What an end to 2012

Article1 Header ImageLast year, we were just one and a half points from retaining the House Trophy for the second year. Very well done to Neuchatel, but beware; we'll be aiming higher than ever this year.

We wish to welcome our year 7's who have already settled in and become completely immersed in the house system, competing in many of the interhouse competitions. Last year they won the year 7 quiz and also won the drama cup for Sorrento, so a big thank you and well done to them.


British Arts Awards winners

At the time, the Sorrento House Captain described the girls as 'ones to look out for in the future'. He was right. Six months later, they have just scooped first place at the final of the British Arts Awards in London.

Thank you to everyone who helped on the day or donated a tombola prize. 


Sorrento's 10p bazaar

sorrento_flames_with_mammongraphy_appeal_120pxSorrento are holding a 10p bazaar on Tuesday 7 February at 1:10pm in aid of their house charity; the East Kent Breast Cancer Mammography Appeal.

Stalls will include various fete-like activities, for example, cakes, guess the name of the bear, splat the rat, guess the teacher from their baby photos and a tombola which we are hoping will be the main attraction.

Consequently, if anyone has any suitable tombola prizes we accept them with a huge thank you.  Prizes to be taken to Miss Riley's office in Sorrento.
