Hampton's rowing department has a thriving Parents' Association which raises funds to support our rowers.
Hampton is one of the top rowing schools in the country and it is a very popular sport amongst our boys.
The boys row on the Molesey stretch of the the River Thames which is just a short run from the school. Our facilities are outstanding with a superb boathouse and impressive fleet of boats.
The school has a dedicated coaching team headed by its own, full time Director of Rowing, Colin Greenaway, a former international athelete and Junior International Coach for the Great Britain Team.
Pupils begin learning the discipline in the Third Year when they will be taught to scull. The emphasis is on enjoyment and watermanship.
There are regular training camps in the holidays, some at the Boathouse, but also in Seville, Hazewinkel, Belgium, Temple Sur Lot, Bordeaux.
Old Hamptonians, including Karl Hudspith ( President of the Oxford University Boat Club 2012), the Livingston brothers and the Smith brothers have competed in the Boat Race. The Searle brothers are also well-known Old Hamptonians and Olympic Gold Medallists. ( Greg Searle was part of the Bronze Medal GB Eight, London 2012 twenty years after his Olympic Gold in Barcelona 1992)
