Third Year Blog

Another busy week of academia, sport, music and drama at a bright but frosty Hampton School.

All Third Year boys have been exploring career options during PSHE lessons so far this year, but rather than choosing their own careers they have been writing CVs and applying for jobs from the perspective of an assumed character. As such, they have been developing their abilities to look at the jobs market objectively and consider how a person’s skill set and qualifications make them suitable for certain types of jobs and career paths.

24 Third Year boys have started the ROAR challenge aiming to raise funds towards Rural Education in India. After two sessions the participants have explored the nature of a social enterprise, discussed branding, and considered what it means to be a ‘Global Citizen’ whilst researching the challenges involved with delivering education in rural India.

Match Report- U14A football vs Dulwich College:

The game started with some disjointed play from both sides. Soon Hampton managed to gain control of the game and were passing and moving freely. Hampton broke the stalemate with Milo Choudry  running down the line and crossing it into the box. The defence half cleared it but only as far as Declan Connolly (Captain) who pounced on the ball and placed it in the bottom corner of the net. The game evened out and Dulwich managed an equaliser when their captain drove through the right side of the pitch and shot. Oscar Murphy managed to get a touch to it but not enough to keep it out of goal. After the second half, Hampton secured the lead when Shahryar Rezvani passed it to Theo Radicopolous, who then played a through ball to Alasdair Bolling. Alasdair calmly placed it past the keeper and into the net. There was more resolute defending from Maxi Grindley and Robbie Cox, which stopped Dulwich getting a foothold on the game. Following this, Hampton were disallowed a goal when Theo’s shot hit the cross bar and bounced across the line. Sadly the goal was not given, as despite Dulwich’s impressive facilities, they have yet to introduce ‘goal-line technology’. Hampton had to dig deep in the last few minutes to make sure they won the game. The A’s showed great teamwork to not concede. Overall a solid victory for Hampton against a good Dulwich opposition.
