Kent Teaching Assistant of the Year! We are very proud to share that Mr Evans has been awarded the overall prize at The Kent Teacher of the Year Awards 2023.

A message from Mr Maisey, Head of 6th Form I am delighted that Mr Evans has won Kent Teaching Assistant of the Year. Mr Evans has been a vital part of our school's computing department and continues to mentor students in the SRP and beyond.

U16 Girl's Championship Final - WINNERS! Match Report - On Tuesday evening our U16 girls competed in their championship football final at The Gallagher Stadium with much at stake. Students were selected because of their dedication and talent demonstrated at football club throughout the year. This night was a big event for everyone involved: the players, the PE staff and the many supporting members of staff at TMS. The girls were eager to get on the pitch to warm up and prepare themselves for the game. They were filled with excitement but also a lot of nerves. The whistle blew for kick off and TMS dominated the ball, with a higher possession rate and greater determination. We started the game in the first third 1-0 up with a goal scored by Summer Cheeseman. With a team talk from Mr Burden and Miss King, and the support of the rest of PE department, the girls knew that we were in charge but needed to make our finishes accurate to secure our winning possession. Unfortunately, the second third finished 1-1, but still with a lot of grit and determination from our girls. Another TMS team talk followed referring to our work rate, our communication within the team and the passion. These girls wanted to win! This third showed our girls attacking most of the time. Opportunities weren't taken, however, at no one point did their heads drop or did they doubt that they could create a chance. In the final 5 minutes of the game, with some great play which lead to lead the ball being passed to Charlotte Waddell's feet, we saw Charlotte taking the ball forward to perfectly smash the ball into the bottom left corner! The Gallagher was roaring from the fans! TMS declared the winners! A message from Miss King - Thank you so much for all the support. This moment will be remembered by the whole school, especially the girls and the PE department. The commitment shown by players and supporters really shows what we represent at The Malling School.
The BAE Systems Education Programme Roadshow Yesterday, our Year 7 and Year 8 students enjoyed an engaging theatre roadshow celebrating STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) careers. The BAE Systems Education Programme Roadshow - delivered in partnership with the RAF and the Royal Navy - delivered a fascinating performance to inspire and engage students with an array of STEM learning. This year the theme was 'From the depths of the oceans to outer space'. Students participated in a range of interactive tasks and watched demonstrations to explore the challenges faced in communicating in a variety of inhospitable environments and how science, engineering and technology have provided invaluable solutions. BAE Systems, the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy currently employ more than 50,000 engineers across the UK. For more information on career opportunities with BAE Systems please visit: www.baesystems.com/ukcareers
Visit from Kent Music School Students in year 7 had an extended assembly today with a visit from the Bach to Future Roadshow from Kent Music School. Lori, Graeme and Colin gave the students a tour through the instruments of the orchestra, demonstrating how they work as well as performing pieces of music. The aim of the roadshow was to inspire more students to consider learning a musical instrument. It also fits in with our term 5 work about The Orchestra. Students were shown the violin, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and trombone. They also got to hear a French horn made from a hosepipe and funnel, an oboe made from straws and a double bass made from a bucket, broomstick and some string. At The Malling School we are proud of the range of instruments on offer for students to learn. We currently offer tuition for the flute, clarinet, saxophone, cornet, trumpet, ukulele, guitar, bass guitar, piano, voice and drum kit. We are always looking to expand this list, so if there is a particular instrument that we don't currently offer, please let Miss Cox know, and if a number of students are interested, it might be something we can look to provide. We are also fortunate to have a large number of instruments in school for students to use, which year 7 students will have seen in their lessons. Following on from this we are going to be offering free taster lessons in flute, clarinet, saxophone, cornet and trumpet for any students that would like to try them. If you would like to sign your child up for one of these sessions, please ask them to see me or contact Miss Cox directly at email@example.com
Congratulations! We are very proud to congratulate Brooke Driver who is through to the next stage of the trials for the FA Women's England FUTURE LIONESSES! It would seem that we are not the only ones to recognise Brooke's great talent!
Visit from the Kenward Trust On the 29th March students in years 9 and 12 were given the Think Differently Presentation, delivered by Kenward Trust's highly skilled and experienced team. Kenward Trust work with individuals to transform their lives by avoiding dependence upon drugs and alcohol. Their outreach presentations aim to be hard hitting and informative on the dangers of drugs, alcohol and smoking. They also look at peer pressure and the consequences to lives of addiction. We would like to thank the Kenward trust for this inciteful and reflective opportunity for our students.
Football Success Our year 10 and 11 girls competed in their district football tournament yesterday. The girls were absolutely fabulous and were resilient throughout the four games they played. Some amazing football was played throughout; with goals coming from Summer Cheeseman, Brooke Driver and Amy North. The girls stayed positive and supportive of each other, even when they conceded and were losing, ultimately turning their place around. They have now qualified for a BIG GALLAGHER FINAL! Congratulations Girls!
Hidden Heroes At The Malling School we are aware that there are many Hidden Heroes who must be recognised within our school community. Staff have been asked to nominate students, who in their eyes, are Hidden Heroes; those who sometimes might not receive the recognition they deserve for their constant hard work and effort. Many of our understated, more humble students have been nominated for their contribution to their tutor groups, specific subject areas, to the wellbeing of The Malling School community or demonstrating The Malling School Way. This year we had just over 50 student nominations, which is an all-time record. We would like to say a huge well done to all of the nominees who will have received their certificates in the post. Mrs Cable
