Kent Mountain Centre 2016

"Can I stay another week?"
"Dane Court's best trip." 

Over the years, students partipating in our annual visit to Kent Mountain Centre in North Wales have said some wonderful things about the place and their experiences. The visit in November 2016 was certainly no exception. As always, everyone took part in a spectacular range of truly exciting and physically challenging activities. The teams of staff, instructors and students were all keen to take advantage of the ideal weather and spent some awesome days on the mountains of Snowdonia National Park and the sea cliffs of Anglesey.

Musicians enjoy Lion King Workshop

IMG 9745 250pxOn Wednesday 29 March members of the choir and GCSE music students descended on London to take part in a movement and voice workshop at Pineapple Studios in Covent Garden.
Students worked on creating four part harmonies based around the Lion King and even rehearsed a choreographed section of The Musical.
The group went on to watch the award winning musical at The Lyceum Theatre, which was absolutely brilliant. An excellent time was had by all.

Gold Fever

Gold Fever 1 250pxThe past six weeks have been very exciting for the students studying Sport Science. 2017 started with two visits to Canterbury Christ Church Universities SportsLab. The year 12 students took part in a variety of fitness testing opportunities, looking at how their bodies respond to exercise in the short term. They also learnt how to assess body composition, heart and lung function. Meanwhile the year 13 students took their research proposal to the SportsLab to see if they can understand the science of talent identification. Each of these visits offer great opportunities not only to support their current studies but get a taste of what life after Dane Court Grammar can be.

The half term however came to a close with the visit of a sporting legend. Five times world champion and twice Olympic gold medallist Alex Gregory graced the sports hall to give students an insight into the world of elite sport and what it takes to be the best. Coupled with some rowing masterclasses, Alex spoke to the students about his journey, turning 8 years of disappointment into 8 years of unrivalled success. Words of wisdom echoed around the room, as his gold medals passed from hand to hand. Much of what he spoke about could be applied to the students own sporting lives, as well as using the lessons he learnt and applying them all areas of their life at Dane Court.

"A truly great bloke, it was good to see the smiles on the students' faces as they worked with Alex during the day...
We cannot wait for him to come back" said Head of PE Ian Wallace

As we move into the next half term we hope to see the students step up and take on board everything they have learnt so far in 2017 and build towards success in the summer.
