The Hampshire Records Office (http://www3.hants.gov.uk/archives) should be able to help, if there is no-one local on the forum. :)

Bear in mind the school list is from 1899; it may be worth having a look at an earlier directory just in case a school came and went before the end of the century, or in case it was renamed.
