Hayling Island Residential Trip...
Pupils from Yrs 5&6 spent a week at the Mill Rythe residential centre in Hayling Island, Portsmouth from Monday 11th until Friday 15th June.
While there, children took part in numerous activities, designed to foster their independence, courage and growth. These tasks included abseiling, climbing and the leap of faith to name but a few.
Headcorn pupils were amazing throughout this truly adventurous week. Representing our school brilliantly with their excellent behaviour, and 'never say die' attitude towards everything presented to them during our stay.

IT’S BACK! Headcorn’s Got Talent is being held on Wednesday 20th June.
We are holding the class heats in the morning sessions with the finals being held that same afternoon. If your child is interested in sharing their talent then please get them practising in preparation. The judging is done by their classmates in the class heats and a combination of the staff and pupil Leaders for the finals.
The winners from each class will be given the opportunity to perform in Celebration Assemblies and the overall winners will be invited to perform at our own Arts Festival: ‘Create’ being held on Friday 20th July from 6pm.
Grand Opening of Keeler House...
Thank you to everyone who worked SO hard to give us the best Grand Open Day we could have hoped for. The morning ceremony was very special with speeches from the key participants in the construction of our new building, Keeler House. We also buried a time capsule full of letters that the children wrote to their future selves. We enjoyed stunning performances by the HP Singers and even had an unexpected visit from Kiera and Kieran the Kier mascots!
In the afternoon our site was buzzing with activities, a cafe in aid of Macmillan, guided tours and performances by our talented musicians and choir. We are so proud of our pupils, staff and PTFA for working so tirelessly to ensure that our school sparkled with its trademark atmosphere of fun and learning!
Remember our latest and prevous issues of Headcorn Headlines are available for you to view or download on the Noticeboard section of the school website.

Messy Church will be back on Saturday 23rd June, so please make a note in your diaries. Fiona is also in the process of organising a ‘Family Treasure Hunt’ around the village on Sunday 9th September, with a picnic at Days Green – but more details to follow.
Finally, for anyone interested in taking a climb up the tower, there will be cream teas at Headcorn Church and an ‘Open Tower’ on the first Sunday of June, July, August and September – which sounds well worth a look to me!
Following bad weather, a flood and a bank holiday Athletics Club is now up and running. As with last year, we will be using the English Schools Athletics Award scheme (ESAA) to provide members of the club with achievable goals to work to over the next two terms.
If so they wish pupils can purchase achievement badges, which they can proudly display on their PE kits.
Mrs Collins and myself would very much like to see some more pupils taking part.
Currently we have very few girls representing their age ranges across the key stage and would like to see many more of you in the coming weeks. Athletics Club is every Monday after school from 3:30pm till 4:30pm for those interested in attending.
