About Hampton School
Hampton is one of the country’s foremost independent schools for boys and for nearly 460 years, has been helping boys to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations. We are delighted that our examination results and university entrance record consistently rank among the very best achieved anywhere. Hampton is a lively, friendly and caring community, where innovative teaching is underpinned by strong shared values and complemented by truly 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.
The remarkable range of co-curricular activities on offer here provides each boy with the opportunity to shine and the means to explore new interests. Nearly all leavers go on to undergraduate courses at elite UK universities or medical schools. Around 30 Hampton boys gain places at Oxford and Cambridge each year; an increasing number go on to study at American Ivy League universities, often on academic and sporting scholarships.
Situated on a greenfield site in a leafy suburb of South West London we are fortunate to have over 27 acres of playing fields within our spacious grounds and a continual investment programme ensures that our pupils enjoy the use of excellent facilities. These include a state-of-the-art all-weather 3G sports ground, a large sports hall and The Hammond Theatre, our exceptional library and specialist facilities for Art, Science, Technology, ICT and Languages and we are looking forward to the opening of our new Sixth Form Centre in 2018. The Millennium Boat House, shared with neighbouring Lady Eleanor Holles, enjoys a prime location on the nearby River Thames and provides the focal point for our internationally renowned and highly successful Boat Club.
If you share our vision for an inspiring, modern and exciting education, we invite you to apply to teach at Hampton. A warm, sincere and personal welcome awaits you from prospective colleagues and boys alike.
