Professor Karen Cox, Vice Chancellor and President of the University of Kent, visited our Year 11 and 12 students today. Students asked some very interesting and pertinent questions regarding University life, funding and the future of further and higher education.
Please find attached updated timetable for the MY6 and MY7 from September to reflect changing school times.
Please note that from September 3 2018 until November 26 2018, MY6 will be diverted via Marshall Road, Rainham, as Edwin Road Rainham, will be closed for gas main replacement works. Buses will come down the top section of Edwin Road then turn into Marshall Road. Any students in the Edwin Road area who require the MY6 bus service should board at existing bus stops in Edwin Road near to Durham Road or the A2. ASD will also pick students up from halfway down Marshall Road by Sylvain Road.
Year 10 were joined by special guests Dave Keeling, a comedian and motivational speaker, and Miss Price with Monty the dog, our Mindfulness experts! Students enjoyed a very inspiring talk from Dave who discussed a range of ideas, from how our brains work, to the effects of stress on the brain and how to really make the most of your education. Miss Price and Monty then led students through some mindful breathing techniques that left students feeling calm and focused. It was a really inspiring session with students leaving feeling positive and motivated ready for the most important year which commences in September 2018- Year 11!
