Year 7 pupils from Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys celebrate an impressive match result in the Kent Cup trophy for 2022…
Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys’ (TWGSB) Year 7 football team have had a fantastic result in the Kent Cup. Their match in the competition took place on Friday October 21 against Eden Park High School from Beckenham.
The TWGSB team had a convincing victory, winning by an impressive 10-0 over their rivals.
Their kit sported the logo of mental health charity West Kent Mind in order to raise awareness for them, the important work they do and the services they offer.
The TWGSB team is made up of Year 7 boys from both Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks campuses. The latter was officially opened on January 26 this year by Kent County Council Leader Roger Gough and Dr Philip Drew, the selective school’s Chair of Governors.
At the event Mr Gough celebrated ‘the brave and committed people who first saw the need and were willing to engage with the campaign’ for a grammar school to serve the Sevenoaks area. The campus sits alongside a girls’ provision for the Weald of Kent which opened five years ago.
This year’s current crop of Year 7 TWGSB Sevenoaks students have been hailed as ‘pioneers’ of this new facility so the fact some of them played a pivotal part in such an impressive Kent Cup game has been made all the sweeter as a result of both campuses working together.
“The team’s win was a nice way to finish what has been a very busy term of fixtures,” a TWGSB spokesperson told the Times.
West Kent Mind said: “Congratulations on your brilliant match result. Thank you to Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys for helping us raise awareness of mental health in our community.”
West Kent Mind serves the Tunbridge Wells area along with Tonbridge & Malling and Sevenoaks specialising in supporting and giving advice to those who need somewhere to turn to for advice if they are suffering from a mental health problem. For more details, visit: westkentmind.org.uk
