Head boy Michael Gill, head girl Chantelle Davies and se­nior sports am­bas­sadors Nathan Cor­nelius and Jade Grimshaw of­fi­cially signed up to the val­ues on be­half of the stu­dent body with head teacher Les­ley El­lis. Pupils across the school were of­fered a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties in dif­fer­ent sub­jects to get an un­der­stand­ing of how it might feel car­ry­ing out everyday tasks with a dis­abil­ity. Stu­dents also par­tic­i­pated in Par­a­lympic sports such as seated volleyball. A num­ber of pupils also at­tended the of­fi­cial Kent han­dover at the Folke­stone Academy where they ob­served stu­dents from across the county per­form­ing var­i­ous pieces and wit­nessed the live han­dover from Bei­jing.
