Welcome from the Chair of Trustees

Welcome to Hampton Academies Trust

I am delighted to welcome you to the Hampton Academies Trust website. We currently have four schools, one all-through school, Hampton College, which is split between primary and secondary sites situated next to each other. Our secondary school Hampton Gardens, which opened to Year 7 students in September 2017 and now has all year groups (7-11). Our new primary, Hampton Lakes which opened with Reception class in September 2019, which now has nursery provision, Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and a joint Year 3/4 class and Dogsthorpe Infants School who joined the Trust on 1 December 2020.

The Trust currently predominantly serves the community of Hampton, on the southern outskirts of the city of Peterborough with good links to Cambridge and Stamford. Hampton Gardens and Hampton Lakes schools also serve the neighboring Cambridgeshire village of Yaxley and its surrounding areas, as well as the ongoing growth of the Hampton development. With the addition of Dogsthorpe Infants to the Trust in 2020, we are broadening our scope with like minded schools within the city.

Our overarching aim and vision is for our member schools to deliver an outstanding education for children and young people. We will ensure that all our pupils and students have access to the highest standards of teaching, resources and opportunities. Our role is to oversee the leadership and vision of our member schools and to develop partnerships between them. We encourage members of staff from our schools to meet together and share best practice, while our students will benefit from access to joint opportunities such as shared learning, trips and events, and working with a wider range of peers and teachers.

We are committed to ensuring that, by working in partnership, we offer an exceptional learning experience for all our students, preparing them for a successful future for the 21st century. We hope you enjoy reading about the Hampton Academies Trust and our vision for our schools.
