Team Endowed picked themselves up and won the bronze medal in the play-off - a terrific achievement. Huge well done to all of the team. Mr Wren
The Lower School team played brilliantly reaching the quarter finals before losing narrowly to the eventual winners Reculver. I was extremely proud of their achievement as for many it was the first time they had represented the school. Mr Hadlow
A fantastic result for Team Endowed who represented our school at the annual Herne Bay Sports Hall Athletic Competition and came in 5th place out of 15 schools (some of which are double our size!).
They participated in various running, jumping and throwing games and were an incredibly strong team, coming 2nd place in most of their events.

District Football Competition Endowed Boys 'A' and Girls Team at University of Kent at Canterbury
8 October 2018
Team Endowed had a great time at The District Football Tournament.
The Girls team play extremely well considering this was their first match, they had some very tough matches and enjoyed the experience of playing in a tournament.
Well done Boys A team who played brilliantly. A heart stopping semi-final penalty shootout kept them from the Finals - but played a great 3rd and 4th playoff match to come away with a bronze medal.
Netball League Champions!
The final results for the Netball League are in:
Whitstable Endowed A Team - 1st Place
Whitstable Endowed B Team - 3rd Place
What an amazing season! Our league winning A Team remained unbeaten scoring an incredible 100 goals and only conceding just 8. A league record!
Placing 3rd for the B Team was equally pleasing as they were playing other schools' A teams and lost just 2 matches all season (one of those was to our A team).
Congratulations to the whole netball squad!
Mrs Gilbert & Mrs Dodds

Well done to our fantastic Hockey Team.
4 Year 6 girls and 4 Year 5 boys, all of which played their first hockey match on March 21st. They won the East Coastal Schools tournament without losing a game and qualified to the Kent Hockey County Finals in Rochester.
Yesterday at the final they beat 10 other teams to finish 3rd best team in the whole of Kent, losing only two games all day. They have been asked to play in the South of England Hockey Champions in two weeks time. Inspiring individuals who swapped inexperience for full-hearts. Thanks for the memories!

The biggest well done to the three year 5 girls playing their first matches for the school.

Next Match: Ospringe School Away - A&B Team Thursday 3 May
Endowed A v Endowed B: Wednesday 26 April 2018
Being placed in the same league our A and B teams faced each other last night. Although they are all friendly squad members, there was still a fiercely competitive edge to the game. The first quarter a tight 2-1 lead for the As. The Bs fought valiantly to counter the speed and fine shooting. The final score a 15-2 victory for the A team. Star players John and Lily B. Well done to all our amazing netballers.

Inspired by England's amazing Commonwealth Games gold medal, our netball teams played against Boughton on Wednesday. Again, the A team were amazing cruising to a 21-4 win. Star player Drew shooting 11 of the goals.
The B team then came on and worked really well together to secure a 8-1 win. Brilliant contributions from our 3 Y5 players but star player for the B's went to Y6 Lily B, who was also a great captain.
Endowed v Hernhill: Thursday 15 March 2018
Congratulations to our 'A Team' netballers who played their first match against Hernhill on Thursday night, cruising to a convincing 6-0 victory. Superb play by all 7 team members but in particular Zane and Lyla as Star Players. Next match will be Thursday 23 March against St Mary of Charity.
Quicksticks Hockey Champion Winners!
Huge Congratulations to our 'Endowed' Hockey Team who won the Quicksticks Hockey Tournament organised by the Sports Game Coastal Partnership. The children had been practising in their lunch times and were very excited to put their skills into play.
"On Wednesday a mixture of Y5/6 children travelled to Polo Farm in Canterbury for the Quicksticks Hockey Tournament. We won our first game against a very tough Herne Juniors team. Our second game however resulted in a draw against Hampton.
Having beaten Davington, we won our group. We then won our quarter-finals 5-0 against Herne Bay Juniors and semi-finals against St Mary's 3-0. In the final we faced Herne Juniors in a repeat of the first game. The team defended heroically and scored the break away goal to win the tournament. We now look forward to the county finals in Chatham in June."
Premier League Stars - 2nd place runners-up!
Tuesday 13 March 2018
Well done to our Girls football team who had the amazing opportunity to compete in the Premier League Primary Star Football Competition at the University of Kent.
Right from kick off the girls played with amazing confidence and comfortably won six group matches consecutively and succeeded in winning their semi-final 1-0 to gain their place in the final against Upton, who proved a disciplined and relentless team. The girls dug in deep and with a last minute shot hitting the post just before the final whistle the match ended in a nail-biting 0-0. In extra time a well organised Upton proved too strong and unfortunately scored two great goals earning them a place to play at the regional finals at Leicester City FC.
Y5/6 Sportshall Athletic Tournament
