Year 9 Fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support

Macmillan-Cancer-Support-LogoOur tutor group 9.2 would like to be sponsored with a week-long cycle in the spin studios at One NK to raise money for Macmillan cancer support. We are planning to cycle 151 miles across 5 days on the 22nd to the 26th May. This is the actual distance from North Kesteven School to the Macmillan Headquarters in London. This charity was chosen by our class as we would love to help the millions of people who are affected by cancer to receive help and support. We would be grateful for your contributions towards our target of £300. Thank you for visiting our page and we will update you on our cycle journey.

If you would like to sponsor us, please find the link to our just giving page below:

Slam Jam Heats

SlamJam logoThe English Department took five students (four acts) to the first round of the Slam Jam 'Heats' on Wednesday night. We were competing against SSPP and Priory Witham and we are very pleased to inform you that Joe Payne and Molly Inkpin won the best performance of the night with their performance piece on 'How to Write a SLAMJAM poem'. They were scored 79/90 after wowing the judges with their humorous pieces and their 'brilliant chemistry' throughout the performance. As a school, we did brilliantly as our lowest score on the night was just 74/90, so only a matter of 5 points between the four acts. The lowest score on the night from across the schools was around 49 points, so we really have done brilliantly!

Each of our acts, including Ella Moir, Nathan Clarke and Helena Ruffle, were given praise for their creative pieces, that explored a wide range of topics, and their confident delivery. Helena Ruffle received the best score for Key Stage 3! Their eloquent performances , on very mature subject areas , were inspiring. We cannot sing their praises enough.
