  • Congratulations Alice!

    Published 07/05/24

    Huge congratulations to Alice Black and her netball team. Alice went to Sunderland to compete last weekend and came an impressive 7th in England!  Alice plays for Kent County Netball Club. Following an initial qualifying regional tournament and 14 matches throughout the season, they gained a place at the U16 National Finals. The 18 best teams in England played over 2 days, in Sunderland, at the Beacon of Light Stadium. Their team, KCNC, won 5 of their 7 matches in the Finals, only losing to the eventual winners and another top team. Congratulations to Alice, an excellent GD circle defender who played every match, blocking out the opposition, defending shots and making interceptions to turn the play over. She is part of an amazing team, who worked brilliantly together to beat tough opponents, and we can proudly say they came 7th in the country.

    Teamwork at its best!

    The PE department is proud of your success, Alice. Well done!

  • Year 9 & 10 Netball Trip

    Published 24/04/24

    London Pulse V Saracens Mavericks

    On Monday 15th April, the Year 9 and 10 girls' netball team went to watch the London Pulse netball team play against Saracens Mavericks at the Copper Box Arena.  It was really exciting to get to see them play, especially from the front few rows. 

    We watched how quickly they moved with the ball and how they worked the ball towards the shooters. The score was really close throughout the whole game and the last few minutes were really tense as the score was tied until the last second. 

    Everyone really enjoyed watching, and we would all love to go again!

    The Year 7 Girls’ Football team attended a Bexley Tournament at Goals on Wednesday. The team played 10 games against local schools in an intense afternoon of football. The team went from strength to strength as the afternoon went on and played some great football. We managed to secure four wins and two draws, whilst 4 teams managed to take the win over us. A huge well done to all the players for their determination and fantastic attitude. A special mention to Vania and Elodie for being our top goalscorers on the day!

  • Year 9 Kent Cup ~ Well Done Boys!

    Published 06/03/24

    All season the boys have been working hard to keep their undefeated streak in the Kent Cup alive with some very impressive performances against difficult opposition.  This all came to a head on Saturday when they played in the final against Harvey Grammar School at the Gallagher Stadium, home of Maidstone Utd. 
    The boys had a quieter than normal warm up and the pre-game talk was about focusing on a quick start and not allowing the opposition to play.  The boys took to their task perfectly and created a few early chances, but Harvey's goalkeeper kept the scores level.  Against the run of play, Harvey Grammar managed to score a free kick to give them an early lead, but it was short-lived.  Bexley picked themselves up and, after a string of excellent play, Jesse pushed the ball past the goalkeeper to equalise.  We managed to get the ball in the net again before half-time, but it was ruled offside. 1-1 at half-time. 
    The team talk was all about pushing on and converting our chances.  We knew that we wanted to score early in order to take this game away from Harvey Grammar, and we did with one of George's huge throws, capitalised on by Maks.  2-1 Bexley. 
    The game ebbed and flowed, but Bexley continued to assert their dominance over the game, just not having an end product.  Harvey Grammar's best player, who had been relatively quiet in the game thanks to our robust defending, picked up the ball and started an incredible run through to goal where there was a tangle of legs and, after some confusion, a penalty was given.  2-2.  It stayed that way until the end of the game, even with a few late chances from our boys, we couldn't get the ball in the net.  Under Kent rules, there is no longer extra time and penalties, so we had to settle for a shared trophy. For all round, excellent play Luke F was picked as Player of the Match. 
    Although it felt like a loss on the day, I couldn't be more proud of these boys and the effort and commitment that they have shown to this team.  Next time, we will win outright...

  • 1st XI Football - Kent League Champions!

    Published 28/02/24

    Bexley Grammar School 1st XI were confirmed as Champions of the league after beating Beths 3-2 on Wednesday 21st February. Thanks to an epic 2-1 win away at Gravesend in January with only 10 men (goals from Kyran Forbes and Liam Hutchings, brilliantly assisted by Riley Woods), BGS had their title chances in their own hands when they travelled to 2nd place Beths. Anything less than 3 points would have meant their bitter rivals walked away with the League instead.

    Year 11 North Kent Cup Final (2022)

    Having arrived at Beths, there was drama over the kick-off, as the pitches were playable, but it seemed that the opposition was nowhere to be seen. Thankfully, they turned up, slightly late, and the game was on. Beths started strongly and took an early lead, before Obi Igwe curled in a beauty with his left foot (the least he could do after missing a previous game!), before he then set up Riley Boyle to put BGS 2-1 up in a dominant first half display, the defence dealing with the Beths attacks, Dexter Gilchrist and Liam Hutchings putting in crunching tackles, Leo Ridge rampaging down the right-hand side and Miko leading the line like an old-fashioned number 9. Chances came and went, but as the second half started, former BGS student Arinze led Beths revival as they equalised with just over 20 minutes to go, and the title was slipping away from our hands. However, a brilliant interception high up from Riley Woods saw him with a chance to cross for Mason McKenna to scoop the ball home for a well-deserved winner with just under 10 minutes to go. Obi hit the post late on, but the boys comfortably held on, thanks in part to Aidan Wicks’ safe hands and game management, to secure BGS’ first ever 1st XI league title. A brilliant performance, expertly led by captain Oli Knight. Mal Turner was a standout player, causing havoc for the Beths defence with his clever positioning helping to create space for the forwards, but everyone in the squad played their part.

    Year 8 North Kent Cup Final (2019)

    It’s been a pleasure to have coached the Year 13s since they were in Year 7. They’ve been a fantastic bunch of people, and I’ve enjoyed every high and low with them over the years. We’ve had a number of cup finals (fewer than we should have due to Covid), but this victory is no more than they deserve for their hard work, dedication and attitude over the years. A credit to all the squad, who have contributed to this success throughout the school year!

    The following players have made appearances this year: Aidan Wicks (GK), Oli Knight (C), Liam Hutchings, Mason McKenna, Leo Ridge, Dillon Walton, Riley Woods, Tayo Odumusi, Dexter Gilchrist, Jed Baulch, Hayden Ouattara, Mal Turner, Riley Boyle, Obi Igwe, Miko Bielski, Kyran Forbes, Jack Ristow, Sam Hood (GK), George Bell, Loic Ndoutoumou, JJ Adeduntun

    Mr Martin, Year 13 Football Coach

     Year 7 (2018)

    I cannot believe it’s over already. It seems as if just a couple of days ago I was turning up as a nervous Year 7 to the school football team trials. What a journey we have all come on as a team. I’ve had a great time playing for the school football team and the players, and we would all like to thank Mr Martin for the effort he has put in to make this incredible journey happen for us. From training before school to away matches in Canterbury, Mr Martin has put up with us for 7 Years, and we cannot thank him enough. This league win in our last game was a fantastic way to sign off. We played some of the best football we have ever played, with lots of rotations, clever movement and intricate passes all over the pitch. Now the only thing left we have to win is the Sixth Form vs teachers match later on this year. I think we have it in the bag. I’ve heard rumours round the school saying that we were the Bexley Grammar golden era!

    Well done to all the boys who have played this year and, yet again, thank you to Mr Martin!

    Oli Knight, Year 13

    Year 7 Netball Tournament

    A testament to their dedication to training this year, not one, not two, but three Year 7 teams entered into the borough netball tournament against 13 teams. Hosted at our home ground, and in freezing conditions, there were smiles all round as our BGS 1 Team achieved a respectable 4th place. Well done ladies and thank you to our sports prefects Sophie, Beth and Mateja for their team management on the day.




    Year 8 Netball

    The Year 8s headed to Chis and Sid in what can only be described as arctic conditions. The girls were a pleasure to take; polite, hard-working and great ambassadors for BGS. A great result, placed them 3rd and 5th overall. Well done all!

    There's plenty more netball to look forward to over the next few weeks. 

    Year 10 Netball

    A great win for our Year 10 teams against St Matthew’s on Wednesday night. With some Year 9s helping out, both teams played some excellent netball. The 'A Team' won 17-4, whilst the 'B Team' secured a 14-9 win. Defensively, we marked our players through court, creating opportunities for interceptions whilst our attack brought the ball through court with speed and precision. A huge well done to the shooters for fantastic shooting.

    Player of the match went to Lisa and Ariana. 

    Well done all!
