Bellevue Education has been working in partnership with the leadership team at this GEMS school since September 2018.

The Hampshire School Chelsea is a leading co-educational, independent day school for pupils aged 3 to 13 years located in the heart of Chelsea, London. It was founded in 1928 by the visionary artist, teacher and celebrated actress, June Hampshire, as an academically ambitious school with roots in the performing arts. 

The School motto, ‘Alte Spectemus’ reflects our commitment to high aspirations and academic success whilst maintaining its tradition as a school anchored in the arts. Aiming high is a fundamental element of the broad and rigorous curriculum which is further strengthened by an extensive after-school clubs, activities programme and wrap around care.

The joy of learning and the fun of childhood exploration start in our EYFS setting, in a Victorian house in Wetherby Place where a positive, exploratory and confident attitude to effective learning is nurtured. Our pre-prep and prep school is located within close proximity in the iconic old Chelsea Library, which provides the perfect learning environment to nurture, inspire and prepare every pupil to take their places as leaders and innovators in a rapidly changing world.

We pride ourselves on supporting individual progress with each pupil achieving their personalised goals and encourage all pupils to develop their sporting, artistic and creative talents. The Hampshire School is a very special place in which to work, learn and develop the skills needed to lead happy and fulfilling lives.
