Co-curricular

Hampton Court house has an extensive and diverse co-curricular programme which runs throughout the school from Early Years to Sixth Form. We have a wide base of clubs and societies which evolve to meet the needs of our students. If a student has a particular interest that they would like to pursue, foster or propagate then we will do what we can to help them. We encourage students to take part in at least one club a term with most choosing to do more.

The most outstanding individuals and institutions that the independent sector has to offer have been recognised in the shortlist for the 2020 TES Independent School Awards.

TES editor Ann Mroz said, “we received an unparalleled number of entries this year. The schools that have been shortlisted should be proud – it’s a remarkable achievement In reaching the shortlist”. TES judges took into account not only HCH’s excellent examination results but also the School’s innovative approach to Sixth Form education in pioneering a ‘later start’ to accommodate adolescent circadian rhythms, as well as the school’s commitment to providing daycare provision for the babies and toddlers of teachers.

Guy Holloway said: “Hampton Court House is both traditional and forward-looking; our exam results and ‘value added’ are amongst the best in the country and we have achieved this by making a number of small incremental improvements in every aspect of school life. It is wonderful for our pupils and staff and to have this hard work recognised by the Times Education Supplement in our shortlisting for Senior School of the Year. “

The winners will be revealed at a gala awards evening at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London on Friday 7 February 2020

Pupils in Years 12 and 13 are being coached in non-contact boxing as part of the Autumn term clubs programme at Hampton Court House. Director of Sport, Roy Headey, is working with the small group of sixth formers to build their technique as well as giving them all important instruction in hand-wrapping... and conduct to ensure all the students are safe. Each sixth form boxer is given their own wraps and gloves as part of the programme and they follow a specially crafted programme which will guide them through basic technique before moving on to more complex combinations.
