At Hampton High we not only aspire to academic success for all of our students, we support the development of well-rounded individuals prepared and ready for the opportunities and challenges of the world of work.
A key aspect of this work is raising the awareness of our students as to the diverse range of careers and educational pathways open to them and this is the focus of our ‘Hampton Futures’ Team. The team of Lauren Nuttall and our career advisors, Alexandra Holmes and Franics Kennedy have over the last year been working together to develop an engaging and impactful programme of career education and guidance across the school.
Ms Nuttall said ‘I am delighted that we now have in place a whole range of opportunities including 1 to 1 guidance with our career advisers, careers activities and visits to employers, which I believe will empower our students to make informed choices about their future career pathways’.
Careers is also an area where parents can help students learn about a variety of different jobs and educational pathways. We are planning events for the New Year where we would like to get parents involved. Further information will follow shortly.
The ‘Hampton Futures’ career guidance team is in school on Mondays and Tuesdays, their office is in the library. Students are welcome to pop in at break or lunch to discuss their futures plans. Formal guidance sessions are offered to students in Year 9 and Year 11 as part of the Options and Post 16 programmes respectively.
