Horris Hill School has a unique ethos which develops every boy as an individual and provides a rigorous and extensive academic, sporting, musical and artistic foundation.

We deliver success by achieving places and awards at the very best senior schools and boys with impeccable manners, good humour and active brains! In the past academic year awards to senior schools have included: Academic at Winchester, Eton and Marlborough, Outstanding Talent at Harrow, Music and Drama at St Edward's Oxford and Milton Abbey, Sport at Millfield and Sherborne.

We believe that the period from 4–13 years of age are the most critical in any boys' life. These are the years where the foundations of the men they can become are laid. At such a crucial stage in their cultural development, we believe that an all-boys' school provides the optimal setting where boys will exercise their intellectual inquisitiveness, free to explore all avenues, building self-confidence and awareness in a safe and encouraging environment.

We offer a wide variety of sports and extra-curricular activities, so that every boy has the opportunity to develop interests away from the classroom. The main sports are Rugby, Football, Cricket, Hockey and Tennis. We also have our own golf course, train and modelling room, swimming pool, squash court and cross country course. For boys with green fingers, we have our very own Kitchen Garden. We also offer Lamda for budding performers, Judo, Sailing, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Mandarin and a hugely successful Chess Club.

We offer an Exeat weekend bus service to/from London. For local day boys we offer a morning bus service from Winchester, Stockbridge and Andover. Bursaries available. Many boys join us in Reception/Years 1–3 as day pupils and transition to boarding by year 6. We are a 7 day week boarding school and the majority of boys board in years 7 and 8.
