Black and British by David Olusoga is a brilliant book that everyone would benefit from reading. It is particularly good for a younger audience. Olusoga describes it as "the book I wish I had been given to read when I was at school". https://t.co/IlxIYBFIXR

Student Council

Hampton High believe it is important to give our students the opportunity to develop and demonstrate their leadership skills. Everyone can get involved and take part, opportunities for leadership start in Year 7 and continue throughout the school. As students’ progress through school, they will have the opportunity to:

  • coach others, including primary school children
  • represent school as match officials, in a range of sport and fitness activities
  • become prefects and Head Boy or Head Girl
  • sit on interview panels for new staff
  • attend leadership programmes and training
  • lead year group and younger students

The role of the Hampton High School Council is to listen to and represent the views of all students in our school. The Hampton High School Council are keen to make a significant contribution to improving the overall achievement of students and ensure they have a rich, varied and enjoyable experience while they are here and that they are given the opportunity to express themselves, formulate arguments, represent the views of others and feedback to their peers. 

Our Vision

In recent years the members of the Student Council have discussed and agreed on the values which reflect their vision:-

  • We are loyal
  • We are trustworthy
  • We are helpful
  • We are constructive
  • We are determined
  • We are friendly
  • We are supportive
  • We are here together
  • We are listening

All of the above link to the whole school values of Aspiration, Resilience, Respect and Collaboration. 

How is the School Council organised?

There are 4 Senior Prefects and two Head Students. They are the face of the School Council and can be seen speaking at school events, supporting local activities, taking assemblies and meeting parents at the various consultation meetings. They lead all the School Council activities and meetings and plan events that take place in school. They are supported by year 11 prefects and representatives from each form group.

The Head Students and Prefects can be seen out and about across the school supporting in the library, supervising during break and lunch, helping the admin team and helping to run clubs and activities for different departments. All students have opportunities to take part in student voice, participate in teaching and learning activities and reviews, sit on interview panels and become ambassadors for key issues that affect everyone in school. 

How does it work?

Each form has a representative; form tutors discuss and debate key topics during the week. In the past students have been instrumental in developing the changes to the school uniform, the school facilities, learning and teaching tasks and even the names of the 3 school buildings! 

The reps met together every few weeks with other reps in their year group to discuss any issues or ideas relating to them. A Senior Prefect is allocated to each year group to collect findings support this discussion. There is also an opportunity for reps from each year group to meet together to review issues that effect students across the school.

The Senior Prefects meet with the Senior Leadership team to discuss the issues that students bring to the meetings and share their ideas for future activities and events. The Senior Prefects also take assemblies and always contribute to the celebration assemblies at the end of each term.

Year 11 can choose to be general prefects and support different tasks around the school. 

Come and join us!

Leadership opportunities like these provide students with the chance to develop their decision making skills, strengthen understanding of commitment and responsibility, nurture heightened self-esteem, all arising from earning the respect of their peers and staff, as well as developing the personal, emotional and social skills to support all of our students to enable them to thrive as members of the community and succeed in the workplace.

The Senior Prefects are keen to involve as many students as possible so are creating new roles and responsibilities all of the time. Everyone can be involved!
