Year 9 Footballfootball01

The lads had a tough first round draw in the Kent Cup away at St Anselms in Canterbury. It was clear immediately that it would be hard to score against the Arsenal youth keeper they had after several saves from close range. Captain Keelan Powell was a rock in defence and earned his captains armband. Kaine McGrath was physically in the centre of midfield with countless strong challenges.

EHS had a positive start but conceded an penalty against the run of play and went a goal down on the 20 minute mark. The boys attitude and determination shone threw as they threw themselves into everything. In the second half EHS continued to threaten, but again some good saves from the opposition keeper kept us a goal down. After some good work in midfield from Hadley Holden, Gavin Rayner and Callum Linksted, EHS were awarded a corner which Keenan got on the end of to equalise at 1-1. Continued pressure was delt with by one of men of the match, Jake Atkinson and in goal, Jack Lane.

As the game was looking like going to extra time and possibly penalties a break away goal from Archie Ditch was buried in the top corner with the last kick of the game. The stand out performance of the game along with Ako came from the other man of the match, Josh Keene. An awesome performance from the whole team including Danny, Rhys, Jay, Toby, and Jarrod.

Well done boys #EHSFootball

The Ellington and Hereson School GCSE Results 2014pupil01

Against a backdrop of significant changes to GCSE qualifications which have made it harder for students to achieve government benchmarks, The Ellington and Hereson School are celebrating another good set of GCSE results. Over 50% of students gained a C grade in English or Maths with 64% of students achieving 5A*-C grades at GCSE or equivalent while 89% of students gained passes in 5 or more subjects.  Amongst the most notable results were: Keira Debling who gained 11 A* - C grades with 7A and A* passes, Stephanie Williamson who was awarded 12 A* - C passes with 6 A and Heather Jeffryes who achieved 9 A*-C grades.  

Headteacher, Simon Pullen was pleased with the results saying that it was yet another successful year for the students at the Ellington and Hereson School and was a reflection of the hard work put in by both students and staff over the course of many years. He said “I want to congratulate all of Year 11 and also thank the teachers for the commitment they have shown in supporting our students during their GCSE exams. These are excellent results in a year when it has been more difficult to get a good pass in GCSE subjects. They provide an excellent basis from which the students will now be able to achieve in their chosen career paths and I am pleased that many students will be staying on in our Sixth Form in September.”

Anne Francis, Assistant Headteacher in charge of student progress said, “ I would like to say well done to all our Year 11 students who have worked so hard to gain such good results. I also want to thank our parents for the support they have given to both the school and their children throughout the course of their time at the Ellington and Hereson School.”
