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.
