Alexander the Great, Rock Concert and pirates

1st Year Blog

Despite some illness and cold weather this week, the First Year boys have remained resilient and thrown themselves into School life with their customary enthusiasm! It has been fairly quiet on the fixtures front, due to last week’s snow, and life has continued at its usual busy Hampton pace.

Next week – somehow it’s already our last before half term – looks set to be a busy one for the boys. The basketball team have a match against Richard Challoner School and we are all looking forward to ‘Pens Down Day’ on Wednesday.
