Welcome I am delighted to provide this introduction to the first edition of our new alumni magazine, The Hamptonian. (www.hamptonschoolconnect.org.uk), a bespoke professional networking platform for Hamptonians.

Our Alumni Office has produced this magazine to keep you up-to-date with life at the School and to enhance further our links with alumni of all Hampton vintages. We are incredibly fortunate to have such an active and engaged alumni community, whose expertise, interest and support are integral to the success of the presentday School. We are especially indebted to those who have returned to Hampton to offer career advice and to share their experiences with current Hamptonians. The boys find these visits inspirational and my colleagues also enjoy learning more about the compelling, stimulating and diverse post-Hampton lives of our former pupils, not least if they recall them attending their own lessons! The Alumni Office exists to support Hamptonians throughout their lives and to help them connect with one another. Such connections offer many benefits, both personal and professional, so we encourage you to sign up to Hampton School Connect

Many of you already enjoy close links with the School and we were delighted that over 500 Hamptonians attended our range of alumni events last year. Among these, the annual OH Alumni Dinner returned to the Main Hall in 2017 and was a great success – we look forward to seeing many of you at this year’s equivalent occasion, which will take place on Saturday 24 March 2018. As the pages of this newsletter will hopefully make evident, we take great pride in highlighting the many and various achievements of Hamptonians throughout the world. We warmly encourage you to contact the Alumni Office if you have news that you would like to share with the Hampton School community in a future edition of The Hamptonian. Thank you for your generous support for our School. I hope to have the opportunity to meet as many of you in person as possible over the months and years ahead. With kind regards and best wishes

Achievement Awards (2013) and honoured as the top energy product at the Environment and Energy Awards (2015).

Hugh Trimble OH (2003) Appeared on the BBC’s programme Only Connect as part of The Meeples.

Toby Roland-Jones OH (2006) Toby Roland-Jones enjoyed the perfect start to his Test career at The Oval against South Africa.

a boyhood dream after his four wickets in just 33 overs demolished the South African top order and left England in the driving seat of the third Test. The 29year old took eight wickets in total during the Test, the best start to an England bowler’s Test career since 1962. Toby is getting used to dreams coming true. His hat-trick against Yorkshire at Lord’s Cricket

Ground completed a Middlesex victory in the last session of the 2016 season and brought them their first Championship for 23 years. Unfortunately, Toby recently missed selection for the Ashes due to injury. Toby is currently on the road back to recovery and has joined the ECB’s Pace Programme. We wish him all the best for the upcoming season.

better communication for the NHS I became a doctor to better understand the body’s mystery – what it does well and why it goes wrong. Like many before me, I’ve been trained to analyse and solve intricate clinical problems. I find it stunning that so few people at a hospital actually do this kind of work, at least most of the time. For doctors of every grade, in every specialty, much of the clinical work remains administrative (and not yet automated). As a junior, I spend most of my time collecting and carrying out a task list – booking and chasing scans or blood results, prescribing medicines, and referring patients to other specialties or to other members of the multidisciplinary team. All of these things are important, if at times mundane. For me, the real ‘pain’ point is the way that clinical staff are expected to communicate. Pagers, first used in the 1950s, remain the mainstay. Just as Pavlov’s dogs were conditioned to salivate at the sound of a bell, so I now shudder whenever that hideous bleeping noise goes off in my pocket. There is not a doctor or a nurse in Britain who will hear the bleep and think ‘brilliant – a chance to help’. It’s impersonal and constantly disrupts our workflow. In its place, more than 90% of clinical staff have resorted to using WhatsApp for clinical communication – not only is this illegal, it’s simply not optimised for the healthcare setting. The communication problem needs solving. I’ve been extremely fortunate to find a team of talented, passionate friends to work with on this. As our frustrations turned to proactive conversation, we laid out the problem as deeply as we could. Our survey across 60 NHS Trusts showed that 92% of clinical staff would find a purpose-built communication app useful. We’ve designed and built that app: it is called Forward.

Forward empowers clinical staff to communicate instantly and securely within connected hospital networks, freeing up doctors and clinical staff to do the clinical work which we’ve been trained for. We’re making good progress, currently in ‘open beta’ phase across several hospitals in London and the South East, and expanding our reach and team currently. What’s our dream? To empower every staff member in the NHS to communicate brilliantly with the right person, just when they need to. In the process, we hope to inspire the Forward community by showing that it is possible to innovate and change the NHS from the front lines. You can find more information here: http://forwardapp.co.uk/

If you are interested in investing in Forward, in trialling the platform in a hospital you know, or if you have any advice for us, we would love to hear from you. Dr Barney Gilbert OH (2009) OH 2004-09, School Captain 2008-09 Co-founder & Co-CEO, Forward Clinical Ltd barney@forwardapp.co.uk

School News

Malawi Fourth and Fifth Year boys travelled to Malawi and Zambia over the summer. The trip included a stop-off at the Hampton School Safe Haven in Senga Bay, a centre that offers local children

a safe place to learn essential life skills. Hamptonians got straight to work painting classrooms, clearing ground and building fences. The boys also had time to relax and enjoyed scuba

diving and kayaking at Cape Maclear. A three-day safari, hiking and football tournaments with local children, all added to an unforgettable visit for the Hampton adventurers.

Genocide Awareness Day More than one hundred pupils from across London came together for a Genocide Awareness Day at Hampton School. The school children listened to the experiences of genocide survivors

from Bosnia, Rwanda and Nazi Germany, who have survived some of history’s most tragic episodes. After hearing the testimony of the survivors, pupils took part in a variety

of workshops. The event was hosted by Hampton School’s pupil-led Genocide80Twenty campaign group.

Top Chemist

Top History Mark

Sam Reynolds is placed in the top 1% of junior chemists. Sam Reynolds was one of 8000 pupils from across the UK who took part in the 2017 Cambridge Chemistry Challenge. His result places him among the top 60 pupils who took the notoriously difficult exam. In recognition of his success Sam was presented with a much-coveted Roentgenium Award. Ten other Hampton Chemists also scored highly in the exam. Armaan Ali, Joe Flanagan, Jacob Kerr, Savraj Sandhu and Henry Warrington all achieved Copper Awards and Harry Copping, Joe Gellett, Youngsik Kim, Zion Kim and James Milton achieved Gold Awards. Dr Peter Wothers, who runs the Challenge from St Catharine’s College, Cambridge congratulated the Hampton boys and Sam in particular on their performance: ‘It is a demanding paper, which really gives the students an opportunity to test themselves. The top scorers, of which Sam Reynolds is one, represent the pinnacle of all the entries. A Roentgenium award really is a terrific achievement.’

Last year’s leaver Zaki Rehman achieved the highest mark in the country in the Cambridge Pre-U History examination. Zaki, who is now studying History at Cambridge University received a certificate marking his achievement and was warmly praised by Michael O’Sullivan, Chief Executive of Cambridge International Examinations: ‘Topping the list of candidates in a Cambridge Pre-U subject is a performance of the very highest calibre. Zaki has shown us truly outstanding ability.’

Royal Albert Hall The 32-male voice choir Voices of Lions was invited to sing at the 2017 Music for Youth Proms.

Football – ISFA Representatives Nine boys have been chosen to represent their respective Independent Schools Football Association teams. National honours go to Will Davis (U18), George Maxwell, Shaun Joash (U17), Henry Evans, Fred Hodgson (U16), Thomas Banks, Sammy Omar, Ollie Burke (U15) and Alex Dinan (U14).

The Youth Proms, which features acts recognised as being among the UK’s most creative and innovative musicians, was held at the Royal Albert Hall.

Chris Mapletoft Festival of Rugby The annual Festival of Rugby celebrates the life of Chris Mapletoft OH (2013). The tribute event, which is in its fifth year, saw over 75 alumni return to Hampton. A wide range of ages and abilities took part with alumni teams from 2008, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and the Old Hamptonians’ RFC. Kicking off the day with the Alumni Sevens Touch Rugby Tournament, the 2016 alumni team, led by Joel Hartikainen OH (2016) and Greiogair Hogg OH (2016), defeated the 2014 alumni in the final. The teams were

reinforced with a strong contingent from our 1997 Old Hamptonians’ including Ravi Kothakota, Ben Wootton and Simon Amor, not forgetting Nick Cooke OH (1986) who took to the pitch as our oldest player for the tournament. The exciting day of rugby was polished off perfectly with the much-anticipated clash between Hampton’s current 1st XV and 2017 Leavers’, who came out victorious with a 36-28 win. After refreshments in the Dining Hall, Mrs Lesley Mapletoft presented 2017

Leavers’ Captain, Will Verdan OH (2017), with the Chris Mapletoft Trophy. The Headmaster, Kevin Knibbs said:

‘It gives me great pleasure to see so many of our Old Hamptonians’ return to play in the Festival of Rugby. A wonderful way in which to remember Chris and to start our calendar of events for the year.’

One Term On 2017 Reunion Our most recent leavers came together just before Christmas for a reunion in Richmond. It was an ideal start to the festive season and it was great to see

Oxford Alumni Dinner It was a pleasure to see so many Hamptonians from across the years come together for the annual Oxford Alumni Dinner at the Freind Room at Christ Church College Oxford.

so many familiar faces back together and catching up after their first term away from the School.

Inspiring Hamptonians: Alumni Share their Expertise and Knowledge KANBAR HOSSEIN-BOR OH (1998) Kanbar Hossein-Bor OH (1998) addressed current Hamptonians in Assembly; he spoke of his time at Hampton and his journey from refugee to international lawyer and British diplomat. After leaving Hampton in 1998, Kanbar studied law at Warwick University and holds a master’s degree in international law from Cambridge University (St Edmund’s College). He has gone onto hold a number of posts, including in the Netherlands (Head of the International

Law Team and UK Agent to the International Court of Justice), Iraq (Head of the Human Rights Team), Libya (Head of Libya Team) and Liberia, where he was briefly deployed as Head of Mission during the Ebola crisis. Before joining the Foreign Office as a lawyer, Kanbar practised

constitutional and criminal law as a barrister and is a ‘Lord Denning and Kennedy Scholar’ with Lincoln’s Inn. We wish him well for his next assignment as British Deputy High Commissioner to Bangladesh.

DR AKBAR DE MEDICI OH (1992) Returning to the School, Dr De Medici spoke to the current pupils about his career path and his determination to follow his passion.

After nine years at university and qualifying as a surgeon, Dr De Medici decided to leave the NHS and embark on an alternative career path. Now a man of many hats, it was challenging for Dr De Medici to describe his average day. His daily schedule includes lecturing,

running his own private practice, being the elite sports contact at the Institute of Sport, Exercise & Health and serving as a specialist doctor for the NFL when they are in London. Dr De Medici encouraged current Hamptonians to fulfil their ambitions; his resounding advice to the students was simple: ‘Try to remain focused on your end goal and don’t let anybody stand in your way of achieving your potential.’

DR BEN LINDSEY OH (1987) Meeting with a group of young Hamptonians interested in a career in medicine, Dr Lindsey spoke of the path he took into medicine and what continues to drive him. Mr Lindsey FRCS is a consultant vascular and renal transplant surgeon who trained in London, South West England and Cape Town. His specific areas of interest include surgical training, medical management and research into small calibre bypass grafts using principles of nanotechnology.

He explained that surgeons are no longer the stereotypical academics with little bedside manner. The importance of dexterity as well as making decisions under pressure, working as a team, making ethical choices and showing empathy are amongst many things to consider. Dr Lindsey spoke to today’s pupils and encouraged them not to be deterred by the years of training to become a doctor. He said that they should invest

in their chosen career and diversify with the times: ‘I engineered my success by making things happen. I found opportunities to develop and continue to learn.’

From Hampton Sports Chronicle to Sky Sports Adam Hunt OH (2008) returned to Hampton as part of the Careers Lunch series. Adam answered questions and offered guidance to those who wish to pursue a career in journalism. After leaving Hampton in 2008, Adam went on to study Journalism & Political Science at Flagler College in Florida. Adam currently presents a range of programmes for Sky, from sports bulletins on Sky Sports News and Sky News to feature interviews for SkySports.com. In recent years, Adam has covered Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup football for Fox Sports. His advice to the boys was to try to gain writing experience and build a portfolio: ‘The main thing is to get the experience, there is nothing stopping you from going to watch a Hampton 1st XI game and writing about it. You could even interview Mr Mills or a key player in the team. I think it is essential, while you are at school, to just practise, practise and practise!’

OH Section News

Football O.H.A.F.C’s strong start to the 2017/18 season may well be the reward reaped from a gruelling pre-season on Clapham Common during the balmy summer months. Yet as the turn of the year approaches, the club’s three teams have lost only one home game in each respective league so far. Could it be that ‘fortress Dean Road’ is destined for multiple silverware come May? The 1 XI’s positive league campaign sees them sat one point adrift from the top of the Premier Division and with a game in hand. The squad has also booked a semi-final spot in the London Old Boys Cup with a history of success in both competitions. They will, undoubtedly, be hoping to add a fourth league title to the three won in the past four seasons. st

Following back-to-back league promotions for the 2nd XI, you could be forgiven for expecting them to struggle this season in the Senior Division 2 South. Nevertheless, the squad continues to demonstrate their quality sitting comfortably in the top half of the league with two games in hand. In Division 4 South, the 3rd XI have made a great start to their league campaign as they look to better a second place finish last season. Finishing 2017 in 3rd place leaves the team poised to push competition to the wire in the New Year.

The club has seen a healthy number of new recruits over the summer, with university graduates breathing youthful talent into the club year upon year. With growing confidence and momentum, only time will tell if O.H.A.F.C are to be victorious on multiple fronts this season. Alex Kennewell OH (2008) O.H.A.F.C Chairman. For more information, please contact Alex Kennewell OH (2008), Club Captain, alex.kennewell@uk.pwc.com

Rugby The Old Hamptonians Rugby Club made the move to the Surrey Merit Leagues this season and currently sit at the top of the West Conference having won eight out of nine games. The move to the Surrey Leagues has seen rivalries renewed with the likes of Old Tiffinians and KCS Old Boys. Captained by Charlie Coltart OH (2013), over 50 different players have played for the club this season, including a vets team that progressed in the Middlesex Vets Cup with a win over the Bank of England. For more information, please contact Pete Dendy, Rugby Club Secretary, peter.dendy@heineken.co.uk

Cricket The Old Hamptonians Cricket Club field three sides on Saturdays and play in the Surrey County Championship leagues, the ECB National Club Championship,

Surrey T20, Cricketer Trophy and field an Under 21 side in Tier 1 of the Surrey Trust League on Sundays. The club welcomes players of all levels of ability, with a focus on building a strong core of talented cricketers, who are proud to represent the club and who uphold our core values. We are fortunate to have a wide playing base, which is full of experience, giving our new players the perfect opportunity to learn and adapt their game. Pre-season training begins on Tuesday 6 February at The Kia Oval at 7.00pm and each week until the start of the season. We also train at Hampton School on Wednesday. For more information, please contact Rich Brown OH (2005), 1st XI Captain, ohacricket@gmail.com

Golf The Old Hamptonians’ Golf Society (OHGS) finished off 2017 with a Christmas Meeting at Strawbery Hill Golf Club. The winner on the day in the 18 hole Stableford competition was Keith Lambert OH (1975). Keith also won the annual ‘Race to Strawberry Hill’ competition, which is awarded for the combined best 4 scores during the whole year. The ‘Round of the Year’ award went to captain Howard Hughes, who scored an excellent 38 points at Cuddington in May. All Hamptonians are welcome to join OHGS and to play in fixtures. If you wish to be notified of upcoming fixtures please contact Martin Read OH (1972), secretary OHGS, martinread@blueyonder.co.uk.


Hamptonians Remembering One hundred years on, we are all connected to the First World War, either through our own family history or because of its long-term impact on society and the world we live in today. 2018 marks 100 years since the end of the First World War. The History Department will soon be starting a project within the School to remember all those who fought and died in the Great War, who either came to Hampton, or are related to a Hamptonian. The aim of the

project is to capture the stories of those who served in the war and to remember at least 1,918 soldiers. The current pupils will be asked to bring in either an artefact or a picture of their relative which will form part of a commemorative display within the School.

HAMPTONIAN MAILBAG LATE FEES! We were delighted to receive a letter from Ian King OH (1947) along with a very old chemistry book, which he had accidentally kept after leaving Hampton. Sharing his fond memories of former teacher Mr Ackroyd and the School, he wrote: ‘Text books were issued on loan to all students. For some reason my textbook was mixed up with Mr Ackroyd’s and

I still have it in my possession. On leaving Hampton I took up a career in engineering, and found the text book to still be of value. I now feel it is time to return it to its ‘owners’, and hope it will be retained as a memento of the times.’ The letter and book provided particular joy to our librarian. Needless to say we have waived the late fee of £170.47!

We are encouraging Hamptonians past and present to support the project by sending details of their relatives to commemorate the centenary. For more information please contact the Alumni Office. alumni@hamptonschool.org.uk
