Our new Gardening Club (HHGC) have now planted over 138 pots but have room for more! If you are able to donate seedlings or potatoes we would be very grateful. Bags of compost and a greenhouse would really put smiles on our faces!

Careers

Hampton Futures – Career Education and Guidance

It is important that all students are fully supported and guided through the process of planning their futures. The Careers Programme which is guided by our Careers Policy (which can be found in the Policy section of the School website) and aims to follow the government recommended Gatsby benchmarks.  For more information on this award and the Gatsby benchmarks see the links below.

http://www.qualityincareers.org.uk/

https://www.careersandenterprise.co.uk/schools-colleges/gatsby-benchmarks

With a programme of education, information, advice and guidance for all students from Years 7 -13 we believe our students are well prepared for their futures. Staff at Hampton High, play an active role in preparing them. We have a full programme of careers education that is delivered through PHSCE, special events, enrichment programmes, visits, trips, individual careers interviews, assemblies and also within individual departments and through form time.

All students will:

  • Develop a deeper understanding of themselves, their abilities and affinities
  • Gain a greater knowledge of the range of opportunities open to them
  • Take part in work related activities in and out of school
  • Understand the labour market and the requirements and expectations of employers
  • Learn to make decisions wisely about their future
  • Be fully prepared to manage change and be fully supported through key transition periods
  • Learn how to improve their own employability: how to find work, how to get work and how to progress their careers


All students can meet with the Career Advisers for individual advice about options, future choices, UCAS planning and applications, CV clinic, interview preparation, apprenticeship applications, and any other guidance they need.  There is no restriction as to how many 1:1 guidance appointments they can have over their time in the school.  We also welcome parents to contact us for any advice or guidance they require.  The Future’s Team is always in attendance at Parents’ Evenings from Year 9-13, no appointment is necessary on those evenings. 

Employer Encounters

All year groups will have an employer encounter once a year to understand from employers about their workplace and the skills required. This could be visiting speakers, careers fairs, networking events, trips to workplaces or mentoring.  

Experiences of workplaces

Work experience at Hampton High takes place in year 12 and is arranged by the students.  Work experience contributes to the development of key skills, encourages maturity and self-reliance and supports pupils learning into adult life. During years 7 – 11 the school also looks at other ways of enabling our students to have work based experiences eg through curriculum and extra curriculum based activities.

Labour Market Information

Labour market information (LMI) is provided to help students and parents make informed decisions about future study or employment options. Current LMI for London can be found at http://www.careerslondon.org/
