Y12 Ryan Ashforth raced to victory in the Stafford and District Schools' cross country championships for the second year in a row.
Ryan is a steeplechase and 1,500m specialist who has taken the cross country circuit in his stride. In the under-18 race he finished the 4.2k course almost a minute ahead of the pack.
More than 250 runners from 10 schools challenged for titles in four age groups in a chase for a top 10 finish, to earn a chance to represent the district team in the county championships on January 23.

On Wednesday 11th November 2015, KEVI’s SLT presented an assembly in remembrance of those who fought, and in some cases lost their lives in the war. Our focus this year was the Battle of Britain (as this year marks its 75th anniversary) - the battle in which the RAF defended the United Kingdom against the German Air Force the Luftwaffe.
Guests at the assembly included several Old Edwardians who were involved in the war, as well Mr Matthew Guymer MBE of Haughton, who has recently been awarded Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur for his involvement in the Liberation of France in the Second World War. Matthew Guymer began service as a Band Boy at only 14 years of age, and went on to be in active service throughout the war. It has been a great honour for the school to have met with him, to show both our respect and gratitude for his amazing life.
After observing a two minutes silence and concluding our assembly, several students from the SLT accompanied the Old Edwardians to the Chetwynd Centre in order to lay a wreath. This was an act of remembrance from both the older and younger generation, who came together on this day to remember the losses Britain suffered all those years ago.

The 1st ever Sixth Form House Quiz Competition:
On Wednesday 4th November, sixth form organised to have a quiz between the different houses. Each team consisted of 7/8 members but blue team had double the amount!
There were many different rounds of questions ranging from a round about animals, a music round and a round about science.
Green team came 4th, yellow team came 3rd, blue team came second and in first place was Red team. They were very pleased with the outcome having won a bag of celebrations to share!

After half term the sixth form hosted a pumpkin carving competition for the school. We saw a large number of outstanding designs and were very impressed with the effort both pupils and teachers had put into this event.
As this was a house competition there were points awarded as prizes for both the best design and the numbers participating in each house. Blue house won points due to having had the most entrants in the competition and the winning design went to Kaitlyn Dolloway in Red house Year 7.
The sixth form would like to thank everyone who participated and congratulate all on the effort that was displayed. We look forward to seeing the spooky creations this time next year!
