Frequently Asked Questions

What will the timetable be like?

Students will choose three A Level’s or one A level and a Level 3 BTEC which they will study over 2 years. This will provide 15 hours of teaching time. Students will have two hours of enrichment every week and 1.5 hours of tutorial time for study skills and PHSE. Each student will also have study periods on their timetable and they will be expected to work in the Sixth Form study base during this time. The school site will be open until 6pm Monday to Thursday for study support and use of the library and IT facilities.

What extra activities will be on offer?

There will be considerable additional opportunities for students in the sixth form which include competitive sport for boys and girls, recreational sport, enrichment clubs, university visits, charity and community projects and cultural enrichment. Visits to theatres, galleries and museums will form a rich thread through the Hampton High Sixth Form experience. We have strong links with Hampton Boys and Lady Eleanor Holles as well as other sixth form colleges in the borough which means that our students can also participate in the full range of extra-curricular activities offered at these schools. All our Sixth Form students will take part in work experience and job shadowing to help them make critical decisions about their future careers.

Will there be careers advice?

Specialist careers advice will be given. Planning for successful progression to university, training or employment will form the backbone of the sixth form experience. Additional coaching will be provided for applications to competitive universities such as Oxbridge and The Russell Group and courses in medicine, dentistry and veterinary science. Students will be supported through this process carefully so that they can make informed decisions and prepare for the next step. Your Study Programme will include employability skills, essential life skills, knowledge of the labour market and specific work experience that links to your next steps.

Will there be computers that students can use in school to study?

Yes, there are IT suites for exclusive sixth form use in the silent study room and also computers in the Library & Sixth Form Centre.

Will there be external students?

Yes, we welcome students from both within our school and the local community.

Will current Hampton High students be guaranteed a place?

There is an admissions policy which we adhere to, so places are not guaranteed.

Will there be a 6th Form Lead member of staff?

Mr Geraint Owen is the Head of Sixth Form and leads both year groups.

Will sixth form students be in a tutor group?

Yes, there will be sixth form tutor groups to offer excellent pastoral care with a programme of activities to inform, support and guide students through sixth form life. Tutor time will be an important part of your study programme and will include academic monitoring, study skills, well-being and a range of issues that relate to life after sixth form.

Will there be a uniform?

There is no formal dress code but students should dress appropriately for a school environment.
