Y11 GCSE Religious Studies Trip

As part of their GCSE studies, all of Year 11 took part in a trip to the city of London.  First was a visit to the Central Synagogue where they had a guided tour and a chance to deepen their understanding of the Jewish faith.  Next, on the agenda was the Jewish Museum with an opportunity to explore the impact of the Jewish faith on the fabric of the United Kingdom.  This included a chance to visit a special exhibition, opened by Arsene Wenger, called ‘Four Four Jew’ which focussed on the contribution of Jews to the beautiful game.  Finally, there was a chance to reflect on the Holocaust with a visit to the Wiener Library – the oldest collection of Holocaust artefacts in the world.  All students were an absolute credit to the school; participating enthusiastically with great humour and seizing all learning opportunities.

In memory of Mr Vafeas

Many people have asked if we are organising donations in memory of Mr Vafeas. We have spoken with Mr Vafeas' family, and if anyone wishes to make a donation in his memory, they would like it to go to Pilgrims Hospices in East Kent.

We have therefore set up a Just Giving page to receive such donations. Please follow the link below.
