Hampton Pre-Prep & Prep School is regularly inspected by The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI). This is the body approved by the government for the purpose of inspecting schools belonging to the Independent Schools Council.
The latest inspection took place in March 2016 and we are delighted with the findings. See below for some of the highlights of the report and the option to see the findings in full:
Hampton Pre-Prep and Prep School is highly successful in meeting its aims. The achievements of the pupils are excellent. Pupils display high levels of numeracy and literacy, and all ability groups make excellent progress throughout the school. Pupils benefit from excellent pastoral care. A close and nurturing atmosphere is at the heart of the school. Strong support systems are in place and pupils feel their voice is heard and valued.
An extensive programme of visits and visiting speakers enriches the curriculum for pupils of all ages, and residential trips in Years 3 to 6 contribute greatly to the pupils’ educational experience and personal development.
Throughout the school, teaching is a strong contributory factor to the pupils’ excellent achievement. Teachers have excellent subject knowledge and are passionate about delivering it. Teachers create an excellent rapport with their pupils, which instils in them a respect for one another, a thirst for learning and the confidence to contribute.
The school actively promotes its core values of participation, respect and commitment. Consequently, pupils of all ages are confident, emotionally mature for their age, and have a well-developed sense of themselves and an appreciation of others. They have an excellent level of personal development by the time they leave the school.
Governors strongly promote the school’s aim to provide a challenging and stimulating education by investing in high-quality staff and resources. The substantial investment in new, state-of-the-art accommodation for the preparatory pupils reflects the governors’ careful planning.
The quality of leadership and management, including links with parents, carers and guardians is excellent. This reflects the commitment of the leadership to encourage a supportive and stimulating environment where everyone’s opinion is respected.
