Life at Hampton High is about much more than lessons. There is a comprehensive enrichment programme that caters for all interests and skills. Our aim is to see every young person involve themselves in at least one activity beyond their curriculum. Our enrichment programme plays a key role in our approach to wider learning.
Highlights of the enrichment programme include the shows run by the Performing Arts department and a fully comprehensive and inclusive programme of sporting activities run by the PE department.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award is also a very popular activity on offer for KS4 students. Students commit for 3 or 6 months to learning a new skill, playing sport and completing charity work as well as completing an independent walking expedition. This is an excellent addition to their school program.
We also very much value the learning experiences that trips and visits can bring. Part of our curriculum guarantee is for all of our students to access a range of cultural, sporting and educational opportunities. It is important that students gain understanding in context, and we encourage departments to plan trips that relate to the curriculum, to enhance students' knowledge of the subject.
Additionally, we encourage outside speakers and groups to visit the school. We have welcomed visitors from universities across the country, along with hosting visiting theatre groups and inviting inspirational speakers into school to present.
