    We had a very productive week in the run up to Remembrance Sunday, with music students enjoying ‘La finta giardiniera’ at Glyndebourne Opera House.

    Our amazing Art students have created a series of wonderful self-portraits , whilst our Year 11 English students have participated in an interactive ‘Of Mice and Men’ workshop.

    Not to be out- run, the PE department had a healthy week with students taking part in cross country. We are especially pleased to congratulate Ellie, for qualifying to run in the Kent Schools Cross Country Team.

    On Thursday 6th November, we shared our joint open evening with Wilmington Boys School, showcasing the excellent offer provided through our collaborative consortium offer WG6. This was a very busy evening and it was lovely to see so many students keen to discover what WG6 has to offer and ready to plan for the next chapter in their education.

    On Sunday, I was pleased to participate in the Dartford Service of Remembrance with our Chair of Governors, Diane Connell. Mrs Hunt also represented the School at the Wilmington Remembrance Service, where she was joined by Danielle Conolly and Francesca Yankson, who presented a wreath on behalf of students and staff at the School. We will have our own 2 minutes silence in school on Tuesday and a special assembly for all to reflect on the sacrifices made both past and present.

    To celebrate Children in Need week, Mrs O Neill has organised a cake bake off. I was lucky enough to be part of the judging panel deciding which entry was the tastiest cake and which was the best design. This was a very tough decision to make, as the quality of entrants was exceptionally high and for some reason, I had to taste the lemon drizzle cake several times to re-confirm how beautiful it tasted. Thank goodness I live close enough to Bluewater to clothes shop, as I think I may well resemble Pudsey Bear by the end of the week!

    Finally, just a message to confirm that Transport for London are undertaking their 3rd survey of 601 usage today 10/11/14 and I sincerely hope that this time it will translate into another bus for our students. I am also creating an improved waiting area to implement an improved queuing system to operate as soon as possible

    Best wishes,

    Mrs Lodge
