire Admissions website. If you have any questions about admissions, please contact us.
We sometimes have places available - please call us if you wish to discuss the possibility of your child joining our school.
