Hamptonians are friendly, lively and unpretentious.

Our School is a community where success is based upon aspiring to personal best rather than the pursuit of narrowly-defined targets.

We welcome academically-minded boys from both maintained and independent schools, irrespective of ethnic group and background, and of their religious or non-religious beliefs.

We encourage every Hamptonian to develop their full academic potential and to develop skills for life through the wide range of cultural, spiritual and sporting opportunities on offer.

We believe that education is not only about acquiring knowledge and skills, but also the development of a spirit of intellectual enquiry in a caring, stimulating and enjoyable environment.

We aspire to enable our pupils not only to make sense of the world, but also to want to improve it and make a difference for good.

Above all, we want Hamptonians to be open-minded, tolerant and full of conviction, to have a clear sense of right and wrong, and to aim for personal best while supporting those around them with kindness and respect.
