The Henry

Service Families

Dear Service Families,

I am writing to introduce myself as the Service Families Coordinator at Henry Beaufort School.

We fully recognise that military life can present all sorts of additional challenges for service families and we aim to identify and support our service students both as individuals and as a group.


We offer a range of opportunities such as a weekly lunch time drop-in meeting exclusively for services students and the opportunity to participate in various trips and events such as Creative Forces Day at Winchester University and Remembrance Sunday at Winchester Cathedral.


As well as this we can provide a range of bespoke support according an individual student’s needs.

Current or prospective families are invited to contact me via email with any queries :

The video below provides details on the steps that Forces families need to take to secure a school place for their child. It provides practical clarity for families and exemplifies the processes and challenges that are faced.




The clip below is a video of some of the Service Students here at The Henry Beaufort School, which was used to promote a Service Students conference in the University of Winchester in 2016. The University's Widening Participation Co-ordinator uses this video in her workshops - and commented what "lovely students, talking so eloquently. I have received many comments about how impressive the Henry Beaufort students are".
