Hampton Court House is an independent, co-educational day school in South West London. The school was founded in 2001 and offers places for children from the age of 3 to 18 years old. The school is situated in its own private parkland and is 35 minutes from Central London.
Hampton Court House pupils are truly made to feel a part of the school. They offer their own ideas and opinions and many school activities are pupil-led.
Pupils as young as 3 years of age have a weekly ballet lesson with a Royal Academy of Dance Ballet teacher as well as Forest School lessons in the grounds or in neighbouring Bushy Park with a qualified Forest School teacher.
The school follows the National Curriculum, the teaching staff are subject specialists who teach year groups across the school. In addition to the many subjects taught at Hampton Court House, languages such as French, Latin, Spanish and Mandarin are highly valued. Pupils have daily French lessons in the early years of the school and in Years 1 to 4 they are taught in a French/English immersion programme. Latin and Mandarin are introduced to pupils from Year 5, Spanish is also introduced in Year 9, giving pupils a breadth of languages to study in GCSE and A level years.
Students are encouraged to take part in co-curricular activities, clubs, and school trips. Many of the pupils are involved in charitable fundraising including a recent sponsored run for a Syrian refugee camp in France. In addition to sports on the timetable for all pupils from Pre-Nursery to Year 11 the pupils can take part in lunchtime and after school clubs and activities. The sports programme at Hampton Court House is tailor-made for its size and location with sports such as rowing, athletics and Olympic lifting offered to all pupils from Year 7 upwards.
Hampton Court House promotes an active engagement in media and current affairs, believing that it is important to have an opinion on the events and decisions which shape our world. A sense of humour and an understanding of the opinions and feelings of others encourages pupils to feel supported and nurtured. Every member of Hampton Court House strives to be honest, considerate, compassionate and generous.
Hampton Court House is a school which places an emphasis on kindness and values but also encourages pupils to strive for academic excellence. The trend of ever improving GCSE results has continued with a higher proportion than ever before getting A grades or equivalent. 78% of the GCSE results were 7, 8 or 9 on the new scale (where 7 is an A) and 46% were 8 or 9 (A*). Nationally, only 20.6% of grades were 7 or better and only 11.4% were 8 or 9.
In recent years Hampton Court House has been recognised by UNESCO for their commitment to transcending cultural boundaries. The school has received two TES Independent School nominations, two Good Schools Guide Awards, and a Computing in Schools: Network of Excellence award.
