Congratulations to members of our Elite Gymnastics Squad who competed at the BSGA National Finals for Acrobatics and Tumbling on Saturday. Congratulations to Rebecca (Year 10) who achieved a bronze medal in the Over 14 Tumbling Competition.
On Tuesday 3rd July, the 40-strong Motet Choir from Tonbridge Grammar School will join students from all over the country to perform in this year’s Music For Youth National Festival in Birmingham. The award-winning senior girls’ choir has been selected to perform on the stage of the Symphony Hall in Birmingham this summer. Only 40% of the 40,000 musicians are selected for National Festival events at this annual celebration of music.
The Race for the Line competition is intended to inspire tomorrow's engineers and scientists with a national rocket car racing competition involving around 70,000 Year 7 / S1 students in England, Scotland and Wales. Year 7 competed in school earlier in the year, and the TGS winning team from the school qualified to compete in the Regional Final.
Recently Tonbridge Grammar School took part in the annual Bloodhound 'Race for the Line' competition. About two weeks before, Year 7 all got into teams of 3 or 4 and each team was given a blue Styrofoam block to shape and sand. Students had to try and make the most aerodynamic rocket car possible with the resources.
On Saturday morning, eight Tonbridge Grammar students were kitted up and ready to play in the annual Kent College Pembury U12 7-a-side Hockey Tournament. The U12 team had 3 teams to play against, Kent College Sky, Kent College Navy and Cranbrook.
With the ‘Beast from the East’ preventing the originally scheduled tournament taking place, it was with some amusement that the revised date once again saw the snow and ice falling in the 2 days beforehand, resulting in 4 of the 8 courts at Rainham School being unplayable.
Tonbridge Grammar School Elite Gymnastics squad travelled to Kent College, Pembury last weekend for the South East Regional Acro and Tumbling competition, in which 17 TGS students competed across a variety of age groups.
