For complex requests there may be an upfront charge of approximately £130 for a survey. This is to make sure that quotes are realistic and so customers do not receive high excess costs at the end of the work.

Hampshire schools annual HPSN2 rental cost

The annual rental cost is based on the formula:

Primary schools  £1,063 + £20.81 per pupil
Special schools  £1,063 + £11.78 per pupil
Secondary schools  £5,263 + £9.33 per pupil

HPSN2 charges use January school census data. The charges on this page apply to the initial HPSN2 bandwidth in your school. If your bandwidth increases in the future, then the rental cost may also increase.

Non-federated schools pay a lump sum plus a cost per pupil, as above. But for federated schools the lump sum is divided up between the schools in the federation.

When joining HPSN2 a school enters into a three year agreement. This term starts from the migration date. In the unlikely event a school wishes to leave before the end of the three year term then these termination fees will apply:

Year 1

Year 2

Year 3

% of remaining charges to be paid (until end of contract)




If a school wishes to terminate its HPSN2 connection we require written notice from the headteacher with six months’ notice. Cancellation fees will not apply for schools that move to academy status and choose to retain their HPSN2 service.
