Basketball Update

On Friday 10th March, 17 QK Basketball Academy Students traveled to Worcester University for a educational experience on campus.

It was a great day and i’m sure they all got a lot out of the trip. For some it was inspirational and motivational and for the others it was a bit of an eye opener of what’s to come in the future.

Here are some quotes about their experience:

“My experience at Worcester University was very inspiring and I learnt a lot. I now have a good idea of what I want to do in the future.”  Warren  Year 9

“During the day at Worcester University, it taught me how important universities are and how many opportunities it can give you. I had a great experience, the whole day was worth the long journey but I would like to go back. As a group I don’t think anyone had a bad time.”

“Looking forward to going to Worcester University”  Omar  Year 11

“The trip to Worcester University was a great experience for me as it allowed me to gain knowledge on different opportunities for me to further my basketball career after sixth form and think about my different options of universities.”  Dwayne Year 12

Here are some pictures of our day. 

Westminster Table Tennis Tournament

Last night, QK hosted the Westminster Championships for Key Stage 3 and 4 Boys.
We had 3 representatives for both categories, who all put in great performances.
 
Key Stage 3 tournament: Bradley was really unlucky in his Final, losing out by one point, with Ali H winning his 3rd place play-off match.
Key Stage 4 tournament: Sufiyan was in great form in winning his final against Marlyebone Boys, with Granit just missing out on a 3rd place medal.
 

Please congratulate the boys on their performances. We are currently the Westminster Key Stage 4 Boys champions!!
