Patrick Aryee OH (2004)

The Fitzwygram Foundation has one simple but transformative aim: to increase the number of Free Places available at Hampton School.

At Hampton, Patrick was keen on Athletics, Rugby, Theatre Studies and Science. After studying Cancer Biology at the University of Bristol, he decided to pursue a career in wildlife film-making. Patrick’s TV career began with two mainstream BBC2 shows: Yellowstone and Super Senses. You may have seen him recently presenting a series of wildlife shows on Sky One: Dogs: An Amazing Animal Family; Monkeys: An Amazing Animal Family; and Cats: An Amazing Animal Family.

“The support I received to attend Hampton enabled me to become the person that I wanted to be. Hampton not only allowed my enthusiasm for science to grow, but also encouraged me to be conscious of the world around me. I am eternally grateful for all the opportunities that Hampton provided me with and I am delighted that The Fitzwygram Foundation will provide further free places to future Hamptonians.”
