Hampton Senior High School (4022)

School Overview

The Hampton Senior High School Vision is to develop culturally responsive, high impact educators who foster student aspiration, innovation and achievement.

Hampton is continuing on our improvement focus with our strong culture of collaboration and consistently high expectation of standards for staff and students. Continuing the journey of school excellence using the Dempster's School Improvement Framework in 2023, Hampton steps forward from the Fogarty EDvance Program and embraces the Department's Quality Teaching Strategy. This strategy supports the development of teaching excellence through evidence-based practice in quality teaching and improvements in teaching practice.

Our collaborative, evidence-based leadership and pedagogical model - The Hampton Blueprint, was developed via many feedback and data sources from staff, students and families, including the School Culture Survey, National School Opinion Surveys, whole school professional learning days, feedback from the Board, P&C and various school-based forums. Our Learning Area and Program Reports are centred on the Teach for Impact model, providing us with a shared position and understanding about what effective schools Believe, Know and Do. This, in turn, leads our quality teaching and learning plans for 2024, using data to determine what we plan, teach and assess to maximise outcomes for our diverse student population.

The implementation of the highly effective Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) program to our school improvement planning has resulted in a significant change in positive school culture and behaviour. Our whole school developed values of CORRE - Caring, Organised, Resilient, Respectful, Engaged - have provided staff and students with a common language, and behaviours that are explicitly taught. The goal of '5 positives to 1 negative' in teacher response saw us reach 3.85 positives:1 negative, a terrific result for our first year of PBS. We are very proud that this tremendous change has enabled our classrooms to showcase teaching and learning as our number one focus.

We have a range of sustainable community partnerships over many years including local primary schools, the Morley Schools Network, Vocational Education and Training (VET) Registered Training Organisations (RTO), ADWPL, TAFE and university partnerships. The Morley Salvation Army operates our Breakfast Club on Thursday mornings. The Bush Rangers W.A. program promotes environmental understanding, conservation actions along with team and leadership development for the cadets.
