*Most of these results were achieved by boys completing AS at the end of the Fifth Year having taken GCSE at the end of the Fourth Year.

Extended Project Qualification
Hampton Upper Sixth Formers again studied for the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), which  entails a university-style research project of around 5,000 words and achieved excellent results including 10 A*s and 22As.

General Comments
It is important to the School that all pupils thrive. It is not the School’s policy to require Fifth Formers to leave because of their GCSE grades. Each boy is encouraged individually in his Sixth Form career, whether perceived to be an academic “high-flier” or not. 

This is a large school where virtually all pupils stay after GCSE to take AS and A levels and there is strength in depth with the vast majority gaining at least one A grade.  In 2011-2012 three boys gained five A* grades, six gained four A* grades and sixteen gained three A* grades, all at mainstream A levels.

2011-2012 was a very competitive year for university entrance because of the forthcoming increase in University fees, so it is remarkable that nearly all pupils have gained a place at an elite university with all Oxbridge offers confirmed. >> Leavers's Destinations 2012.

Hampton is renowned for its all-round academic strength but this year achievements in Mathematics and Science have been particularly noteworthy.  The School accounted for 7% of the national entry of 59 for the new Further Mathematics (Additional), the third and hardest of Mathematics A levels. The Junior Mathematics Team came 5th out of 1,500 schools at the UK Maths Trust National Team Challenge National Finals. Three boys aged 14 and 15 won medals in their Maths Olympiads for scoring in the top 100 nationally, with one in the top 50. Finally, three OHs at Trinity College, Cambridge, all achieved Firsts in Mathematics this summer.

In the Chemistry Olympiad, an international competition open to Upper Sixth students, two (one coming near-top in the Country) received Gold certificates and four received Silver.  Hampton boys won three Golds and three Silvers in the Olympiad-style Cambridge Chemistry Challenge.

Jack Barden de Lacroix has been nominated for the Royal Historical Society Frampton Prize for History for his outstanding performace at A level.
