We would have loved to welcome you to our school in person but holding our usual Open Evening in Autumn 2020 was not possible due to COVID-19 restrictions. As such, we put together this virtual open evening.
You can hear from our Headteacher and Director of Sixth Form about what makes this Sixth Form so special, the application and why John Hampden is the right choice for your A-level studies. You can also hear from our Head Boy on what it is like in the Sixth Form and our Deputy Head Boy on how JHGS supports external students.
Our Heads of Department and subject specialists are here to guide you through the courses offered at A-level, and to talk about the successes and opportunities available in their departments.
If you have any questions you can contact us using the details at the bottom of the page.
Welcome to the John Hampden Grammar School Sixth Form Virtual Prospectus.
We have embarked on a significant building programme, and your son will benefit from the facilities in our new £3.5m Innovation Hub which is scheduled to open in Autumn 2021. This building will provide modern learning facilities to equip students with the skills and knowledge to make a positive contribution to both the local, national and global economy.
Please take a look at the progress so far by watching this timelapse video.
We have recently completed a £500,000 update on our extremely popular Design and Technology workrooms and studio. This update included the creation of a dedicated design studio for our A-level Product Design students, providing them with an extensive range of equipment and software to enable the boys to develop design and engineering skills in a range of materials.
In Autumn 2020 we opened two new science laboratories to supplement the existing 9 laboratories and 2 prep rooms to cater for the popularity of Sciences at JHGS, particularly at A-level. This is just part of our ongoing improvements to enhance the school’s teaching and learning facilities.
