  • Wellington
  • Sailing Club
  • Stroud School Romsey

Hill Lane

The School has occupied the Hill Lane site since 1938. With over 13 acres it contains an extensive range of facilities including a number of new additions and major refurbishments completed over the last few years. These include a new design technology block, a refurbished dining hall, 6th form centre, ICT rooms, a security and access control system and 17 science laboratories.

The site also has games fields, a sports hall, netball courts and a full astro pitch. Additional extensive games facilities are available at the Wellington ground just 10 minutes from the main school site.

Lovaton

The Lovaton Rural Study centre was purchased in 2004. Located near Yelverton on Dartmoor, it has easy access to the moor, and was converted to provide an offsite facility for 24 students including accommodation, a refectory, study area and a drying room. It is used as a base for the Duke of Edinburgh Award as well as for academic study weekends and fieldwork.

Wellington

The Wellington ground was purchased in 2004 from the University of Southampton. It contains thirty three acres of grounds, six tennis courts, four netball courts and a water based astro pitch. A large pavilion with eighteen changing rooms, a kitchen and catering facilities for over one hundred students is also available.

Sailing Club

Sailing takes place on Wednesday afternoons for the Sixth Form, and at weekends for other pupils. Our base is at Southampton Water Activities Centre SWAC which is an RYA recognised centre.

 

Stroud School Romsey

Stroud is an exciting school where children thrive in our unique family environment. In May 2012 Stroud became the Preparatory School to King Edward VI, Southampton. This move brings together two highly successful Hampshire independent schools and we look forward to the next exciting chapter in the history of Stroud.

Stroud is set within 22 acres of beautiful rural Hampshire countryside on the edge of the market town of Romsey. The outstanding outdoor facilities include sports fields, woodland, Forest School, Beach School and a school farm.

Admissions

Selection at 11+ and 13+ is based on academic merit, assessed through entrance examinations, an interview at the School and a reference from a candidate's previous School or Schools.
