Welcome from the Headmaster

Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive.
But to be young was very heaven!

Some may question whether Wordsworth’s lines written over 200 years ago can be applied to world events today.

At Hampton Court House, we strive to equip our children with the emotional literacy they will require to negotiate the vicissitudes of life and thus to find happiness and fulfilment.

The School is distinctive in the weight we place on achieving fluency in other languages; we instil in all our pupils a firm cultural and artistic framework, which underpins all their academic studies. And we seek to empower our students with the confidence to express themselves effectively in both their public and private lives.

We work with sparkling young minds – which sometimes need to be channelled and which sometimes need to be given free rein. Such is the paradox of education – there are no rules. Original thought requires the ability to think beyond, to adapt, to change and to innovate. All this is quite different from that necessary and vital skill of passing examinations, where there most certainly are rules (they’re called ‘mark schemes’) to be followed.

The lively debate between the conflicting demands of the heart and mind shapes, and continues to shape, our thinking at Hampton Court House and consequently our approach to the children in our care.

Please do come and visit us. I like to think that here to be young is indeed very heaven.
