Happy New Year and welcome to the first blog of 2024.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break and a well-deserved rest. 

I start the new term with news that on Friday 8 December, at our annual Christmas-themed charity day, we raised £1,206.38 for Homeless Care, an organisation that supports the homeless and vulnerable in the Maidstone area.  Thank you to everyone who supported the day.

During this four-day week there are two main events: the rescheduled Year 13 Parents’ Evening and the Year 8 Information Evening.  The Year 13 Parents’ Evening provides a chance for parents to hear how their children are getting on, and the Year 8 Information Evening provides parents with greater detail and understanding in the upcoming GCSE options process.  Both events take place on Thursday.

However, the biggest event of the week is Wednesday’s football match, which will see the senior 1st XI football squad compete in the Last 16 of the National Cup.  The players have done so well in getting this far, and there is only 90 minutes between them and the quarter-finals.  Good luck to them all.
