Dear Parents and Carers
We have so enjoyed having the students back to some ‘normality’ this year and it has been wonderful to be able to resume some extra curricular clubs and activities and to hold some well overdue face to face events and celebrations such as Presentation Afternoon and KES Live, albeit with careful and detailed planning to reduce risks with Covid. Congratulations to our U16 Football Team who have reached the Kent Cup semi finals which is a huge achievement — we wish them lots of luck in their big game on Saturday against Harvey Grammar School. Do come along to KES (kick off 10am) and support them if you are able!
Thank you for your on-going support. We have made some good headway in recovering from lost learning time and the disruptions due to lockdowns. Re-establishing good learning habits has been the most important factor in this. Please continue to work with us to:
The new variant of the virus, Omicron, has meant that we are back to wearing masks in communal areas around the school. Students have responded sensibly to this (although a few need reminding and nagging!) and we expect this to continue for now. We are concerned that there are still a significant number of students who are not registering their LFD results or not routinely testing.
Please continue to ensure your child does twice weekly LFD tests and registers the result on the app: https://testregister.co.uk/login. Please contact us if you have run out of tests and need more.
The U16 boys are through to the final of the Kent Cup after a 3 – 2 victory over Harvey Grammar on Saturday. Two goals from Garrett and one from Brisley sealed the win. The boys will play Hurstmere in the final with a date and venue to be confirmed in the new year.
Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances the GCSE certificate collection scheduled for this Wednesday 24th November after school, will now be postponed until Wednesday 8th December at the same time — 3.15 pm to 7.00 pm.
