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.

Students from KES attended the Commonwealth Flag raising ceremony in support of Commonwealth Day at Birchington Square. Each student represented the school and their uniformed club. The students represented, Sea Cadets, Scouts, Air Scouts, Girl Guides, Army Cadets and Boys Brigade.
On 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.
