Impact Statement

Serious Fun on Saturdays

We run a popular ‘Serious Fun on Saturdays’ programme for Year 5 boys from local state-maintained primary schools. These pupils very much enjoy lessons in Maths, English, DT, Science, Computer Programming and other subjects run by members of Hampton School’s Common Room and supported by some of our Lower Sixth Form pupils. Here are some of the comments from parents at the end of the course:

“The scheme has given my son the ability to focus, think differently and to be a recipient to new environments, working in teams and individually. Learning new languages and performing science experiments has broadened the spectrum of his confidence and knowledge . . . He has had a great experience and great memories in the last few months.”

“The project has made my son a better person in general and he’s improved a lot in his attitude to work and his learning in school.”

“My son has thoroughly enjoyed his Saturday lessons – he comes home and tells us all about what he has learned. He has always loved learning and this experience has allowed him extra opportunities to learn in new ways and expand his knowledge and understanding.”

“It really has been an amazing opportunity for my son to experience new aspects of Science, History, Languages, English and Maths in a really fun and engaging way. He has come home from each and every session brimming over with enthusiasm for what he has learnt and bursting to show us a new Maths trick or what he has learnt to say in Spanish. . . . I think the course has given him more confidence and I think it will help in making the transition to secondary school less daunting.”


Seconding staff to teach pupils from local primary and secondary schools

Four members of our Common Room have been teaching Science at four local primary schools and secondary schools. Matt White, Head Teacher of St Mary’s CE Primary School said, “Since entering into a partnership with Hampton School, we have benefitted from the expertise of a regular science teacher, which has significantly enhanced the delivery of our science curriculum, which was highly praised in a recent external review.”

James Owen, Deputy Headteacher at Hampton High writes, “The ten GCSE students who have been visiting Hampton School on a Friday afternoon have benefitted from having targeted revision sessions covering key elements of the exam topics. The sessions have been well run and we are grateful for the time that has been given planning and delivering them to our students. What has been especially pleasing is the fact that the teachers have asked the students the areas they want to cover so that they can get as much as possible out of the sessions.”


Schools for pupils with additional needs

Hampton enjoys longstanding partnerships with two local schools for pupils with additional needs. Annual trips to destinations including Legoland and The Lookout Centre in Bracknell are a highlight of the year. Pupils from Hampton also visit one of these schools at play time each week. Su Woodhouse, Key Stage 3 Leader at one of these schools, writes “The kind and caring way the older students interact and work with our students is a pleasure to be part of. May this partnership continue for many years to come.”


Shooting Star Chase Hospice

We host monthly meetings for the Youth Group of our local children’s hospice. These meetings use a range of the School’s facilities and some of our pupils attend to socialise with the young people from the hospice. Alissa Colucci-Jones writes “Our relationship with Hampton School has successfully developed since collaborating to run a youth group. The teenagers from the hospice have gained confidence from establishing relationships with the pupils from the School, and have experienced activities which may not have otherwise been available to them. The staff have always been proactive in meeting our needs to ensure inclusivity, and go above and beyond expectations to facilitate the monthly events.”


Football Association Disability Talent Hub

The South East Football Association Disability Talent Hub uses Hampton’s sports facilities as a training base for young footballers who are visually impaired, deaf, or have cerebral palsy. The Lead Coach, Jon Whittingham, writes “We have been made to feel so welcome and having the backing of the School has made a significant difference to what we are able to offer the players within the FA programme. It is unquestionably the best venue in the country being used within the talent programme. I hope going forwards we can continue to further this partnership which is supporting some of the best disability footballers in the region.”
