Henry Beaufort School, is a secondary school in Harestock, a suburb of Winchester, in the county of Hampshire in England.

About the school[edit]

The school was built in 1971 as the first purpose-built, co-educational, comprehensive school in Winchester, to serve the new developments created by the new Teg Down, Weeke Manor and Harestock estates. In the first year of opening the school had a full complement of year 7 children and about half a year 8 complement. The school grew each year until 1975 it had a full 5 years of intake. The first headmaster was a Mr. Hubert, who remained headmaster until 1990 when he retired. He was replaced by D. Dickinson who was head for about 10 years. He left in 2000 and was replaced by Jonathan de Sausmarez. The current Headteacher is Sue Hearle.

Refurbishments[edit]

2009 refurbishment[edit]

In January 2009 most buildings were refurbished, including exterior and interiors. This included painting the building in the new navy blue and white as opposed to the pale blue and black before it. The school was also looking forward to a new Astroturf pitch. Construction for said pitch started in June 2009 and is now completed.[2]

2013-14 refurbishment[edit]

The largest of the schools buildings known as "Tower Block" housing the languages and humanities departments started a refit in 2012. The two departments were required to move to temporary buildings at the top of the site whilst work was taking place, but have now returned to the newly refurbished building. Work on the block was completed in March 2014.
