Tuesday 11 October 2022

This week we begin the process of looking forward to September 2023 and welcoming perspective year 6 boys and their parents to our first Year 6 Open Morning.  On Friday, we open our doors to those families wishing to consider MGS as a viable choice for next year, and helping at that event will be the current Year 7 who are best placed to talk about the School and what it is like being a Maidstonian.  We look forward to welcoming everyone then.

At the weekend, we enjoyed a glorious day of sunshine watching our rugby squads compete against Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School, Rochester.  Once again, the results across the squads were mixed, but the senior 1st XV squad led by example bringing home a win 22 – 5.  Well done to the players and thank you to the members of staff and volunteers who continue to support the players not only on match days, but also throughout each week at training.

Today we wish good luck to a number of Maidstonians who are taking part in the first round of the National Cross Country Competition.  If you recall, last year we had three Maidstonians progress to the final of the competition, which took place in Devon.  Best wishes to them all.

And, on Thursday we look forward to the first performing arts showcase of the year.  Our budding musicians and actors will be performing at the Autumn Showcase: an event that celebrates the talents of a number of Maidstonians.  Included in the showcase will be: Pirates of the Caribbean from the MGS Concert Band, Gabriel’s Oboe from the MGS Strings, Seize The Day from the MGS Singers and Blinding Lights from the MGS Big Band. Do come along; the showcase begins at 6.30pm in the Big Hall.
