About us

Thank you for your interest in Hope Community School, Southampton's first mainstream Free School and newest Primary.

In September 2017, New Generation Schools Trust plan to open a new primary school in Southampton city centre for children aged 4-11. This exciting and innovative school will be school of Christian designation, open to children of any and no faith. 

Hope Community School, Southampton will be the first mainstream free school in Southampton city centre. The school is being set up in response to a widely recognised need for an additional educational choice and the need for community cohesion. 

We aim to open with a reception intake of 60 pupils, with class sizes of 30. We will then increase with two new reception classes each year until we reach a full capacity of 420 pupils.
