GCSE Results 2017We are delighted with the GCSE results this year. The students and staff have worked incredibly hard through the year and the results are a credit to them.
Although the introduction of the new GCSE in English and Maths has proved challenging and makes comparison with last year difficult, the percentage of students achieving Grade 4+ in English and Maths has increased from 46% A*-C in 2016 to 66% this year – a whopping 20% increase.
75% of our Maths students achieved Grade 4+ and 73% of the English students, again increases from 51% and 63% last year. This is a real testament to the hard work and dedication of all involved.
It is also fantastic to see a number of students achieving the very highest Grade 9 in both English and Maths as well as a number of grade 8s achieved across both subjects.
The following students have achieved particularly well:
Marc Parker: 4A*s, 2A, 9 in Maths and 7 and 6 in English Literature and English Language
Marina Ghaly: 5A*s, 1A, 8 in English Language and 7 in English Literature and Maths
Sam Martin: 5A*s, 1B, 9 in Maths, 7 and 6 in English Literature and English Language

Year 6 Transition EventsIt was national offer day last Thursday and, despite the snow, we managed to get letters out to all the new families to welcome them to our school community. The first of our two transition events took place on Monday afternoon and we were very impressed with the number of people who attended, despite the rapid turnaround of just one working day between receiving the offer letter and the event. The new students participated in a wide range of workshop activities run by our teachers, whilst the parents and carers remained in the auditorium to hear more about the school and the transition process. Many of our students mingled with our visitors and we had glowing feedback about them and the school. We also had a very successful open morning on Thursday. Our Year 7 and 8 tour guides were a huge hit with families – some of whom were looking around the school for the first time. Again, the feedback we received was very positive; the exemplary attitude to learning in classrooms, the strong working relationships between staff and students, the high standards of uniform, the courtesy of all students moving around the site – and the pride and enthusiasm with which the students and staff spoke about our school. We should like to take this opportunity to thank the Friends of Hampton High for their unfailing support – they were out in force again supporting us at both events. I should also like to thank the team which works with Caroline Curd to ensure that the FoHH Facebook page is kept up to date. It was especially gratifying to read the enthusiastic comments of parents who will be new to the school in September. Finally, I should like to take this opportunity to thank you, our Hampton High families, for your continuing support for our great school. It is wonderful that other people outside of the school are also seeing what we see.

Young Chef of the Year CompetitionOn Wednesday 7 March, six Year 10 GCSE food Prep students attended Richmond upon Thames College to compete in the Young Chef of the Year competition. Shabidul Siddique, Spencer Griffin, Beatrice O’Riodan, Charlotte Cooper, Ella Wyllie and Sophie Creech have competed against 42 other teams to make it to the semi-finals.
Competitors are free to choose any style of cuisine and ingredients, but must include chicken in the main course and any type of pastry in the dessert. In the semi-finals students had to make their main course. Spencer and Shabidul created a fabulous fragrant chicken tagine, Beatrice and Sophie made a mouth-watering chicken breast stuffed with mozzarella and pesto wrapped in prosciutto and finally Charlotte and Sophie cooked up an amazing chicken breast filled with cream cheese, garlic and rosemary wrapped in bacon and served on a bed of asparagus. Only four teams can make it through to the final on 15th March, so fingers crossed for our students, we find out the afternoon of Friday 9th March if we are successful.
Mrs Sumpter, Food Technology Technician said “I would also like to add how proud I was of our students and how they conducted themselves at all times.”
