Pastoral Care

The Head of Pastoral Care has overall responsibility for the pastoral needs of the students in the school. He is also in charge of school discipline; this is because we seek to avoid a culture of rules and sanctions. We always consider disciplinary issues in the context of the ‘whole person’, in order that good behaviour be internalised ‘from within’, rather than being imposed through fear of punishment.

An important aspect of Hampton Court House is the extent to which our children form friendships outside their year group. This is something we actively promote. Through the Student Council, older students formalise structures to help younger students get the most from their time in school.

We want all our students to look forward to coming to school each morning and to return home in good spirits each afternoon.
