I really liked Hampton when I came to look round because it seemed down to earth and everyone was friendly and welcoming.
I was at a small state school and Hampton seemed enormous in comparison on arrival, but the teachers and the older boys understand what it is like for First Years and they are very kind and so it wasn’t that scary.
I was the only person to come from my school and I was a little worried that everyone would know each other but you soon realise when you come here that everyone is in the same boat and wanting to make new friends.
There are so many clubs and they help you settle it – I have done Tennis, Table Tennis and Badminton, Drama and Maths Clubs. Recently, I’ve also joined Model United Nations and have taken part in several debates so far. I am looking forward to representing the School at MUN events across the country in the future.
My teachers have been brilliant! They are all really nice and not strict at all. They are so knowledgable about their subjects and make everything interesting and fun.
I take the school coach every day and have a 40-minute journey. It’s good fun and there are lots of people my own age on the coach and we all chat and play games together. It is a very relaxing part of the day!
My message to people thinking about joining the School is go for it – get involved, join as many clubs as you can and take advantage of every opportunity that you get.
There is something for everyone at Hampton. You will meet people with the same interests as you and make great friends.
