It’s been a busy first full week for our First Years, many of the co-curricular activities have started alongside sports training at lunchtimes, see a few of the boys reports on what they have tried out this week below. Many boys have started collecting merits from work in class as well as for solving the weekly riddle. It has been brilliant to hear that many of the boys have been selected for and will be attending the various Hampton Choirs, and are looking forward to singing as a group on Monday mornings. Despite being a busy week, the boys have still found time to get to know each other over lunch or through playing football on the 3G.

Next week is set to be another busy week with the year group setting off for Avon Tyrrell. We are looking forward to all the activities and hope the good weather forecast for the weekend continues into next week! In the meantime, have a restful weekend to prepare for the action packed week ahead.


I really like Biology club because we got to see all the different animals and how they move and live. – Arun (1L)


I like Lego and programming so Lego Robotics club is the perfect combination.  We use computers to program sensors on the robots. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to going back.Mikael (1W)


I liked Table Tennis club because you got to ‘muck in’ and have a go but still have lots of fun. I am looking forward to attending on more lunchtimes. – Ben W (1L)


Basketball is great exercise, and fun and enjoyable.  It’s a great club. – Ralph (1W)


Rock Climbing club was a really good experience because I wouldn’t have found it anywhere else. I found out I was really good at it! – George (1L)


Congratulations to Rajvir (1H) who has been awarded the First Year Tutee of the week for his positive attitude and considerate nature towards other class mates.

Each week Tutors in the First Year team nominate a boy who they have been particularly impressed with and Mrs Peattie will provide the boy with a football to use on the 3G for the week! We hope you enjoy the football games this week Rajvir!



Alasdair (1H) reports on the match against Rokeby School last week:

In the fixture between Rokeby and the Hampton U12C team both teams clearly tried their hardest. Spectators would have called the game very ‘one-sided’. Hampton were in the attacking position from the start and by half time Hampton were ahead by 7 goals. The second half flew by and by the end of the match Hampton had made the score 16-0. Both teams showed a large array of sportsmanship.

Congratulations to the U12A, B and C teams who all won their matches last week!

Good luck to all boys playing Football against Glyn School and Rugby against St John’s School this weekend!


Merits can be collected from Miss Barnes in the Biology office for any correct answers, happy solving!


Although mobile phones can be brought with them for the Avon Tyrrell trip next week, it’s a great opportunity for boys to get to know each other so will need to be switched off for the duration, including the coach journey.

Top tip: We would encourage boys to bring card games with them to play on the coach, or for if there is any spare time at Avon Tyrrell.

Parents, please do not worry, if you need to contact your son, email either their Form Tutor or Mrs Peattie and if your son needs to speak to you we can facilitate this with School phones.
