Ballard School

Über uns

Ballard is a thriving and welcoming co-educational independent day school for children aged 2 to 16. Set in 34 acres between the New Forest and the Solent on the Hampshire / Dorset border, we are rated ‘Excellent and Outstanding’ in all ISI inspection categories; the highest accolade any school can achieve. We have also been rated a Green Flag Eco School, Artsmark Gold and Sports School Gold.

We pride ourselves on our forward-thinking curriculum, providing an aspirational, academic and holistic education. Our staff inspire and guide our young people, challenging and supporting them in equal measure.  The School’s drive to deliver a first-class education, with a close eye on the future, is shaping our ambitious investment and development plans.

Our pastoral care is rooted in kindness and respect, and underpinned by Christian values. The Ballard family’s wellbeing is central to the ethos of the School. Our inclusive approach to school life values individuality and fosters generosity of spirit; our young people look out for each other and the wider community.

Ballard educates the whole child, providing a wide range of sporting, cultural, artistic and academic clubs and activities. Our aim is to ignite passions and develop skills, identifying and unlocking every child’s inner genius.
