Hampshire County Council recognises the disadvantage frequently experienced by UK service personnel as a result of the fact that they can be moved at short notice.
Many Hampshire schools have extensive experience of working with service families and children.
Areas of the county significantly affected by service personnel include Gosport, Marchwood, Wallop, Odiham, Aldershot, Winchester, Fleet, Shipton Bellinger etc.
Portsmouth and Southampton are unitary authorities each with a separate School Admissions Service.
