The Summer 2016 Kent Academies Network programme is well underway at Tonbridge School this week. Now in its third year, the scheme aims to provide four years of support to help academically bright and ambitious young people in Kent Academies to successfully apply to top ranking universities in the UK.

KAN consists of six academy schools and their independent school sponsors: Folkestone Academy (King’s School, Canterbury); Marsh Academy (Tonbridge School); Skinners’ Kent Academy (the Skinners’ Company); Isle of Sheppey Academy (formerly Dulwich College); Knole Academy (Sevenoaks); and the John Wallis Academy (Benenden). The Sutton Trust, the Garfield Weston Foundation and Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge support the programme.

Thank you to Sevenoaks teaching staff who taught on the course – Tim Jones, Sophie Golding, Dini Orme, Gavin Henry, Sabrina Shah, Rod Rands-Webb, Theresa Homewood and Cath Nicholson.

Cath gave an inspriational talk to the Year 9 and Year 10’s about how to set goals and achieve them & how she got into the English Hockey team and won a Bronze medal – she suggested ten golden rules. She also encouraged them to be resilient and learn from when things don’t go to plan!

Other teachers also came from Tonbridge, Beneden, Marsh Academy & Skinners Kent Academy.
