Step into the classroom and see just how enjoyable teaching and learning can be. Engaging with lively and intellectually curious young minds, we join Hampton's Maths, Chemistry, History, Music, English and Modern Languages teachers who all think they have the best job in the world. Enjoy joining our classes - and we hope you learn lots along the way.

The Power of Poetry

Join English teacher Mr Baker sharing his love of poetry with Third Year and Sixth Form Hamptonians. He says: on a purely human level, alongside the joy of reading a superb book – I cannot think of a more enjoyable way of better understanding yourself and the world in which we live. Poetry is about human nature and society – in most cases exploring how we think, feel, and behave towards others in every imaginable context and circumstance.

Building Batteries on Chemistry

Second Year and Upper Sixth Formers are in the Chemistry laboratory building their own batteries. Around since 1799, batteries are everywhere in our day-to-day life and could be key to moving away from fossil fuels for transportation and power generation - an essential topic for all our young chemists.

Loving Languages

Hola, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Ni Hao, Privet! Step into the Modern Languages Department for a flavour of how we teach French, German, Mandarin, Russian and Spanish at Hampton. It's all about the spoken word and most Hamptonians leave school able to converse in at least one language thanks to our brilliant teachers who are passionate about young people connecting and engaging with the world around them.

The Magic of Maths

In this episode of 'Discover Hampton', we meet Hampton teacher Mr Griller whose love of Maths is infectious. Today’s lesson is all about combinatorics – a kind of clever counting! Join us in the classroom as Mr Griller shows his pupils how to apply strategies and short cuts to help them count without actually needing to do all the hard work – why not have a go at the questions yourself?

Marvellous Music

COMING SOON: Making music together is at the heart of teaching music at Hampton and there is nothing better than active learning and the buzz of performing with like-minded individuals. Unlocking the wonder of music for young people reaps so many rewards as we can see as we join First Years and Lower Sixth Hamptonians in two very different music lessons.

Unravelling History

COMING SOON: Mary, Mary, quite contrary! Nursery rhymes take on a whole new meaning in Hampton's history classes. Our Second Years and Upper Sixth Formers step back in time to investigate Mary 1 - aka Bloody Mary. Tasked with unearthing all the facts, Hamptonians discovered that England's first female monarch may not have deserved all her bad press.
