Chamber Concert, Drama Trip and Mathematics Success

3rd Year Blog

Third Years enjoyed a very entertaining and enlightening talk given by three Old Hamptonians during Monday’s Assembly. They shared stories from their time at Hampton and spoke about the importance of the pupil voice, development of leadership skills whilst at school and the importance of being yourself. The Upper sixth were then awarded their Service Ties for their different contributions to the School. The boys continued working through the “Sex and Relationships Education” programme during their Thursday PSHE session. Here are some of the other highlights from the Third Year this week:

Drama

On Wednesday, 94 Third Year Drama pupils went to see ‘Animals and Children took to the Streets’ at the Lyric Hammersmith. The pupils were entertained by the exciting and innovative theatre company 1927, who use impressive projections to create their set and even interact with the actors. Seamlessly synchronising live music, performance and storytelling with stunning film and animation, this wickedly twisted tale held the boy’s attention and made them consider the deeper political message in a new and engaging way.

Charlie U and Marcus T performed in Stravinsky’s ‘The Soldier’s Tale’ on Thursday night, at the Chamber Concert. Charlie used a mixture of dance and acting to portray the soldier and Marcus used his fantastic gymnastic skills to portray the Devil.

Mathematics Success!

Our junior mathematicians were crowned regional champions for the second year running in the UK Maths Trust, Junior Maths Team Challenge competition. Held at Trinity School, 34 teams took part in this challenging tournament which stretches the mathematical abilities of boys in the Second and Third Years. Hampton and Caterham School were the joint 2019 winners and will now compete in the national finals at the Royal Horticultural Halls, London on Monday 17 June.

This year’s winning team included Second Years Henry A and George B along with Third Years Krishna W and Akshat M. Akshat who has enjoyed success with the team for the past two years, says it was a very tough challenge:

“The questions seemed much harder this year and we lost a few points which was a little worrying. To hear that we were the joint winners was very rewarding and I am very proud of all the team”.
