Hyde Abbey School was a British independent school in Winchester, Hampshire, UK.

The school was founded by the Reverend Charles Richards some time before 1783.[1]

In 1795, Sir John Soane constructed a dedicated schoolroom for the school – his only building in Winchester.[2]

By 1847, the school had closed and its building was taken on a lease as the first Hampshire Museum.[3]
