Hampton is one of the leading academic schools in the UK and our examination results are amongst the best in the country. Subject teachers, Heads of Year, pastoral staff and our Examinations Office all work together to ensure that Hampton boys are fully prepared for the internal and public examinations that they will take throughout their time at the School.
Pupils at Hampton take a range of GCSE and IGCSE examinations. Departmental Heads continuously review and assess the examinations on offer and select those which they feel are best suited to stretch and broaden Hampton pupils.
IGCSE and GCSE public examinations are taken in the Fifth Year, however able mathematics pupils take the examination a year early to allow them the opportunity to study for a Free Standing Maths Qualification (FSMQ).
In common with the great majority of academically selective schools we believe that the reformed A Levels currently offer the best post-16 education model. Many of our boys also take the challenging and highly respected Pre-U qualification, which, like the reformed A Levels, is a linear examination (i.e. all examinations are taken at the end of the Upper Sixth).
