John Hampden News


Welcome to the new school year. We will be building on the many successes of last year and are looking forward to the many exciting events planned for this academic year.


Gift No 22


In recognition of Mr Haigh’s long and dedicated service of 23 years the new building, which currently houses the Year 2 children, has been named ‘The Haigh Building’.


This follows the tradition of the last two Headteachers after which the Jackson and Vernon halls are named.


The ceremony was officiated by our incoming Headteacher, Mr Hankey. Proceedings were rounded off by a rousing rendition of the school anthem sung by children and staff.

Lantern Making With Thame and District Day Centre



Children from Year 6 had a wonderful afternoon with the folks at Thame and District Day Centre. We took lanterns that were made the day before to the centre for them to be decorated in time for the Christmas parade. It was great to see our children interacting with the older generation, trading stories and helping to create amazing decorations.

Head Teacher For The Day



Lyla Davies successfully bid to be the Head Teacher for a day in the PTFA silent auction. Due to various reasons, Lyla carried out her duties over several days, accomplishing multiple tasks. They ranged from office duties, H&S audits, to leading a whole school assembly.


She is now an expert, watch out Mr Hanky!
