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.
