All-round Excellence
Since 1557


The Hampton story begins: local brewer and successful businessman Robert Hammond makes provision in his will for the foundation of a Free School at St Mary's Church, Hampton-on-Thames. The School in its earliest form educated no more than 20 pupils


Recognised as a grammar school in the 1600s, Hampton outgrows the site in the grounds of St Mary's Church and relocates to Upper Sunbury Road


The iconic Mulberry Tree was planted. Relocated to the current site 15 years later, the tree still stands proudly in the Cloisters


The School relocates from Sunbury Road to its current Hanworth Road site, opening in early September 1939 and immediately closing to allow modifications to the site following the outbreak of the Second World War. The grounds at the front of the School make way for air raid shelters, allotments and even a pig farm!


Following national and local education reforms, Hampton reverts to being an independent school, preserving the Sixth Form and retaining academic selection. The best elements of the Hampton Grammar ethos remain evident in the modern day School.


Celebrations mark Hampton's 450 anniversary and building starts on the 450 Hall (later re-named The Hammond Theatre) which continues to serve as a state-of-the-art venue for School and local community use


Denmead prep school, which joined the Hampton Trust in 1999, is renamed Hampton Pre-Prep & Prep School


The Fitzwygram Foundation is established with one simple but transformative aim: to increase the number of Free Places available to boys whose families could not otherwise access a Hampton education
