The term draws on but there is no let up in the pace at Sackville!

Another typically busy week for Sackville students, which for our trampolinists began on Sunday. Heidi and Jordi Crowther, Sofia Davis and Oscar Morgan put in some formidable performances at the South East Schools’ Competition. Oscar won the U14 Intermediate category, whilst in the U19 Intermediate Jordi placed 2nd and Sofia 4th. In the Elite U19 Heidi was first overall, with the top score of all 215 performers on the day (including the male Elite competitors).

Followers of Sackville on Twitter will have noticed the Queen Victoria Hospital in town mentioning our health and social care students in a tweet about careers in the health service. Lovely to see ex-student Rebecca Low as one of the presenters too!

Meanwhile, our PiXL Edge programme develops apace. PiXL Edge is an award which allows students to demonstrate their leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative and character, characteristics in much demand in the workplace. There are seven levels that students can work through during their school career, and we are delighted to announce that Kit O’Callaghan has achieved the second highest, ‘graduate status. The photo shows Kit with his tutor Mrs Grace and Headteacher Mr Grant. 

Finally, Wednesday 29th November saw the first round of the Rotary Young Chef Competition, with four competitors from Sackville (Harriet Allison, Megan Stratford, Maisie Barnes and Kieran Du Feu) joined by two from Imberhorne. After exhaustive tasting, Maisie was judged the winner and Megan runner-up. Both girls progress to the next round.

Well done to all of these amazing students!
