Year 8 Football

Well done to the Year 8 football team who finished the season as Runners-Up in the North Kent Cup.  They played the final last Wednesday against a very strong Wilmington Grammar School side that had not conceded a goal throughout their season.  A great level of quality football from both teams was on show, but Wilmington ended up as Champions by winning 3-2 in an entertaining and exciting match.

Congratulations to them as North Kent Champions and well done to the Year 8 squad for a real battling performance. Heads can most definitely be held high, even though the result didn't go our way. 

Thank you to all who came to support them! Maybe next year will be our year... enjoy the summer break.

Well Done Year 10 Sports Leaders!

Well done to our fantastic Year 10 sports leaders who led a brilliant mini-tennis tournament for 6 local primary schools on Wednesday afternoon. Our leaders were a credit to themselves and the school.

Thank you!

Year 7 Cricket

Well done to the Year 7 cricket team after a hard fought battle against Chislehurst & Sidcup Grammar School. Unfortunately, BGS came out second best this time despite scoring a very credible 284. The team spirit was fantastic, and the team were an absolute pleasure to work with in their first away fixture of the season. Yet more BGS pupils making their debut!

Year 8 Cricket

Well done to the Year 8 cricket team, who secured a comfortable 8-wicket win over Charles Darwin on Monday afternoon in the Kent Trophy.

The boys can look forward to the next round after half-term.

Year 10 Cricket

A close opening game for our Year 10 cricket team. We scored 107 off 20 overs.  Wilmington reached the total with an over to go. A lovely evening and an enjoyable game that had lots of twists and turns.

Ultimately, some excellent fielding from Wilmington beat us. The focus turns to our next fixture in a few days!

Badminton – Congratulations James!

Many congratulations to James Ng (Year 8) who, along with his Kent U15 teammates, secured a national badminton title at the finals of the Shires League at Loughborough University.  Qualifying by winning all of their matches during the season, James and his team beat Hertfordshire in round 1 of the finals, Warwickshire in the semi-final and Essex in the final.  Winning a national competition is a huge achievement - well done James!
