Education changes lives and we are privileged to work with young people during the most important time in their lives: their childhood.

Our Vision
John Hanson Community School will inspire all students to rise to the opportunities of the future and achieve their potential, by promoting emotional resilience, social confidence and academic success.

Child Protection
Our first priority is safeguarding children. The school is exempted under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and as such any offer of employment will be conditional upon the receipt of a satisfactory response to a check of police records via Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

The School
John Hanson is a comprehensive community school for students aged 11 – 16. There are currently 980 students on roll; the teaching establishment is around 55 teachers, 55 support staff and a strong sense of community. The Leadership team are totally committed to the principles of comprehensive education and providing the very best learning experience we can for each individual. It is the school’s role to ensure that all students and staff are supported to reach their full potential.

The school can trace its origins back to 1569 with the foundation of Andover Grammar School. In the 1970s the grammar school became a comprehensive school and was renamed John Hanson School after an original benefactor of the Grammar School. In 2002 the school relocated to a greenfield site towards the outskirts of Andover, very close to the A303.
