Just before half term a group of CCF RAF cadets took part in the South East Area Air Squadron Trophy Competition. The Air Squadron Trophy is one of the most prestigious cadet competitions within the Combined Cadet Force and Maidstone Grammar School has won it on numerous occasions. This year we have once again achieved a place in the National Final by coming second in the SE Regional Final. We were also the highest scoring state school out of 13 competitors. Well done to the cadets, thank you to the staff who accompanied the students, and good luck to the team who compete in the Final on Sunday 13 March.
This week we will know who next year’s School Captain and School Vice-Captain are. Seven candidates, shortlisted from 16 applicants, took part in a rigorous interview process which involved two interviews, an assembly, two presentations, a group task and a lunch with key staff and members of the wider school community. The outcome of the process will be announced very soon.
Finally’ on Friday all of the Year 7 boys take part in the annual BBC School Report. This is an opportunity to illustrate how the BBC works and provide an insight in the field of journalism. Every year the boys enjoy the experience, and it is one activity they fondly look back on when they get older.
