Beyond the Classroom: clubs and enrichment

We aim to make school life an exciting experience, offering learning opportunities for personal development, achievement and enjoyment. We want to provide an education for life, giving our students the knowledge, skills and values they need to become well-rounded and confident individuals.

Our energetic and inspirational staff offer a wide range of different clubs each term, catering to a myriad of interests. Taking part in clubs promotes building positive relationships with staff and enables friendships to form with pupils from other year groups, alongside developing their interests and expanding their horizons.

The school year at Hampton Court House is punctuated with a number of extra-curricular enrichment programmes. These include the Arctic Expedition and survival skills trips, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, Camp HCH, and Bikability. Complementing our innovative curriculum, a wide range of trips are also held throughout the year.

Given that some clubs are seasonal, our club programme varies throughout the year on a rotational basis, and we frequently review our offering and introduce new clubs to enable our pupils to try new experiences.
