Hampton School for girls began in 1858 on the campus of the Potsdam College’ (now Munro College) in St. Elizabeth, with Miss Elizabeth Ramson as Headmistress. The school was established with the funds bequeathed by Robert Munro in his will dated January 21st 1797 to his nephew Caleb Dickenson.
Hampton School is now home of over 1200 ladies with representation from 14 parishes. The school continues to “grow and flourish” blessed with a well-trained, committed and forward-thinking staff. It is guided by a visionary and proactive Board, which is chaired by Mr. Wesley Barrett, OD. With its strong and varied extra-curricular components, Hampton School today ranks in the top five High Schools in the island, academically.
