Their Prep School Contemporaries (76 - 81),
& Mark Reade (75 - 81)

 

 

Reunion
Saturday 10
th July 2021

Save the Date!  Details will appear here in due course

Lunchtime – late afternoon

 

Lunch in the new dining hall

Totally chill out

Tours of the school

 

Staff most welcome

 

If you were at the 20-Year Reunion (two years late) in 2003, you will recall that it was absolutely relaxed and everyone had a great time.  Lunch was wonderful and there was an atmosphere of complete ease.

 

Arriverderci, Arriverderci, chaps,

The lofty spires of H.G.S. recede in shrouded mists

As higher portals of burnished gold beckon.

Our bodies gone from here, our minds retain the lessons

learnt, as chisel-marks on the rocks of our mortality.

“I’ll remember, I’ll remember

The rooms where I was taught

The little blackboard where the staff

Didst grant us what we sought.”

       O Hampton, O Hampton

       Thou quenched our thirst

Now grateful we leave, the serried ranks depart

And the Dutch Elm of education has shed

another black and yellow Autumn.

 

Stephen Farrell

An ancient parchment has been uncovered, which gives a complete list of ‘the Last of the Grammars’ etc

Scholars and historians are arguing over the fragmentation of Form groups in this parchment

THE PERFECT GENTLEMAN

Attention Hamptonians!

Awake from your studious slumbers!

The last of the ‘grammars’ are marching away

 

“Goodbye, goodbye” they call,

“Perhaps we’ll meet some time in the fair future.

 

Perhaps we’ll even be famous. . .

Goodbye. . . goodbye.”

 

And a page in our school’s history turns.
