Following TCC’s recent launch of its Education Network I was delighted to speak to a fabulously bright group of six formers at Hampton School in Middlesex last Monday. Studying a mixture of A-Level subjects including politics, economics and history these students were not only intelligent and receptive to new ideas but they demonstrated an excellent breadth and depth of knowledge.
Well versed in the ideas and publications of friends at the Adam Smith Institute, these students are also getting into their Ayn Rand, Ludwig von Mises and Murray Rothbard. Eager to discuss free market critiques of central banking and monopoly fiat currencies, I was not surprised to learn that this school is one of the highest performing in the country. Later, I was delighted to meet the headmaster Barry Martin and to discuss with him return visits in the future. Excellent.
