England Debut for Poppy

Year 9 King Edward’s student, Poppy has made her Under 15 debut, and we couldn’t be more proud.

They played their first match last week against an Independent Schools’ FA team at Charterhouse in Surrey and drew 2-2, with Poppy scoring one of the goals.

Before the game, the girls were presented with their England shirts.

Poppy started playing football at Stannington First School and then joined Cramlington Town where she was the Manager’s Player of the Year for two successive years.

She then teamed up with Blyth Town, playing for both girls and boys teams. She has also played for Chantry School and joined the Northumberland squad two seasons ago.

King Edward’s Inspires 2019

The third Thursday in November is consolidated in the King Edward’s calendar as King Edward’s Inspires. The event on 21 November was the sixth and biggest event that we have put together to benefit our students and help them and their families make informed and inspired decisions about life after King Edward’s.

The bumper careers event comprises a mix of Higher Education and Further Education institutions, and employers who talk about the range of opportunities available in their sector including apprenticeships and work experience opportunities. The event supports the Gatsby Education framework of Good Career Guidance, covering many for the eight benchmarks.

Early feedback from students has been incredibly positive, with one Year 11 saying:

It was so good, I am sorted now – I know what I am going to do!

The event attracted 75 different delegates from a wide geographical area; from Dundee to London. Students and families got to gather information and ask questions from exhibitors with information stalls. To support the information stalls, there was a full programme of presentations from experts in their field. The event was well attended and we attracted students from Dukes Secondary School, Berwick Academy and Newcastle High School for Girls.
