Our School

Hampton Pre-prep will open its doors to 140 children of age 4 to 7 years in September 2021. Our wonderful grounds, currently under construction, extends to around 22,000 square metres of beautiful Jeju countryside. Featuring a purpose-built building with a dedicated indoor gym, dining area, drama theatre facilities, a football field and a mini-golf range.

We are focused on developing lifelong learners with skills that will prepare for their futures. Our approach to teaching and learning will provide an enjoyable, imaginative and intellectually stimulating education which will provide them with a strong foundation to thrive in their next stage of preparatory education.

Unlike many english speaking preschools in Korea, our unique bespoke curriculum includes a Korean language and culture immersion program which will help our pupils become true bilingual speakers who appreciate and respect different cultures.

Since our curriculum is designed with pupils progressing into a British Key Stage 2 or K-12 curriculum in mind, by the time a pupil reaches year 1, our Progression Counselling Team (PCT) will provide consultation and assistance to parents in choosing the most appropriate school for their child.

Furthermore, prep sessions for entrance exams will be available pupils from year 1 for progression into domestic international schools or Prep schools in the United Kingdom.

Once opened, Hampton Pre-prep will become a truly one of a kind pre-prep school in Korea in terms of the facility, faculty and the quality of education.


Hampton Pre Prep is looking for an outstanding full time qualified teacher to join the founding team.

Ideally the successful candidate should be adaptable and have the necessary experience within independent schools.
