Horris Hill School

In September 1888, 16 boys started to attend lessons at a new school in a house just south of Newbury, which had been established by Mr A.H. Evans, a Master from Winchester College.

The school quickly grew and soon established itself in the front rank of preparatory schools and this is where it remains today.
