Hampton Senior High School has a proud tradition in our local community, built over 50 years, as an Independent Public School whose graduates are recognised for the strength of their character alongside the quality of their academic performance. The lure of our Gifted and Talented Dance Program and our accreditation as a Specialist School for Digital Technologies, Drama and Cheer Dance, attracts students from a wide range of schools across the State, with each adding to the diverse cultural, linguistic and aspirational nature of our school population.
What keeps the students here, helps them thrive and promotes pride in the oft-used phrase “We are Hampton” is the professional knowledge, practice and engagement of our staff who endeavour to ensure everyone has the chance to live our school vision – Aspire, Innovate, Achieve.
We have a commitment to ensure that our students have every opportunity to capitalise on their strengths to achieve success in their endeavours. Our diverse programmes readily prepare all students whether they pursue vocational, academic or specialist streams.
We have a commitment to ensuring that our students have access to nationwide essential systems and are well equipped to take advantage of the possibilities of new initiatives. Offering the possibility to explore real world learning that goes beyond the classroom.
Our Follow the Dream program for Aboriginal students and Cadet (Bush Rangers) program engage students in a variety of learning opportunities, providing them with activities and educational experiences to improve their engagement, performance and pride.
We utilise digital technologies as an integral component of learning and teaching programs safely and responsibly. Thoughtful use of technology throughout the curriculum improves engagement and encourages collaboration. It allows students to prepare for the fast paced digital world by developing their confidence, communication and leadership skills.
Our school offers your child a variety of specialist and enrichment programs. Our Gifted and Talented Dance Program is highly regarded and is one of only two such programs in the State.
We also offer Specialist Programs in Digital Technologies, Cheer Dance and Performing Arts (Drama). We also provide school-based enrichment programs in applied science, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and an athletics academy.
We are proud of our school community and the positive relationships we build to provide the base from which our academic and pastoral care initiatives achieve results. Connect with us and see how we inspire, innovate and achieve in all we do.

We wish our fantastic students every success and a great trip at the Australian Nationals for 'Subs in Schools' in NSW (qualifying after placing first and second at the state finals!).
During the afternoon students were reunited with their cartons for the first time in two weeks and worked on setting up their trade booths. Both HSHS teams have made some huge improvements since the state finals and the attention to detail stood out including the variety of cool merchandise and displays. We are very proud of the final result which is the result of some really hard work this term.
The early evening was spent on ROV repairs and finishing touches getting ready for tomorrow when the teams will be competing in their sea trials. Both teams finished the night with ROVs packed up and ready to get going with an early start and another long day on the horizon tomorrow.
Dinner choice was selected by birthday girl Bella. Happy Birthday Bella! ... See MoreSee Less
Do you ever wish that school taught you important things like how to fly like a bat 🦇 through the pitch-black night?

Have you ever imagined what it might be like to see the world through different eyes, a microscopic jumping spider for example?
