Huge Victory For Year 7 Boys vs Norton Knatchbull Grammar School!kent fa

A huge well done to the boys Year 7 football team for their 7-2 victory in the semi final of the Kent Cup!

Ethan Adams scored a massive 4 goals, with 3 more from Kyle Jeans setting the win in concrete. A superb and near unbreakable defence from Oli Georgiou, Brooklin Dethridge, Elliot Watkins, and captain Tommy Hurcombe meant only 2 goals were conceded.

Best of luck to the boys as they move on to the finals!

Denim Rogues - Poisoned Love

In early September, Keelan Layton and Declan Fields – then in Y11 – took part in the Kent Cultural Celebrations as the DENIM ROGUES.
The standard of all the competitors in the show was very high indeed and the panel of judges for the event included Craig Revel Horwood (Strictly Come Dancing) and Kaddy Lee Preston (BBC South East television presenter).

In the video below they perform of one of their own songs in this clip – POISONED LOVE - was their live performance in front of an audience of 700 people at The Assembly Hall Theatre in Tunbridge Wells.

Competition for places in this County-wide competition was very stiff so the boys did amazingly well to earn their place in the finals.

Community Service Awardaward

In October last year the sixth form students of The Ellington and Hereson School in Ramsgate staged a musical show “Bringing it Back” which raised over £820 for the Motor house project, designed to resurrect the sadly derelict former motor museum in Ramsgate.

Last month a local awards show, hosted at The King’s theatre in Ramsgate recognized the hard work of the students and staff with the honour of a glass obelisk: The Obelisk Award for “The Best Community Spirit”. The group were also nominated for the award for best entertainment, with their routine from Chicago.

Thanks to Mr. Ralph Hoult for organising this and to all those who supported the students’ hard work.

6th Form Core Studies at Work

A handful of Ellington and Hereson’s Year 13’s, Nikiece, Shannon, Hayley and Mercedes, recently went to visit students from Years 3 and 4 at Christ Church Junior School to listen to them read and record feedback in the student’s book records. The sixth formers gained experience of representing our school and giving valuable time to the community.

The experience will go towards the student’s IBCC core studies of community service. The visit was so successful that future arrangements have been made to visit the school on a weekly basis to continue the voluntary reading and listening.

Ellington and Hereson students say: We Will Remember ThemRDay 01

Ellington and Hereson students observed the passing of Remembrance Day with a variety of activities and services.

The school council attended the main Ramsgate town centre service, accompanied by SAS veteran Alistair Thomson. The students all joined in with the service of hymns and behaved impeccably and were an asset to the school. Meanwhile History Year 13 students visited World War One graves at St Peters Church, Broadstairs. Kevin and Janet Sayer of the Lions Club guided the group around stories of more than 40 soldiers from the local area that were fatally wounded in the conflict.
