About the school

Thanks to the local philanthropist Henry Perin, Perins School has been educating the youth of Alresford for over 300 years and is one of the oldest schools in the county.  Henry Perin died in 1696 leaving funds in his will to build a school in Alresford to educate “19 poor men’s sons”.  He stipulated that 6 boys should come from New Alresford, 5 from Old Alresford, 4 from Bishops Sutton and 4 from Cheriton.  The school was founded in 1698 and a group of trustees, the rectors from the four parishes, established to oversee the school.

It is fair to say that Perins has changed somewhat since 1698, and we now have nearly 1200 students from a wide catchment across Hampshire. The staff at Perins are extremely proud of the school and the students within it.

We are lucky to have a culture of support and collaboration, and we are proud in the community that has been created over the years, both within school and locally.

At Perins we are committed to providing a rounded and rich educational experience for all our students with the belief that everyone is entitled to high levels of individual achievement, care and support.  We are proud of our sense of community, with the quality of relationships between staff and students characterised by trust, respect and mutual support.

Staff at Perins feel looked after and considered and because of this we are able to provide a warm and active learning environment where students can thrive and enjoy school life, and it is genuinely  a pleasure to be a part of this. We are recognised nationally for our excellent academic standards as well as our outstanding provision within sports, drama, music, arts and a host of other activities. Whatever the passion is within the child, we will do everything in our power to enhance this; to fully realise their potential and ensure that they have the strongest foundation for their future lives.

We recognise that the most important assets we have are our employees and we need to ensure we employ the very best people to every single role. Every role across Perins is valued, appreciated and purposeful, and every single role is vital to the success of the school and our students.

We are genuinely excited about welcoming new and talented people to be part of our team and community. Our vision to develop resilient and caring young people can only be met and sustained if we recruit the right people whose priority is the welfare and potential of the young people in our care.
