We enjoyed welcoming visitors and journalists from several publications over recent years, below is a small sample of the kind words they have said about Walhampton School:

“Mr Timms is very much a 21st-century educator, alive to the issues of the day that affect the younger generation.”

Independent School Reviews | Expert Advice | Talk Education

“This co-ed school brims with happiness and is friendly rather than imposing: there’s not a trace of arrogance despite Walhampton more than pulling its weight as a top prep ensuring pupils head to their first-choice senior school.”


“Many prep-school surroundings are spectacular, but Walhampton has an edge.”

Country Life

“Walhampton is quite simply a magical and unique place.”


“Walhampton pupils can’t fail to be inspired.”

The Week

“Shortlisted for the Prep School of the Year award in 2018.”


“The ethos of Walhampton is very much one of living life to the full.”

The Spectator

“Fishing and sailing ponds, a Faraway Tree and a Wishing Seat, beehives, bluebell woods and casual clothes for supper – mud is part of the curriculum.”

Country Life

“Nestled in ancient woodland on the southern edge of the New Forest, Walhampton benefits from a setting that few prep schools can match.”

School House

"The school feels like something out of Swallows and Amazons, with Portmore Pond for sailing, Sandwalk Pond for fishing and a jaunty shepherd’s hut on the lawn. Pupils spend as much time outdoors as possible, for learning as well as play."

"If you’re looking for ‘next school’ results, you’re in the right place."
