On the 75th anniversary of VE Day, we have been marking the service and sacrifice of those who lived through the Second World War and remembering the remarkable history of Hampton School itself.

When war broke out in 1939, the School had only just moved to its current Hanworth Road site. Teachers and pupils had to quickly adapt and the School not only built air-raid shelters and trenches, there was a pig pen and rifle range on the site. Much of the School’s history between 1939-45 has been researched by the History & Archives Club who have designed a World War Two trail which highlights key wartime locations on the School site during wartime. Thank you to the following pupils for all their enthusiasm and hard work: Max Melhuish, Daniel Frith, Elliot Bird, Omer Demiral, Oli Cheeseman, Matthew Pickles, William Nichols, Ryan McAleese, Alexander Stylianou, Isaac Crowhurst, Aadi Timblo, Luke Vaughn, Max Goldin, Charles Blagdon.
