Span­ish Visitors

JS200

We have been lucky to work closely with the Lon­don House School of Eng­lish over the past term, with Span­ish stu­dents vis­it­ing year 9 and 10 classes for cul­tural and lan­guage exchange.

Stu­dents of all year groups have also had the oppor­tu­nity to join span­ish stu­dents for a vari­ety of sports activ­i­ties on a Tues­day after school. Stu­dents from years 7 8 and 9 have taken up this oppor­tu­nity to mix with Span­ish stu­dents for a fun game of foot­ball or badminton.

Year 10 stu­dents have been mak­ing the most of the oppor­tu­nity to prac­tise their spo­ken Span­ish as well as enjoy­ing meet­ing new peo­ple and mak­ing new friends.

The Great British Spring Clean

adam 200On Fri­day 3rd of March stu­dents at King Ethelbert’s School vol­un­teered to help out in this year’s National ‘Great British Spring Clean’ cam­paign. For the whole day stu­dents worked tire­lessly to clear the school grounds of lit­ter and rub­bish. They started off the day by tak­ing all of the schools recy­cling (some­thing we do each week in houses) and then tack­led the main areas of the school. The hard­est parts to clear were the bushes around the school bound­ary where rub­bish had ended up due to the wind. Finally, they fin­ished off the day by plant­ing some new trees at the front of the school. It was a great effort by the schools Eco Com­mit­tee and the dif­fer­ence is already visible.

IBCP Success

Huge Con­grat­u­la­tions to Saf­fron Clif­ford in Y13 for achiev­ing a triple dis­tinc­tion star D*D*D* in her Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care as part of her IBCP stud­ies. This is an amaz­ing achieve­ment — read on to find out what her excit­ing options and next steps are… Well done Saffron!

After hard work and copi­ous amounts of self moti­va­tion, I com­pleted my BTEC with D*D*D* and bagged myself 3 uni­ver­sity offers and an appren­tice­ship offer. I have con­di­tional offers for Can­ter­bury Christ Church uni­ver­sity to study, Busi­ness Man­age­ment or Events Man­age­ment and an offer from Uni­ver­sity of Kent to study Busi­ness Man­age­ment with a year in the indus­try. As well as this, I have been inter­viewed for a Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal appren­tice­ship, which links well with my BTEC in Health and Social Care, there­fore I am con­sid­er­ing accept­ing that offer for September.
