Hampton High has been hailed as a good school following an inspection by Ofsted last month.
This is the first time in the school ‘s history that it has been rated ‘good’ by Ofsted.
Ofsted had particular praise for the school’s pupil behaviour, teachers’ subject knowledge, the clarity of its overall vision and its focus on ensuring all its pupils are making strong progress in their education.

Hampton High joined the Richmond West Schools Trust (RWST) in 2016. Since Hampton High moved to RWST there has been a focus on teaching and learning, behaviour and school standards. Leaders, staff and students have been working together with Governors and Trustees to develop great systems which enable students to achieve their full potential
Cllr Penny Frost, Richmond Council Cabinet Member for Children’s Services and Schools said:
“Congratulations to Hampton High on a fantastic Ofsted result! It is a credit to the hard work done by the teachers, students, parents and everyone involved in the running of the school that they have improved across all fields.
“I am particularly impressed that the powerful vision of the school has been praised which sets Hampton High up for continued success going forward.”
Rebecca Poole, Headteacher at Hampton High said:
“We are enormously proud of what has been achieved at Hampton High. Being officially recognised as a good school across all categories shows that Hampton High has the leadership and unwavering purpose from the entire school community to move on to an even brighter future.
“What is most important, is that the local community has the good school that it deserves. Local families can now be sure that Hampton High offers a high standard of education and a secure future for their children, with this Ofsted judgement a testimony to the sustained hard work and determination of the school. Through working in partnership with families, and unifying the staff through the leadership’s clarity of vision, the school is now firmly on a journey to becoming outstanding.”
