Third Year boys were treated to an enthralling presentation by Old Hamptonian, Noman Khawaja this week. Noman moved from a career in dentistry to setting up his own business in gourmet halal food. This talk forms part of a series of lessons on careers put together by Miss Teunissen for PSHE. A few boys stayed on after the presentation into their break time to discuss career options further with Mr Khawaja – pictured below.

If you enjoyed that presentation, why not come along to the next in the Talk! series?

If you love adventure, exploration and learning about different cultures and countries then come along to hear Theo Brun’s Talk! on Tuesday 23rd January.

Theo studied Dark Age Archaeology at Cambridge University, where he graduated with a BA in Archaeology and Anthropology and an MPhil in History. He also rowed in the Boat Race for the university. Theo qualified and worked as a lawyer in London, Moscow, Paris and finally Hong Kong. However, in 2010, disenchanted with the law and with the germ of an idea for a series of novels already in his head, he quit his job in Hong Kong, jumped on a bicycle and pedalled 10,685 miles across Asia and Europe to his home in Norfolk. After a year of high adventure, breath taking natural beauty and a host of extraordinary encounters, he arrived home; whereupon he sat down in a spider-infested cottage to write the first volume in his epic historical fiction series.

So, consider joining the crowd in the Hammond Theatre at 1.00pm on Tuesday 23 January for Theo’s Talk! on his cycling adventure from Hong Kong “As Far as the East is from the West: Crossing Eurasia by Bike.”


Well done to Alex D (3E) who was selected by ISFA to join the England U14 football squad to tour Scotland in April. The focus and commitment required to achieve this is something of which he should be immensely proud.

And finally… good luck to all those involved in the Rock Concert this evening!
