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.

Activities Day Upper Years Indoor Rock Climbing and Golf

Activities Day provided an opportunity for some Upper Years pupils to test their nerves (and their muscles) whilst climbing at White Spider. Following our climb, pupils had a chance to practise their swing at the driving range. It was a great opportunity for pupils to try a new sport and put themselves out of their comfort zone. There was a lot of enthusiasm and determination from the group and even some Lee Westwood-esque swings in the mix!

Y2 and Y3 Trip to Kidzania

The Year 2 and Year 3 children had an amazing time in Kidzania. While some chose to study at university first, others started working right away! They all had a lot of fun working as a pilot, cabin crew, fire fighter, fashion stylist, surgery team, reporter.

It was great to see them make choices and... decide for themselves what they wanted to do. They used their maths skills to figure out what they could buy with the money they earned at the shop. They loved it and asked to go back every Friday!

Treasure Hunt in Richmond Park

Today several students from Years 8-12 had a fantastic time solving a treasure hunt around Richmond Park. The groups had to have their Sherlock Holmes thinking caps on and they had to work together to solve a series of mysteries using the given clues. At the top of King Henry VIII’s mound, we peered... through a telescope through the bushes to see St Paul’s Cathedral which is over 10 miles away! There was a positive energy within the group despite cycling over 20km, including tackling some steep climbs.
