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.
