Launched in the Summer Term of 2022, the Future Researchers Programme © at Hampton Court House has been specially designed to provide Year 12 students with training in academic research and authoring skills.

Having been selected as a Founding Partner School by Nebula Research, this partnership offers our students a unique opportunity to work with leading academics on research projects, who guide and support our students to become published academic authors. Students form into small teams to write a research paper under the tutelage of a professor.

The papers are based on a topic selected by the students themselves with guidance from their Lead Professor. With an overarching focus on global citizenship, their papers allow our students to give back to the wider community.

Participating students have their work published by Nebula Research and they are provided with an individual reference from the Professor leading their work, significantly enhancing their academic prospects at university and beyond.
