Year 7 Transition

Year 7 Transition

We at Hampton understand that the move to high school can be both exciting and anxious time for students and their parents. Students who are enrolled to commence high school at Hampton are invited to attend an Orientation day in Term 4. Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend an information session at the school on the same morning.

 

The structure of the timetable for Year 7s is planned to reduce the worry of transition. This is done through having two main teachers who form the core of the Year 7 Community, for English/Humanities and Maths/Science instead of four. The students in this group, as in primary school, form closer bonds with their teachers who will teach the Year 7 curriculum, develop individual organisational and interpersonal skills and care for your child for the greater part of each week.

 

Students will also experience a range of other learning contexts with the Arts (Visual and Performing arts), Health and Physical Education, and Digital and Design Technologies which are semester long courses. Some students will be a part of Enrichment programs and this may vary their timetable.

 

We have a strong focus on expecting students to take responsibility for their learning by maintaining regular and punctual attendance, wearing our school uniform daily with pride, embracing our school culture of Aspire, Innovate, Achieve and follow our school Code of Conduct. In doing so, we are able to provide all students a safe learning environment and opportunities to grow and excel.
