Integral to our curriculum is a wide range of educational experiences that extend beyond the classroom door. The Hampton Court House curriculum offers a series of educational journeys that deepen the students’ understanding of the world around them. Trips extend students’ knowledge of past and present. We encourage international travel even at the youngest age, by inviting parents to join us on trips to France with their young children. Our experience is that students forge strong bonds of friendship during the trips, and their respect for one another grows as a result of sharing the experiences.

Ben Ruddin, is responsible for facilitating these opportunities and ensuring they are accessible to all.

Middle Years Adventure 2019

Pupils from Years 5 to 8 enjoyed an action-packed weekend of mountain biking, climbing, activity trails, and kayaking when they went on their Middle Years adventure at Avon Tyrell in the New Forest. Pupils and teachers took part in activities that encouraged them to step out of their comfort zone and... socialise across the various year groups as they learned new skills from the Avon Tyrell instructors. In the evenings the group would gather round the campfire to share stories and on the last night of the trip they were treated to a disco in the Grade 1 listed house that plays host to the outdoor activity centre. Despite the cold and blustery weather the middle years pupils demonstrated grit and determination as they tackled the outdoor pursuits. They would cheer each other on during the obstacle courses and wall climbs and help one another in and out of boats and to find their balance during kayaking. Most importantly the students returned to school having created lifelong memories.
