  • Sports Leaders

    Fri 19 Apr 2024

    Some of our Year 10's visited Dover Athletics this week to be Sports Leaders for the Dover School Games Football Tournament. Our students had the role of refereeing and officiating the football games for Year 1 & 2 pupils from local primary schools.

    They are excellent role models and helped the tournaments to run smoothly.

    Both the staff at Dover Athletic and the School Games Organiser praised our students for their hard work, politeness and attitude to the tournament, and also said they were the best Sports Leaders they have had! What an accolade!


    This is a great achievement, well done to all involved!👏👏⭐

    Former Pupil and staff member Marika picked up the Prentice Trophy for the second year in a row for Lieder at the Gala Concert held by Thanet Music and Drama Festival.

    The festival consists of five sections (Instrumental, Speech & Drama, Piano, Dance, Vocal & Choral) and is held in February to March every year, culminating in an Award Ceremony & Gala Concert featuring some of the best performances from all sections.


    Congratulations and well-done Marika!
