About us

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

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

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

We opened with a reception intake of 30 pupils, with class sizes of 30. We currently have over 200 pupils including children in Year R to Year 6.
