Pre­sen­ta­tion After­noon 2015

website200On Wednes­day 25th Novem­ber King Ethel­bert School cel­e­brated the suc­cess and achieve­ment of the last aca­d­e­mic year at their annual Pre­sen­ta­tion After­noon at the Win­ter Gar­dens. All stu­dents from the school attend this event to cel­e­brate together what King Ethel­bert School has achieved. Mrs Willis, the Deputy Head­teacher, said “We cel­e­brate suc­cess at every level at our school and every­body is part of the school’s con­tin­ued success”.

Par­ents, spe­cial guests and gov­er­nors of the school joined the stu­dents in what was a very inspir­ing after­noon. Mark Everett was the guest speaker. Mark is the Direc­tor of the Mar­lowe The­atre and works with the school in pro­vid­ing won­der­ful enrich­ment and aspi­ra­tional oppor­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents at King Ethel­bert, which adds to their part­ner­ship work with the Royal Shake­speare Com­pany. Mark spoke to the stu­dents about embrac­ing new oppor­tu­ni­ties, inspir­ing them to aim high and believe that all things are possible.

The Head­teacher, Kate Greig, spoke about the fan­tas­tic year King Ethel­bert had. This was reflected in the 6th form results by the con­tin­ued unblem­ished record of 100% pass rate in the IBCP pro­gramme with a record num­ber of dis­tinc­tion* grades. Addi­tion­ally, 53% of the stu­dents from last year’s Year 11 gained 5 A*-C GCSE grades includ­ing Eng­lish and Maths which made King Ethel­bert the high­est achiev­ing non-​selective school in Thanet for the 3rd year run­ning. She talked about the cul­ture of the school and the sense of team as every­one had a part to play in the suc­cess of the school. “When every­one helps, every­one suc­ceeds and this has never been so evi­dent as it is right now at King Ethel­bert School. We are all increas­ingly proud of the shared col­lec­tive respon­si­bil­ity we have – all of us share the same goal, to make Thanet a cen­tre for excel­lent, world class education.”

Stu­dents won prizes in all year groups from aca­d­e­mic suc­cess to prizes for endeav­our and courage. The stu­dents also pro­vided the enter­tain­ment with three bril­liant musi­cal per­for­mances from stu­dents across the school. One par­ent com­mented “The per­for­mances were so pro­fes­sional — the singing was amaz­ing and mov­ing — I had a tear in my eye”.

Head Girl Maisie Har­ris opened the event with the Chair of Gov­er­nors, Dr Vir­ginia Austin, and Head Boy Jack Midg­ley rounded off the after­noon with a thank you to every­one for mak­ing the event so inspi­ra­tional and so enjoy­able.
