- Outstanding display of sportsmanship and friendly competition was on display yesterday at the East Kent Lord Lieutenant’s Inter-schools Challenge Cup held in Folkestone. Teams from schools in Dover, Folkestone and Ashford competed against one another in a series of seven command tasks designed to test their teamwork, leadership and communication skills. After intense competition, the Cup was won by Tartan Troopers from Folkestone School for Girls who beat Jason’s Bad Boyz from Brockhill Park Performing Arts College into second place. Pictured below are the winning teams with their trophies along with Major (Rtd) D. Bradley representing the Lieutenancy of Kent, and Simon Dean CEO of Challenger Troop2 days ago

- Fabulous feedback received from a Primary school after one of our introductory sessions. The teachers rang us to say that they were amazed by the immediate response and engagement of the participants with the instructors who were challenging them with fitness and command tasks. “By the time the session had finished, the participants were sweaty with big smiles”.2 days ago
