Our School

Message from the Principal

Welcome to Hampton SHS

Welcome to the Hampton Senior High School website.

 

Our school motto Labor Omnia Vincit (“Hard work conquers all”) and our school vision “Aspire.  Innovate. Achieve” are the standards upon which all practice at the school is assessed, reviewed and remodelled as we strive to ensure that all of our students maximise their opportunities for success academically and socially. 

 

Alongside our rigorous curriculum, with programs tailored to individual needs, we offer many specialist and enrichment programs aimed at enhancing performance of students with gifted skills. As a result we offer a Department of Education endorsed Gifted & Talented Dance program, along with programs in Information Communication Technology, Performing Arts, Cheer Dance, Applied Science and Athletics Academy. Our staff are regularly involved with the professional development in these areas of teachers and administrators in other schools in both Metropolitan and Rural settings. 

We have an extensively qualified Student Services team who look after all the pastoral care needs of our student population. This team consists of a Student Services manager, a specific Year Coordinator for each cohort, Attendance Officer, AEIO, Youth Workers, Education Assistants, Community Nurse and a full time Psychologist. 

 

2015 was our first year as an Independent Public School.  We are currently formulating our School Plan for 2021- 2024, whilst Hampton SHS is strongly supported by our School Board. 

 

We also have an extremely dedicated parent body and any new parents to the school are encouraged to speak with us about their involvement with our Parents and Citizens group. Our P&C has a very important role to play in the school and has been instrumental in ensuring community and government support for upgrades to our facilities such as the Science lab refurbishments, the excellent performing arts facilities available in the Eric Strauss Performing Arts Centre, funding towards the Specialist ICT building and major refurbishments of the school canteen. 

 

Our teaching staff have been merit selected and are all specialists in their fields with many holding  Senior Teacher status with a growing list Of Level 3 Classroom Teachers.  

 

The future for Hampton Senior High School is a bright one and I encourage you to become a part of our growing community as a student, parent volunteer or community champion. 

 

If you have further enquiries as a result of your tour of our website please do not hesitate to call our reception on 6235 7100 to arrange for a visit or interview with one of our helpful staff. I look forward to seeing you at one of our many events as the year unfolds. 

 

Kind Regards,

Steven Beaton
