Military Families

We are delighted to welcome both Veterans, and those currently serving in our Armed Forces, to Horris Hill. As one of the leading Prep Boarding Schools in the UK, we pride ourselves on excellence in education, both inside and outside the classroom.

Boasting a passionate and supportive staff, fused with the energy, enthusiasm and excitement of a large extended family, Horris Hill has much to offer your child. Aside from outstanding academic results, our pupils live a full and varied life with us. Situated in 65 acres of beautiful Hampshire countryside, our enviable setting is as inspiring for learners as it is exciting for adventurers. We offer excellence in everything we do, from pastoral care to academics and from sport to creative arts. 

Horris Hill is owned by Forfar Education, founded by a former Queen’s Royal Hussar, John Forsyth. We fully recognise the support that all our current armed forces and veterans require, not just those with CEA.  For that reason, we offer the largest bursaries in the country to all serving forces personnel and veterans.  Forfar’s wish is that for all those veterans and military personnel who want an excellent education for their children at Horris Hill, they can have it at a cost that is reasonable and affordable. Horris Hill has long been the Preparatory School of choice for the military, with dozens of its leaders being part of our Alumni.

In recognition of our debt to those who serve the UK in its Armed Forces, we have specific bursary support for families, both of currently serving personnel and veterans. This is a limited offer and available to families new to Horris Hill School.

A warm welcome!

Visit us to get a feel for life at Horris Hill and all that we can offer your family. We hold regular events and would be delighted if your child would join us for a day, or overnight (for those in Year 3 and above). Our taster sleepovers give an excellent opportunity for children to meet other boarders and to hear their first-hand experience of being such a fundamental part of our community.


Meet other military families

We are proud of our Military heritage and as such would be delighted to introduce you to current Military families as well as members of our Alumni.
