Captains Return: celebrating the opening of the Sixth Form Centre

School News

A special assembly to mark the opening of Hampton’s new Sixth Form Study & Careers Centre welcomed three former School Captains as guests of honour. During their time at the School, Chris Searle, Tom Nunan and Oscar Mayhew were involved in discussions about the concept, purpose and design of the new building which was completed and opened to current Sixth Formers earlier this term.

The three Captains each delivered an address to a packed Main Hall urging today’s Hamptonians to take up opportunities for leadership, make the most of all that is on offer and not to be afraid of following their own individual path. Oscar Mayhew (OH, 2015) encouraged boys to engage with Hampton life as much as possible:

In the years to come, it is likely that given enough hard work, you may very well be in positions where you can make a genuine positive difference to the world around you. Honing an ability to engage constructively with issues here will be a vital life skill for the future.

Given a tour of the new Sixth Form facilities, the three former Captains reminisced with the Headmaster, their old teachers and the School’s current Captain and Vice-Captains about their time at Hampton. All admired the stunning new Sixth Form facility which will offer the perfect study environment to many future generations of Sixth Formers to come.
