About the School

Hamilton College is more than a school – it is a journey – a journey in education, in developing talents and gifts and in creating self-belief. Hamilton College is a non-denominational Christian Independent school for children and young people from the ages of 3-18.

The school encompasses Nursery, Junior and Senior levels generating a truly ‘family’ atmosphere for the individual as they journey through the school.

We provide a challenging, inclusive education for all, with class numbers restricted to ensure that adequate time and provision is accorded to the individual pupil. This philosophy promotes excellence in the individual in their preferred areas of learning.

Christian values and teachings underpin all that we aim to do at Hamilton College and these are evident throughout our school based activities and in our wider school community. We aim to instil this in our young people through the development of their character and in their attitude to themselves and to others, as they progress through each stage of their Hamilton College journey.
