We are Hampton

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.

For more information about the Indigenous Apprenticeship Program and to apply, visit for the 2022 Indigenous Apprenticeships Program close this Friday!

We’re looking for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who want to make a difference to the lives of Australians. The program starts in June 2022.

You can create your own story with the IAP, just like Liv.

She is a Wiradjuri Woman from the Mudgee area and had been working as a casual employee before she applied for the IAP. ‘I just knew I needed to do it. I had never worked in such a supportive environment and I knew this is what I wanted.’

‘Because of my experience, when I started the apprenticeship, I had the opportunity to train my fellow apprentices. This connection was amazing and definitely helped the new recruits feel much more comfortable, both in their work and personally. I’m now working as a team leader delivering services for older Australians.’

‘What I love most about working for Services Australia is the support team is around you no matter where you go. Everyone is friendly and always ready to lend a hand if need be,’ Liv said.

Liv’s advice for anyone thinking about applying for the IAP is to jump in and do it! She says, ‘it is a life changing experience and can provide unexpectedly amazing experiences. The skills I have developed in such a short amount of time are incredible.’

Applications for the 2022 IAP close on 29 October 2021.
