Welcome from Executive Headteacher

Welcome to Hampton Academies Trust

As Executive Headteacher for the Hampton Academies Trust, I work with all of our schools to ensure the best possible educational opportunities for children young people in the Hampton and Yaxley areas. There are Heads of School in each school/phase who are responsible for the day-to-day leadership as follows:-

Helen Price, Hampton College and Hampton Academies Trust

Paul Jones, Head of School, Hampton College Primary Phase

John Gilligan, Head of School, Hampton College Secondary Phase

Alastair Greenwood, Head of School, Hampton Gardens

Staff and students from our schools are encouraged to work closely together. We have created a shared leadership vision across the trust in order to ensure consistency and the sharing of effective practice.

In all of our schools I enjoy seeing our dedicated and innovative teachers and support staff teams work with each successive cohort of students/children, to shape the culture and ethos of our schools and to ensure that each individual feels valued and has the opportunity to contribute. We look forward to getting to know our new students/children each year and seeing them grow in confidence as they settle in.

Our vision is to establish our schools at the heart of our community and to equip our students to be responsible individuals, who are able to make a meaningful contribution to society. As Executive Headteacher, I am confident that our academy partnership will enable us to offer the best educational experiences for all learners. Visitors often comment on the positive relationships and the enthusiasm for learning they see in our schools. We hope that you will experience the welcoming, inclusive atmosphere when you visit any of our schools.

Governors and school leaders have considered what we really value in education, which is summed up in our motto: progress, partnership and pride. These values have been embedded since Hampton College first opened in 2005. We feel they have served us well and are just as relevant today.

Progress

We work hard to ensure that students receive excellent teaching, that the curriculum is relevant to their needs and that they receive all the support they need to fulfil their potential. We also believe very strongly in the importance of extra-curricular activities such as clubs and visits, as they develop values and qualities that are valuable in later life.

Partnership

We are determined that Hampton Academies Trust will continue to be known for its positive relationships: students/children work well with each other, and they enjoy good working relationships with staff, with a high level of mutual respect. The trust aims to develop strong relationships with its community, including other primary schools, neighbouring secondary schools, and local businesses.

We work hard to establish a partnership with parents/carers, and to ensure that they feel welcome at trust schools, and fully involved in their child’s education.

Pride

We expect the highest standards at all times. We want students/children to be proud of their own achievements and happy to receive awards from us. We expect students/children to wear their uniform with pride because we want them to show that being enrolled at one of our schools is something really special. As the trust moves forward, we hope that parents/carers, and the whole community, will be really proud of the work that goes on within our trust schools/
