Literary legends arrive at Hampton School
Schoolboys brought their favourite literary characters to life and raised more than £1,000 for charity.
Pupils at Hampton School dressed up as personalities including Sherlock Holmes, Ron Weasley, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, Oliver Twist and Aladdin.
English teacher Henry Hardingham organised the event and joined fellow English department members in dressing up as a character from the Importance of Being Earnest.
He said: “The range of costumes and the effort put in by boys and their teachers alike was impressive.
“My personal highlights probably include Slim from John Steinbeck’s, Of Mice and Men, and Moses, who brought along his 10 Commandments.
“Character day is all about promoting a love of books as well as raising money for our chosen charities.”
