I am sure that you are all looking forward to starting your Summer Sports options, and to the prospect of matches and fixtures being able to take place soon. Make sure that you make the most of any opportunities that come your way and make sure you get involved!

We are also very much looking forward to meeting with parents at parents’ evening this coming Tuesday. Mrs Owen will send a reminder about how to access your online appointments in the School Post on Monday.

CRICKET

During the Easter break, some cricket training sessions took place. Cricket was unable to take place last year, because of e-Learning, so this is the first summer that many people are going to play cricket for Hampton. There will be many net training sessions in the next couple of weeks as well as fixtures against other teams or schools. I, as well as many other people are looking forward to the start of a great cricket season. By Avi (2H)

FOOTBALL

U13A’s fixture against Bloomsbury FC

On Thursday 8 April, during the holidays, the Hampton School 13A’s took on Bloomsbury FC at Hampton School. With the game being split into thirds instead of the usual halves, Hampton took a commanding lead in the first 25-minute third, with a brace from Alex Ashton and a tidy finish from Dexter Boyle putting us 3-0 up, with Bloomsbury having limited chances, and Ollie Swetman nearly making it 4, hitting the crossbar with a free-kick. In the next, once more 25-minute third, we did make it 4, through a goal from Angus Hacking. In the final, shorter, 20-minute third, we rounded of a complete performance through a goal from Sam Moylan-Jones, with Alex Ashton having only the post deny him from his hat-trick in a 5-0 victory.

INTERFORM-RUGBY AND FOOTBALL

It was a glorious afternoon for the annual inter-form football and rugby competition that took place on Monday before the end of term. Each form fielded a team of 7 for Rugby and a team of 11 for Football, and players were rotated so that everyone could take part. There were 3 pools of 3 and each match lasted 15 minutes, with 3 points awarded for a win and 1 point for a draw to establish finishing positions in each pool. If two teams finished with equal numbers of points the result between the two teams was considered. If that was equal, overall points scored and overall points conceded separated the teams. Once the pool games had been played, the two third-placed teams had a play off for 5th and 6th place, the two second-placed teams for 3rd and 4th place, and the two first placed teams for 1st and 2nd place. The final scores for the football and rugby were combined to reveal the overall victors – congratulations to 2B!!
