what will your story be?
Charlie: Third Year
I joined Hampton in the First Year, following in the footsteps of my older brother who really loved the School and is now at the University of Oxford. What I like most about Hampton is the environment here – everyone is really friendly and kind and it is so easy to settle in.
Music is probably my favourite thing and I have joined lots of music groups and clubs, including Chamber Choir which is great fun. When it comes to lessons, I really enjoy science. The teachers make every subject so interesting and we do brilliant experiments in the labs. Chemistry Club is a weekly favourite but I am also going to try the other science clubs. My ambition for the future is to become a cardiologist.
Kieran: Upper Sixth
At the moment I am concentrating a lot of my time on athletics. I compete for the School but I also want to become a professional Decathlon athlete and the dream is to represent team GB in the Olympics so I am training around six days a week at the moment. Currently, I am ranking within the top performers in the country and so things are on track.
Aside from sport, my main co-curricular activity is playing the drums, for which I am currently grade 8. It’s great fun and one of the highlights of the year is performing at the Hampton Rock Concert.
My main goal in life is to become a professional athlete but as well as that I also hope to study veterinary medicine at university in the USA and become a vet later in life.
Vishal: Upper Sixth
Since joining Hampton, I have loved writing and the School has encouraged me in so many ways. I am pleased to have won a range of awards for my written work during my time at Hampton including the Stephen Spender Translation prize and the BBC 500-words Short Story Competition. I also get to hone my journalism skills by taking part in the Young Reporter scheme and as Editor of the Hampton Sports Chronicle. I am currently taking A Levels in English Literature, Maths and Psychology and hope to be able to pursue a career in TV and film production after university.
As part of the current School Captain team, I am very busy every day but I really enjoy taking on this leadership role and helping other Hamptonians throughout the year groups.
Stanley: Fourth Year
I joined Hampton in the First Year and the thing I love most about the School is the friendly atmosphere. The sports here are brilliant and taking part has helped me make lots of friends. I am really keen on rugby and am lucky enough to play for the U15A team. We get lots of opportunities to play other schools on the circuit and we made a great start to the season winning the South Coast King’s Festival. Winning the Middlesex Cup in Second Year was also definitely a highlight of my time here. As well as rugby, I enjoy Golf and Strength & Conditioning training.
In terms of lessons, I love Art, Drama and English. The teachers here are brilliant and I am looking forward to getting stuck into my GCSE courses.
Monty: Fifth Year
I joined Hampton in Third Year and settled in within no time. Everyone is very welcoming and there is a true sense of Hampton camaraderie across the School whatever year group you belong to.
There are so many things to do here and you can choose from a whole variety of activities. I am currently doing my Silver Award for the Duke of Edinburgh’s scheme and me and my friends had a brilliant time on our hike in the Surrey Hills. I am also part of the Newsletter Club and we write updates on life at Hampton and what our friends have been up to. English is one of my favourite subjects but I also really enjoy History as I love to delve into the history of places and people.
My ambition for the future is to make a lot of money and live a happy life!
Noah: Third Year
My highlight so far at Hampton has been taking on the lead role in the Lower School Summer Show: Once Upon a Pine: The Adventures of Pinocchio. I was the world’s most famous puppet, Pinocchio, and had to learn lots of lines, master choreography, and learn some fun circus skills. It was a fantastic production and we brought the Hammond Theatre audience to their feet over two nights.
Kiran: Lower Sixth
A keen rower, I am delighted to say that my boat (J16 Second VIII) medalled at the National Schools’ Regatta. I joined Hampton in the First Year and won a Drama Scholarship. It has meant taking part in a range of shows during my time here which I have thoroughly enjoyed.
This summer we received our GCSE results – it was a bit stressful but I was really pleased with my results, which will help me achieve my goal of heading to veterinary school after Hampton. I am taking Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths at A Level and am really looking forward to getting stuck into classes. The teaching here is superb and everyone wants you to achieve your very best.
