Welcome back

Thank you for making sure that the students have had such a good start to this new academic year. We have welcomed many new families to our school community and our Year 7 students form the biggest year group in the school now. It has been wonderful to see how well they are adapting to life with us. They look really smart and seem to be thoroughly enjoying life here at Hampton High. What has been particularly impressive is the way the older students are going out of their way to look after the younger students. They are a real credit to you, their families.
 
Although we have only been back in school for a week, much has happened already.
 
We had our first ever Prizegiving on Wednesday evening. This was a real celebration, with families, for students who achieved well at the end of Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4, as well as those who made significant contributions to the school within each year group. This is an event we anticipate scheduling annually. Schools are very busy places and we must remember to celebrate those students who quietly shine and go beyond what is expected. 
 
We also hosted a successful visit from our new School Improvement Partner (SIP) Maggie Bailey, who is the Headteacher at Greycourt. Maggie spent the day with us on Tuesday, along with her Deputy who is also a trained Ofsted Inspector. They went into lessons, spoke to staff and students, ate lunch with us in Kipling and forensically analysed our internal school review. Although we have not yet had the written report, the experience was very positive and helpful for us in ensuring that we continue to make good progress. As always, the students shone. They were praised for the pride they demonstrate in being a member of Hampton High, the way they wore their uniform and how articulate they were about their learning when spoken with. Once again our students have done us proud!
 
As you may know, our students achieved the best ever GCSE results this summer, with 66% achieving the benchmark of grade 4+ in English and maths, which was above the target we had set ourselves. Along with the 22% of grades awarded at 7 and above, including 29 grade 9s, this continues the trajectory of consistently improving academic progress. It is difficult to believe that just two years ago the headline figure was 40%. 
 
We are already hard at work to build further on this achievement and are grateful for your support. As a truly inclusive comprehensive school, we want to ensure that every child is able to progress well and secure the outcomes they need to go on to lead a happy and fulfilled life.
 
Thank you for your continued support throughout this academic year. Should you wish to enquire about other ways in which you may be able to contribute further to school life, please look out for messages from the Friends of Hampton High and also our Governing Body. We are extremely lucky to be able to draw on such high quality support as this.
 
Finally, I should like to thank you and your children for such a positive start to this academic year at Hampton High.
 
Ms Poole, Headteacher
