  • Reception Admissions – September 2024

    Choosing a school for your child is an important decision. At Hampton College Primary we firmly believe that a child's first year at school is a crucial time for them where the foundations of learning and life skills can be laid and secured. Our Early Years team firmly believe in a play based curriculum which offers exciting experiences for children and helps to foster a life-long love for learning.
