History

In 1946 Embley Park (the former family home of Florence Nightingale) became a boarding school for boys between the ages of 11 and 18. In 1996, the school joined with an all-girls school in based in Romsey formally known as La Sagesse Convent. It then become an educational school consisting of a junior school (ages 3–11), a senior school (ages 11–16) and a sixth form college (ages 16–18).

In 2006, the school underwent another merger with The Atherley School and was renamed Hampshire Collegiate School, part of the United Church Schools Trust. An investment of £14 million expanded the senior school and a created a brand new junior school, since then a new all weather astroturf pitch and 6 new tennis courts have been built and there are further plans for expansion on the site.

Academics

The school is continually improving exam results. In 2008 at GCSE 98.9% of students have achieved at least five A*-C passes, and 71% gained A*-B grades. At A-level 100% entered the university of their choice and the average UCAS points was over 270.[1]
