The Hampton Focus

Academic

A team of Lower Sixth pupils have created The Hampton Focus, a current affairs magazine looking at events and issues relating to Economics and Politics.

Supported and guided throughout by Mr Paraskos (Head of Economics) and Miss Field (Head of Politics), the team devised, organised and wrote the publication entirely during the lockdown period.

At such a remarkable and unique time, articles in the publication have been able to investigate topics as wide-ranging as the recent oil crash, the impact of Covid-19 on the stock market, lessons from Winston Churchill’s wartime leadership and the politics of rock music.

Head of Politics, Miss Jenny Field, praised the Hamptonians for their hard work in producing The Hampton Focus:

The pupils have been entirely self-sufficient in getting this project off the ground, showcasing independent learning and academic endeavour at its very best. The articles are extremely well-written and offer the reader an intelligent insight into some topical political and economic concerns.
