First Day, Clubs Galore and Welcome to Hampton!

1st Year Blog

WELCOME TO THE FIRST YEAR BLOG!

It has been fantastic to greet the new First Years this week; it is a very busy first few days, but the boys have taken everything in their stride, and have already been making friends and having fun on the 3G. It can be tricky to find your way around a new school at first, but the boys made full use of the quieter school corridors on New Boys’ Morning to explore Hampton (with a few missed turns here and there!), and it has been lovely to see them helping each other to find their lessons and supporting each other at such an early stage. On Friday the First Years visited the Co-curricular Fair at lunchtime, and hopefully they will come home full of enthusiasm about the new clubs they have signed up for. Find out more about the clubs on offer later in the blog.

Well done on a great first week!
