Hampton is one of the founding partners of Feltham College, a pioneering sixth form for Feltham.
Opening in September 2022, Feltham College is an exciting new model of post-16 education, which brings together a powerful partnership of education, business and health service providers to broaden choices for local young people and offer them transformative opportunities. Feltham College will be a centre of academic and vocational excellence at the heart of the town, playing a key role in rejuvenating a historically deprived area that has experienced significant pandemic-related job losses.
Courses at the new college will range from traditional A Levels which will be supported by Hampton and LEH, to professional qualifications in music, catering, health and social care. The innovative approach taken could provide a helpful blueprint for other areas of the UK seeking to boost their post-16 provision.
Situated in Feltham town centre, the new sixth form college campus will be affiliated to Reach Academy, Feltham – already renowned as a ground-breaking local education provider. In addition to classrooms and laboratories, facilities will include a restaurant and café, music rehearsal rooms and production studios, allowing pupils on vocational courses to gain real-life work experience.
Alongside Reach Academy, Hampton and Lady Eleanor Holles (LEH), other partners include Kingston University and East London Arts & Music Academy, as well as Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and award-winning London restaurateur Jacob Kenedy.
