Description:

The Hampshire School was founded by, and takes its name from, Mrs. June Hampshire, who started the school in Surrey in 1928 and moved its operation to Knightsbridge in 1933. In 1961, her daughter, Mrs. Jane Box-Grainger (known as 'Miss Jane') succeeded her as principal. The School expanded into the Ennismore Gardens premises in 1969. In 1982, the school pioneered a policy of taking its older children to France for annual courses of study. All forms over the age of eight continue to enjoy the benefit of these courses as an integral part of the Curriculum. In 1986, ownership of the school was transferred to the Nord Anglia Education Group and Mr. Arthur Bray was appointed as Headmaster. Each school has its own complement of full-time staff and they share a common core of full and part-time teachers. Since 1986 The Hampshire School has expanded to three sites centred around Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. In 1988, the freehold of a building in Queensborough Terrace was acquired and The Kensington Gardens School was started. In 1993, a building in Wetherby Place was acquired and The Knightsbridge Under School was started. Arthur Bray has subsequently become Principal and all three schools come under his direction. They follow the same curriculum and offer the same breadth and depth of education. The schools provide an education for approximately 220 children with a complement of over 60 teachers, administrators, drivers and ancillary staff. Each school has its own complement of full time staff and they share a common core of peripatetic teachers. In July 2004 Nord Anglia sold its entire portfolio of schools to GEMS (Global Educational Management Systems), this is a privately owned company based in Dubai.
