Hampton Court House School (HCH) is an independent day school which occupies a Grade II listed, 18th-century building on the edge of Bushy Park in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. After extensive refurbishments, the school opened its doors in 2001. [1]


The curriculum in Year 3 comprises an extensive range of disciplines, including English, humanities, mathematics, history of art, French, science, sport, art and Life Skills. Through lessons for Life Skills, HCH aims to introduce pupils to various cultures, religions and ways of life. As a result, children grow in a sense of tolerance and mutual respect very early on.


The selection of co-curricular activities is broad, including a number of pursuits such as judo, dodgeball, Mathemagician Club, tennis and yoga. Ensuring that all interests are met, the school is open to launching a club or society if pupils show initiative to pursue or foster particular hobbies.


The HCH ethos fosters intellectual curiosity and promotes honesty and empathy among pupils, instilling in them a lifelong love of learning and profound appreciation of differences. The ethnic mix of staff on board reflects the school’s aim to familiarise children with a wide range of social and religious backgrounds which shape our world, allowing them to access adulthood with an open mind and an unbiased attitude.
