We welcome your expression of interest in the post of Head of Science at Hampton High. Please find included the Job Description and Person Specification for the position.   

The successful applicant will be joining the school at a very exciting time from September 2018. We are ambitious for all of our students, whilst providing a nurturing environment for them. We are well-supported by families who share our determination in making Hampton High the local comprehensive school of choice. Since joining the school in September 2017, I have been impressed with the warmth and pride that students demonstrate in themselves and their school. The staff show an unfailing commitment to securing the best possible outcomes for all students in their care. We are confident that the school is on a clear trajectory to being securely good by the end of this academic year.

In summer 2017, our students were able to prove that hard work, resilience and commitment really pay off. Our GCSE results were the best the school has seen, with students achieving 62% 3 A*-C and level 4 and above in both English and English. This is a 22% improvement on the school’s previous headline figure of 40%. Our A level students secured results which ensured that they were successful in obtaining their choice of place at university, work or apprenticeship.

This post is crucial to reaching our aim of becoming a good and then outstanding school and will be a challenging and rewarding role.    

The successful applicant will be joining a committed team who set high expectations for their students and who support each other in achieving this.  

In 2017 Hampton High joined the Richmond West Schools Trust. This comprises a group of schools working together to improve outcomes for learners locally, led by Teddington and Waldegrave schools. This has brought an investment of time and resources to further support the improvement of the school. There is a full commitment to the professional development of our colleagues which we see as a crucial part of school improvement.
