Members of the Fourth Year volunteer weekly at lunchtimes in local primary schools to help with reading classes and maths for children. Boys in the Sixth Form also carry out one timetabled six week block of community service as part of their Curriculum Enrichment periods.
Hampton offers its sports facilities to the local community, for example by providing tennis courts for use by coaches of young children. Hampton also puts on events such as the annual Primary and Prep Schools Five-a-side Tournament for over 20 schools in the local area
The Independent State Secondary Partnership was set up to link Hampton School and The Lady Eleanor Holles School with five local maintained secondary schools.
We facilitate GCSE revision courses for pupils at the A*/A and C/D boundaries during the Spring Term and May Half Term for over 100 maintained school students. All courses are free to the pupils and are entirely funded by ISSP
Gifted and Talented Days
The partnership schools run a range of days for Gifted and Talented students from different year groups (Years 1-5) in a variety of subjects. For example Hampton School runs a very successful Science Day for Year 9 pupils and, with the assistance of The Lady Eleanor Holles School, hosts an inspiring Music Day for choir and orchestra.
In a direct link between Hampton School and the maintained co-educational secondary school, Hampton Academy, Sixth Formers from Hampton and LEH mentor GCSE students at the C/D grade boundary: our students support them on a weekly basis as they work to achieve the C grades valued by universities and employers alike.
In co-operation with other schools, Hampton boys put on a variety of music and drama performances. These are of a very high standard and proceeds from these performances are often donated to charity.
Hampton School runs Serious Fun on Saturdays; a programme of free enrichment lessons in Maths and English to Year 5 boys from local Primary Schools. It is aimed primarily at disadvantaged children, where possible.
The programme runs for 13 weeks from November through to March and in addition to Maths and English there are fun lessons in Physics, Chemistry, DT, Art, Spanish and Classics.
The lessons are taught by Hampton School teachers, supported by Sixth Form boys who act as Classroom Assistants.
Eight local primary schools are involved in the programme:
- Buckingham Primary
- Forge Lane Primary
- Crane Park Primary
- Hampton Junior
- Hampton Hill Junior
- Heathfield Junior
- Oriel Academy West London
- Stanley Primary
As an extension to the Saturday School programme we also run six specialist Mathematics classes between February and May for Year 6 boys who make excellent progress in Maths during the Saturday School programme.
