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.

Middle Years Enrichment Afternoon 

On Wednesday afternoon, the Middle Years students took part in activities and challenges that were different from their usual everyday lessons. The afternoon comprised a social challenge, a creative challenge and a physical one. We were delighted by how well the students engaged in these activities.... They baked, exercised, played music, and best of all they reached out to someone in their community whom they identified as being lonely during lockdown or who deserved a thank you.

Sophia, in Year 5, baked cookies for her elderly neighbour and brought them to her. She also wrote “Be Happy Like a Puppy” using calligraphy for her creative challenge.

Khalil, in Year 7, made a beautiful card and wrote a letter to his neighbour who lives opposite him, and who is on her own.

Alexander, in Year 7, also made a card and brought some flowers to his neighbour who lives alone.

Ulani, in Year 7, made a card and cookies for the concierge who has always been helpful and kind to her family.

Thank you to all the Middle Years students for their hard work, and their parents and form tutors who made this possible: giving the students a chance to have a productive break in their busy Zoom routine and time away from their screens.

Hampton Court House shortlisted for Senior School of the Year in TES Independent School Awards 2020


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.

Hampton Court House, which has been hurtling up the rankings in recent years, picking up two Good Schools Guide awards for some... of the best GCSE results in the UK, and topping the Independent Schools Council league table for ‘small independent schools’, has been shortlisted this year by the TES for the title of Senior School of the Year.

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
