School Sports Co-ordinator: Miss Naomi Napier
Hampton College is still working in partnership with Stanground Academy. Hampton College Primary Phase, Hampton Vale and Hampton Hargate all form part of the Hampton cluster of schools. Hampton College Primary Phase have signed up for the Primary Sports Partnership Agreement with Stanground which is paid for by the Sports Premium Funding. Hampton Vale and Hampton Hargate Primary School have signed up to take part in the primary sports festival programme.
A School Sport Co-ordinator (SSCo) is based in a secondary school and plays a leading role in the delivery of the Partnership Development Plan for the feeder primary schools in their cluster. They support colleagues in the delivery of high quality PE and school sport and have a remit to increase sporting opportunities for pupils during out of school hours. They are responsible for the co-ordination and development of after school activities, local community links and inter/intra school competition in their own school and partner primary schools
In addition to every child at Hampton College receiving 2 hours per week of high quality PE and Sport, every student has the opportunity to participate in a range of sporting activities provided through school, extra-curricular clubs and community links. This will create a sustainable legacy both in terms of future elite success and grassroots sport.

Young Ambassador Scheme
This scheme was set up and launched by Sebastian Coe and the Youth Sport Trust as a direct response to the promise that London would use the power of the Olympic and Paralympic Games to inspire millions of young people to choose sport. As a result, the Young Ambassadors programme forms an important part of the PE and sport in terms of developing leadership skills for life.
Young Ambassadors are selected due to their sporting talent or more importantly due to their outstanding commitment and ability as young leaders or volunteers. The role of a Young Ambassador involves increasing participation in school sport and PE, promoting active and healthy lifestyles and spreading the word of the Olympic and Paralympic values of Respect, Friendship, Personal Excellence, Courage, Determination, Inspiration and Equality.
PSSP Young Ambassador Organising Committee/Sports Council
Hampton College has a Sports Council which includes students from Years 7-13. They attend regular meetings and have a say on what they would like to be delivered as part of our curriculum and extra-curricular programmes. They have been busy planning, organising and promoting various events in assemblies and around school including primary festivals, inter-house events and competitions. Primary schools also have sports representatives per year group who sit on a School Games Organising Committee which feeds into the School Council.
Hampton KS3 Leadership Certificate
Through Year 7 to Year 9 core PE lessons Hampton College delivers the Hampton KS3 Leadership Certificate. The course is based on a Bronze (Year 7), Silver (Year 8) and Gold (Year 9) leadership award where students have to meet certain criteria throughout the year to gain this qualification. The awards aim to enhance leadership skills and encourage students to use them at primary festivals and in the wider community. KS4 students take part in a varied curriculum programme which allows them to continue to develop their performance but also further develop their leadership skills in officiating, leading, coaching and organising tournaments and games within their PE lessons.
Primary Festival Leaders
Hampton College hosts many primary festivals throughout the year. These sporting events could not go ahead without sports leaders from Hampton College. Students are selected from their PE lessons when they show a good level of leadership in lessons and outside of school. Students take on roles such as team manager, leader, coach, official/referee and scorer at the festivals.
The JAEf is a Government-funded programme that supports more able and talented young people to fulfill their sporting and educational potential. We have a lot of talented sports performers at Hampton College; on top of school commitments and homework many of these students have intense training programmes and a full competition calendar.
The Junior Athlete Education framework (JAEf) places the junior athlete at the centre of a support package that progressively develops their physical, thinking, social, personal and creative abilities. The JAE framework has 4 key pillars that allow schools to recognise their talent, to guide that talent onto sporting pathways, to provide support for their educational and sporting needs and to inspire them to become future role models.
Talented students from across KS3 and KS4 have been assigned to a mentor from the PE Department. The mentor’s role is to offer support to students who do a lot of training outside of school, where in some cases this may impede on their time to complete home learning tasks. This is by no means an excuse for students to miss home learning or coursework deadlines but in exceptional circumstances mentors may negotiate extensions with staff on behalf of the student.
Mentor’s will also have half-termly meetings with their students to discuss any issues that may arise due to their sporting commitments outside of school. Students are also given the opportunity to attend life-skills workshops to help them balance all aspects of their life.
Annual Gifted and Talented Day
To celebrate the achievements of our high ability students Hampton College hosts an annual gifted and talented day. In previous years we have tapped into the Sky Sports ‘Living for Sport initiative. Sky Sports have provided Hampton College with a Paralympic swimming athlete, Fran Williams, and an up and coming tennis player, Jade Windley, to deliver a motivational one day conference delivering information on health, fitness and nutrition, time management, through both practical and theoretical activities.
Stanground Academy Sports Partnership
Hampton College is working in partnership with Stanground Academy and we are working together to develop PE and sporting opportunities for all young people in our local primary schools. Through this partnership, which is funded by the sport premium funding from the government, our aim is to enhance young people’s opportunities to participate in a wide range of sports as well as raising the standards of teaching and learning of PE and school sport. This partnership puts PE and sport at the centre of the curriculum, using it as a vehicle to develop and improve learning opportunities for all.
Stanground Sports Partnership consists of
- A Partnership Development Manager (PDM): Andy Phillips (Stanground)
- School Sport Co-ordinators (SSCos): Naomi Napier (Hampton)
- Primary school based PE Subject Leaders
A PDM is a full-time role, they manage the partnership and develop strategic links with key partners in sport and the wider community. The SGO manages funding and organises local sporting activities which allow schools to qualify for the School Games events in the Spring and Summer. SSCos manage PE and sport in their secondary schools and oversee the PE Subject Leaders who are based in primary and special schools and aim to improve the quantity and quality of PE and sport in their own schools. This team of people work closely together, sharing ideas and problems and ensuring there is effective communication taking place. They are also provided with training in order to improve the quality of PE within their schools.
Hampton College has three schools in its family...
- Hampton Hargate Primary School
- Hampton Vale Primary School
- Hampton College Primary Phase
