Hampton College opened in 2005 and has grown steadily each year since then. The school has enjoyed significant success in recent years, both in terms of recognition from OFSTED (four full inspections all Good or Outstanding ) and in our public examination results.
In September 2012 Hampton College became a 'through-school' and opened a new state-of–the-art primary school building in September 2013, next to the current secondary school’s campus. The Primary Phase will now continue to grow each academic year by an intake of 60 Reception children until it serves the full primary age range by 2018, having 420 primary students on roll by that time. The Primary Phase have their own website which I would encourage you to visit and explore.
On 1 September 2014 Hampton College converted to an academy, which means that as a successful school, we have been approved by the Department for Education to run our own affairs. The school is now managed by our own educational trust: the Hampton Academies Trust. We are what is termed a 'multi-academy trust' and our second school, Hampton Gardens, opened in September 2017.
Governors and school leaders have considered what we really value in education, which is summed up in our motto: progress, partnership and pride.
We will work hard to ensure that students receive excellent teaching, that the curriculum is relevant to their needs and that they receive all the support they need to fulfil their potential. We also believe very strongly in the importance of extra-curricular activities such as clubs and visits, as they develop values and qualities that are valuable in later life.
We are determined that Hampton College will continue to be known for its positive relationships: students work well with each other, and they enjoy good working relationships with staff, with a high level of mutual respect. The College aims to develop strong relationships with its community, including other primary schools, neighbouring secondary schools, and local businesses.
We work hard to establish a partnership with parents/carers, and to ensure that they feel welcome at the College, and fully involved in their child’s education.
We expect the highest standards at all times. We want students to be proud of their own achievements and happy to receive awards from us, sometimes in public gatherings. We expect students to wear the Hampton College uniform with pride because we want them to show that being a Hampton College student is something really special. Over the next year, and as the College moves forward, we hope that parents/carers, and the whole community, will be really proud of the work that goes on here.
I hope that this website will provide you with the information you are looking for. Please feel welcome to contact us, should you require further assistance.
