First Year Blog

Despite the official end of Cooking Week passing five days ago, there appears to be no let-up in the culinary productivity. Industrious boys are still donning the chefs’ whites and beavering away in the kitchen, and the flood of photographs landing in Mrs Peattie’s inbox on a daily basis is proof of this.

It has been a busy week on the Music and Arts front. Last Saturday evening we were treated to another magnificent musical spectacle in The Hammond Theatre; the Choral Society sang Bach’s St John’s Passion and we were delighted that the following First Years – Tom Flenley, Theo Mantel-Cooper, Kai Kelly, Daniel Edge and Tej Mosaku did such a fantastic job. This week we have had the very exciting news that the following First Years have been shortlisted for the Hampton School Creative Writing Awards Lucas Cairnes, Timothy Lee, Tom Flenley, Jack Farthing, Daniel Clarke, Sam Wooldridge and Leanesh Sivakumar, the winners and runners up will be announced in next week’s bulletin.

Mrs Peattie is delighted to announce that Tom Flenley is this week’s Tutee of the Week, this is because we are incredibly impressed with the progress he has made this half-term, but we also are delighted with his full commitment to the wider School life; to have sung in St John’s Passion and be shortlisted for the Creative Writing competition all in one week is very impressive indeed!

Onto the sporting front, Timothy Lee has reports that:

“Over the past week, Hampton U12B Football played against Cardinal Vaughan, Halliford School and St. Paul’s School. The scores went our way for all three matches: 4-1, 4-1 and 5-2 respectively. The scorers for these matches were: Euan Gallagher (3), Louis Williams (1); Euan Gallagher (3), Timothy Lee (1); Jamie Hacking (2), Ben Fryer (1), Euan Gallagher (1), Timothy Lee (1). Well done to Euan for getting two hat tricks over the three games. I would also like to say that the whole team has done exceptionally well this season, and have trained very hard for it. Furthermore, I am sure that everyone would like to thank Mr Thomas for his dedication to the team this season. Well done everyone for this brilliant season!” – Timothy Lee

We have a very exciting afternoon ahead of us. It is the highly important, competitive Inter-Form Rugby and Football matches – fear not Mrs Peattie will post the results in the final bulletin of term next week.
