    Published 15/12/21

    The U14's girls football team played in the Kent Cup Quarter Final on Tuesday 14th December against a strong Thomas Tallis School. The game was very competitive and Darwin battled extremely hard throughout the 70 minutes. Two goals from Eloise and Brooke sealed a 2-0 victory and puts us through to the Semi Final in January against Tower's School. A fantastic effort by everyone involved and a great way to end the Christmas term! Well done girls !

  • Award Winning Web Development Agency Ecce Media Works with Charles Darwin Students on Technology and Digital Solutions

    Published 10/12/21

    On Wednesday 10th November Year 9 and 10 students were lucky enough to have a visit from technology agents Brant, Aaron and Adam from Ecce, a website and app development company based in Sevenoaks. They were here to help 25 students generate ideas to demonstrate how can we use technology and digital solutions to make it easier for people to understand the true environmental footprint of products and services, allowing households, schools, universities and businesses to make choices that are good for the planet.

    After getting background information and researching, students had just 2 hours to plan their digital solution, before presenting their ideas to the class and the technology agents.

    “Today we have experienced the process of coming up with an idea in the digital world. Having help from professionals we were able to come to a decision as to whether we would want to pursue a career in the digital world. Despite the short amount of time that we had, it was still fun coming up with an idea as a team” Pierreice and Adrianna

    Our digital partners ecce chose the winning team and had this to say:

    Eco-Me was the winner "The premise is that a user sets up a profile-detailing lifestyle including travel options, recycling changes and daily challenges to help reduce this.  The app shows the current carbon footprint and suggested lifestyle changes and daily challenges to help reduce this.  Not only are users rewarded with the knowledge they are helping to save the planet, but are also awarded badges and points which are redeemable against prizes.  The inclusion of a leader board was also a nice idea. A very well organised team - great presentation".

    Well done to the Eco-Me team of Grace Kelly, Eloise Butterworth, Sonny Roberts and Oliver Rogers who have been entered into the national competition.

    A huge thank you to Mrs Babe, who spent the day working with students to get their creative juices flowing.

  • Year 11 Bronze DofE Team Practice Walk

    Published 14/10/21

    On Saturday, 9th October, Y11 students took part in their Bronze DofE Practice Expedition.  The students walked roughly 4 mile loops to either Downe or Cudham. While students knew the local roads, the footpaths were new to them and many were astounded by the countryside and wildlife right on our doorstep. Students led the way and took the accompanying staff on only minor detours on their way round. Thank you to Nicola Tsang, Julie Gater, Emma Corris, Kat Wood, Charly Abbotts and Simon Culver for supervising the students on their DofE training walk.

    Our U14’s girls football team have got off to a flying start in the return of school fixtures after the stoppage due to COVID. With 2 games in just 2 days, the girls have worked incredibly hard and shown the togetherness needed to be a successful team. The first match against Hayes School ended in a 10-0 victory with Brooke, Eloise, Mia and Phoebe getting on the score sheet. Attention then quickly turned to the Kent Cup game the following day where the girls battled tirelessly against a strong Bonus Pastor side. The game finished with a 9-2 victory with Brooke, Eloise and Mia getting themselves on the score sheet. Both games were an entertaining watch and included some excellent finishes. 

    A special mention to Alyssa, Zara, Tahlia, Evie, Izzy B, Ruby, Demi, Eloise, Maddie, Izzy S, Mia, Lizzie, Brooke, Phoebe, Kiarna, Kyra and Ki’shae for their part in the games. We look forward to the next games coming up!
