7 plus (7+) Exam – Hampton School – What you need to know




Hampton Prep School (formerly Denmead School) has recently moved to brand new premises on the Gloucester Road which feature a ‘stunning, state-of-the-art building’ with eco features including an alpine-plant studded roof. The school is  a light, spacious and energising place in which to learn and work. Facilities include: eight classrooms, two IT suites, purpose-built art room, library, music rooms and performance hall.


Early drop off at 7.45am and the option for extra-curricular and late stay until 5.30pm makes the school day helpful for parents.


Teaching is closely aligned to the National Curriculum but independent schemes of work are produced (and reviewed annually) to provide children with opportunities to extend their learning and enable them to ‘tackle a range of tasks and activities that best match the breadth and depth of their abilities and then extend them.’


Hampton Prep’s ‘three Rs’ are: ‘richness, relevance and rigour.’
