Hampton Gardens will provide an excellent education for young people from the local community in a safe, supportive learning environment, where people are valued and make positive contributions to the school, and where students go on to become responsible, independent members of society.
We believe that all our young people have the potential to achieve in school and succeed in life. Whatever their starting point no young person will be left behind. Excellent performance comes through effort, motivation and targeted interventions throughout the years of secondary education.
Hampton Gardens will provide a supportive but challenging environment where each pupil is expected to aim for the highest standard in all aspects of school life and beyond. Our new school will welcome students of diverse talents, needs and interests.
We will guide all our students to be aware of other people's needs within both the school and our wider community, to value those differences and to develop their own self-confidence and self-judgment.
Our commitment to you is that we will ensure that every child who joins Hampton Gardens will benefit from innovative and engaging teaching that will develop students understanding to a greater depth and provide them with the opportunities to achieve their goals.
The School will grow incrementally, preserving a very human scale. Our initial focus will be on excellence in the teaching of Key Stage 3. The first students and their families from our early years will play an active role in shaping the school, from getting involved in staff recruitment; to helping to shape the development of enrichment activities as we grow.
Eight core values underpin all aspects of our school life.
- We value people
- We value learning
- We value positive behaviour
- We value health
- We value leadership
- We value our community
- We value our environment
- We value the future
These values form the backbone of character and relationship education at Hampton Gardens. Students will leave our care understanding each of these values in depth and modelling them in later life.
