Sixth Form

Introduction

Hampton High Sixth Form is a co-educational provision for students aged 16-19. 
Our core philosophy is to ensure our students enjoy a love of learning, achieve beyond their expectations, and feel empowered to become the leaders of, and contributors to, a better society.

Students wishing to apply for September 2018 will be able to do so on line through UCAS Progress which is now live. The deadline for applications is the 12 January 2018. Applicants must check their emails regularly (including their SPAM boxes) once they have applied as all communications including invitations to interview and Conditional Offers are sent to the address supplied to UCAS Progress. We would advise using an address which is monitored regularly which could be a parents.

This will mean that some students could have a dual site experience. If this is the case and students study two of the three courses here at Hampton High they will be recognised as a Hampton High student.

Sixth Form Facts

What will the Sixth Form be like?

Hampton High Sixth Form is a friendly co-educational sixth form offering a range of A Levels and excellent pastoral care. Selected vocational courses and GCSE Maths and English resits will also be offered. Students will have an outstanding tutorial programme and offered a wide range of extra-curricular activities, trips, visits and work experience that will set our students apart when applying for university. Hampton High Sixth Form students will have the opportunity to take on leadership roles in the wider Hampton High community that will help prepare them for their next steps.

Why should students study in the Sixth Form at Hampton High?

Hampton High has a reputation for offering a supportive, caring and academic environment which provides guidance for our students. Students will have the opportunity to study with staff who know them well and are highly qualified subject specialists. We believe that the wider experiences and enrichment we offer is central to our ethos. We want our Sixth Form students to work hard and enjoy the social aspect that is unique to the Sixth Form environment because they should enjoy learning, feel empowered and achieve outstanding results.

What will the timetable be like?

Students will choose 3 A or 1 A level and 1 BTEC which they will study over 2 years. 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 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. Our links with Waldegrave and Teddington mean 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. We have our own onsite careers team called Hampton Futures. 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, 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 and PCs in school for use by students in and out of lessons.

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.
