We would like to remind you that the Hampton High PE jogging bottoms are now available to purchase, priced at £15. If you would like to make a purchase you can do so via sQuid and we can then place an order for you.

KS4 Overview

At Hampton High we are committed to ensuring students master the core subjects and enjoy a balanced curriculum. It is neither desirable, nor essential, for future career ambitions to over-specialise in specific subject areas. Therefore, we have developed an option system that offers students the right balance between breadth and specialism.

Key Stage 4 - Years 10 and 11

The Department for Education sets out a National Curriculum for core and “entitlement subjects". This gives students a broad curriculum and ensures that they are not disadvantaged by over specialised option choices. As a school we are not constrained by this curriculum, but will always make sure that students are fully prepared for the skills and knowledge they will need in order to succeed at key Stages 4 and 5.

Subject Choice

In choosing a suitable programme of subjects for Key Stage 4, students will need to consider the following aspects:

  • The requirements of a balanced curriculum
  • Subjects in which they have a keen interest, and have experienced a measure of success
  • Entry requirements for Higher Education institutions
  • The English Baccalaureate  

We recommend that all students should consider studying a language up to GCSE standard. In the case of new subjects not available during Key Stage 3, students should seek advice from subject teachers. Presentations will be given to the year group clarifying the nature of these subjects and providing guidelines for those contemplating their selection.

The procedure for making requests under the options programme is explained in the options booklet. Students are given the time to think about what subjects they would wish to study and then asked to complete an options form later in the year. Subject choices will be confirmed during the Summer Term. Students will be contacted earlier if there are difficulties with the combination of options chosen.

The options booklet will be handed out to students during the options evening early in the year.  

At key stage 3, 4 and 5 we have 29 period weeks with 10 registration periods. Each morning there is time for year group assemblies and tutor time activities.

The curriculum at key stage 4 (years 10 and 11)

The majority of students study our core curriculum and an additional four subjects from those on offer.

Looking Beyond Year 11

Whilst the choices you make in Year 9 will shape your next two years at Hampton High, they will also have an impact on your options after Year 11. This may involve staying on at Hampton High Sixth Form, going to another college or gaining employment with training. In the UK there are qualifications at six different levels (see the table below) and in Year 10 you embark on courses that will begin to take you through these levels. It is important to know what opportunities will be available based on these choices.

Level 3

To progress onto A level courses or Level 3 vocational courses (e.g. BTEC Diplomas/ BTEC Nationals, Level 3 VRQs / NVQs) you will need to have at least 5 GCSE grades at grade 5 or above or equivalent grades on vocational courses.

Level 2

Where students have achieved at least 5 GCSE grades 4-1 they will be able to progress onto Level 2 courses (BTEC First Awards, Level 2 VRQ / NVQ, Level 2 NVQ, Trainees & Apprenticeships).

Going on to University  

If you are considering applying for a particular university course, you should check your GCSE choices will be suitable. In general, universities will be looking for students with good academic outcomes and outstanding study skills and habits. The Russell Group, which represents some of the UK's leading and many competitive universities, has published a guide to assist students with their decision making about post-16 education, called Informed Choices. They identify a number of A level subjects that are required more often than others for entry onto their degree courses. These subjects are: Mathematics/Further Mathematics, English Literature, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Geography, History and Languages (Classical & Modern).

Trust News

Keeping safe and well continues to be the top priority for our schools and we have been and will be focussing on this carefully and clearly during this difficult time. You will be aware that last year I wrote to you informing you that our school needed to move to a larger Trust. Currently Hampton High is part of RWST which, as you know, is a small two school Trust. Government policy and clear guidance given to RWST states that Trusts should be larger rather than smaller as this is when the benefits of being in a Trust such as collaboration, staff development, back office capacity and financial benefits due to economies of scale and buying power can be realised.  Since last Spring a process has been undertaken to choose a Trust for RWST schools to join.  Headteachers, Governors and Trustees have worked hard to choose the correct Trust and the next move for the school will benefit the students and staff.  I am pleased to say that Bourne Education Trust (BET) was chosen as the Trust RWST schools wished to move to and we are currently working with BET on plans for RWST schools to join The Bourne Education Trust.   Bourne Education Trust was set up on the 9th September 2013 and is a charitable trust and an exempt charity, it aims to create a community of outstanding schools with the highest aspiration and dedication to achieve the best outcomes for all learners, more information can be found at https://www.bourne.education/383/about-bet.  One of the reasons BET was chosen is that they believe in autonomy for its schools. I do not anticipate changes to the uniform, staffing or curriculum and I plan to remain as Headteacher of this school. As Headteacher I am confident that this is absolutely the correct next step for the school. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email the school on info@hamptonhigh.org.uk with “BET” in the subject line.
