Our Team

Hampton is fortunate to have an eclectic and talented staff team. We have a broad range of experience from those in the first year of teaching to others that have taught for in excess of 30 years. Furthermore we have staff with extensive experience in specialist areas including Music, Physical Education, Visual Arts, Mandarin and Sport. What is common across the team is a clear commitment to doing the best they can for the students at Hampton and this means addressing the social, emotional and academic needs of the individual.

We currently have 35 classroom teachers, 8 specialists and 10 Education Support and Administrative Staff. Staff members work in teams where the collegiate support, sharing of the workload and investigating and learning about educational research and best practice results in high-quality teaching and learning. Our aim is to create a stimulating, positive and caring learning environment where the children are eager to come to school.
