Pupils at The Hammond School in Chester, Cheshire


Information > Welcome

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the website of our unique and vibrant school. With an emphasis on performance, our rich programme of vocational and academic classes provides a positive learning environment for students from the age of seven right through to nineteen years old, and beyond.

Our Preparatory School (7 to 11 years) gives a warm and nurturing introduction to the world of learning and education. Our Lower School (11-16 years) supplies world-class training in dance, drama and music, alongside a traditional academic provision culminating in the achievement of GCSE qualifications.

In the Upper School (from 16 years), we are supported by the DaDA scheme to deliver Trinity College London’s three year Diplomas in Professional Dance and Professional Musical Theatre, and a two year BTEC Drama Diploma (Level 3).

We also provide an excellent choice of A Level subjects to complement vocational training.

Furthermore, we are delighted to offer a BA (Hons) Degree course in Musical Theatre Performance, which we recently launched in collaboration with the University of Chester.

Please enjoy this introduction to life at The Hammond and I hope you will visit us soon to experience our friendly, nurturing and inspiring setting.
