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.

Thursday 23 March 2017, Winter Gardens
This annual event is all about celebrating the success of students across Thanet achieving their Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards. Along with students from mainly Dane Court,Ursuline and ourselves, the picture shows our students after having received their Bronze certificates and bronze badges — well done to all and many thanks to the parents or guardians for their support! Also, a big thank you and Easter Egg to Lydia Hames Year 9 who sang ‘Flashlight’ brilliantly as part of the evening’s entertainment.
Next year it will be the turn of the current Year 10 D of E participants to receive their awards and, hopefully, a Silver group from the current Year 12

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.

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.
