  • Working in Partnership

    Teddington School, Hampton High and Waldegrave School Sixth Forms are working together to ensure students have a wide curriculum offer

    Students are able to study one subject at either Hampton High or Waldegrave School and still remain and study the bulk of their learning at Teddington School Sixth Form.

    This can help with subject combinations.

    It can also help give students experience of an alternative learning environment which is good preparation for future development.
