Greetings from Gravesend


Being a student in the Medway towns is an interesting experience. This little corner of the world has never been known for its endless attractions and activities. However, we don’t let this defeat us. If we have to make our own fun, we will and when boredom strikes what better way to fill a few hours than to take an 11.3-mile stroll along Medway’s picturesque motorways to the glorious town of Gravesend.

Goodbye (my babies)


Dear Students, as you all probably know by now I shall be leaving the Centre at the end of June. Before you all disappear after the exams I just wanted to say 'bye and wish you all the very best of luck in your future studies and careers.  I have no doubt that you will all go on to do great things.  I shall miss you all (yes, even though at times you have pushed me to the brink of frustration) but I intend to keep in touch with the Centre so will hear about all your successes.  Thank you to all year 2 students for the lovely card.
