Head’s Welcome

Horris Hill is a small school with an incredible history and character. The richness of our offering is matched by the quality of our pupil’s achievements. The children achieve wonderful academic results, moving to the best schools in the country, whilst also developing confidence, resilience and a wealth of skills.

Horris Hill is fundamentally a family school. The size of the pupil body allows for outstanding support for each child, with tutors and House Masters providing tailored academic and pastoral support across all year groups. Small class sizes, pupil academic and pastoral tracking across the school allows our pupils to be challenged and supported in equal measure. With a large international community alongside our domestic families and day pupils, the Horris Hill family is an inclusive, modern and broad community.

Our school sits in 65 acres of beautiful Hampshire countryside. This environment allows a great deal of freedom for children of all ages. From nursery upwards, children are able to explore our natural environment though play and outdoor learning. A small school with lots of great facilities and space, our children engage in an extraordinary range of activities from all the major sports like rugby, cricket and football to tennis, hockey, basketball, athletics and cross-country. We also have an outdoor swimming pool and an incredible sports hall. As a result, all our children develop aspiration, independence and confidence with strong character and a willingness to try new things.

This broad provision prepares our children not just for their senior schools, but also for the world beyond. Most of our children are offered places at top Independent Schools. The most popular remain Eton, Winchester, Harrow, Radley and Charterhouse, with several children achieving scholarships each year. With a growing day community and with more girls joining the school we are forming links with a range of local Independent Schools. The school regularly celebrates flair in the pupils, expressed most strongly not only in academic work, but also in the many musical and artistic opportunities our children enjoy. A progressive, pupil led, character-based curriculum creates global citizens with the desire to make a difference in the world.

Horris Hill is a school with a big heart and an exciting future. We hope you will visit us and your family join our community.
