This week Year 12 will be completing their examinations, which, along with the AS examinations later in the month, provide an idea of how the students have progressed since September. These examinations are vitally important as they form the basis of predicting the students’ UCAS grades later in the year. Good luck to them all.
On Thursday last week two events took place. The U15 football squad played Valley Park School in the Maidstone District U15 Final at the Gallagher Stadium. The boys played really well, but sadly lost to Valley 3 – 2. The boys were very disappointed not to bring back a win for the School, but throughout the game conducted themselves extremely well and were a credit to MGS. And also on Thursday the Year 11 drama students performed their GCSE pieces to an external examiner. The students had spent the last few weeks preparing for their assessments, and fingers crossed for some good results which won’t be known until August.
Today after school the U14 football squad play Oakwood Park Grammar School in the Maidstone District U14 Final at the Gallagher Stadium. Good luck to the boys and let’s hope they can bring home a win.
Finally, congratulations to Matthew Piper of Year 12 who completed the Milton Keynes half marathon a week ago. He finished it in a really good time of 1 hour 52 minutes and raised over £250 for Great Ormond Street Hospital. He now has plans to run the Tonbridge half marathon later this year. Well done Matthew.
