Another Win! Yesterday, our U16 girls played in their final league fixture. Throughout the year they have showed such determination and resilience to come back and keep fighting, even after conceding goals. The final score today was a 6-1-win goals coming from Summer Cheeseman (3), Isabelle Thatcher (1), and Ava Miller (2). A special mention to Daisy Lloyd for playing up a couple of years in our last few fixtures and absolutely keeping us in some challenging games!
Our fantastic Community Volunteers were out in force again this week, along with Mr Ryder. As always we are very proud of their efforts and enthusiasm.

With funding from Kent Music School, Lindsay has been able to buy some amazing music technology equipment, which she will be teaching students to use as part of the course. This includes a synthesiser that is played using bananas!!! If you are interested, click the link below.
On Monday Mr Maisey escorted our sixth form Debating Society to participate in the Oxford University Southeast Regional Mass Debate Competition. We were the only state comprehensive school participating in the contest that was made up of over 30 schools from the region. The students were magnificent in debating issues such as girls' education and salary caps in sport. They showed great courage competing against three extremely experienced teams in what was , for some, their debut competition. Two of our more experienced students took on all challengers in a fiery debate about the welfare state. All of our students were extremely competitive and went on to receive extremely encouraging feedback from the judges. We are very proud of them all.
