About Hampton School
Hampton is one of the country’s leading, most successful and best-resourced independent schools, where we have been helping boys to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations for more than 460 years. We are a lively, friendly and caring School community, in which innovative teaching is underpinned by strong shared values and complemented by outstanding pastoral care. We aspire to enable our boys not only to make sense of the world but also to want to go out and improve it. Hamptonians are expected to aspire to personal best while supporting those around them with kindness.
Our pupils’ public examination results and university entrance record consistently rank among the best achieved anywhere. Around 95% of Hampton leavers go on each year to undergraduate courses at Russell Group universities; 20-30 Hamptonians are offered places at Oxford and Cambridge annually and 20% of our Class of 2021 attend global top-10 universities. An increasing number of our leavers go on to study at US Ivy League universities, often on academic and/or sporting scholarships. Our alumni network is extremely strong and former pupils remain very interested in their School, in no small part due to the exceptionally warm and mutually respectful relationships enjoyed between Hampton staff and pupils. Situated on a greenfield site in a leafy suburb of South West London,
Hampton benefits from over 27 acres of playing fields within spacious grounds; a generous investment programme ensures that pupils and staff benefit from first-class facilities across all areas of School life. These include a state-of-the-art 3G sportsground, a large Sports Hall and the Hammond Theatre, along with an excellent library and specialist facilities for Art, Music, Science, Technology, IT and Languages. We have recently opened a superb Sixth Form Study and Careers Centre. The Millennium Boat House, shared with our neighbouring girls’ school, Lady Eleanor Holles (LEH), enjoys a prime location on the nearby River Thames and provides the focal point for our renowned Boat Club. Visitors from the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) concluded in March 2016 that Hampton’s academic and all-round excellence merited the rarely-awarded ISI assessment of pupils’ achievements and learning being ‘Exceptional’. The inspection team’s findings in all other areas were similarly pleasing and the highest possible judgements were received across the board. A further Regulatory Compliance Inspection in 2019 reported the School to be fully compliant. A copy of the full ISI reports can be found on the School website.
We hope you share our vision for an inspiring, modern and forward-thinking liberal education, we invite you to apply to teach at Hampton. A warm, sincere and personal welcome awaits you from prospective colleagues and boys alike.
