Welcome to the TWGSB website. I am Tom Milson and very proud to be writing this as Head Boy for 2014 – 2015.
Having been at TWGSB since 2007, I am now in Year 13 studying History, English Literature and Sociology at A2 and hope to study History at University next year.
The school offers a wide range of activities to support its students' development. These vary from sporting clubs, such as rugby, football and basketball to the less physically demanding but equally popular Art Club, Chess Club, Bridge Club, ‘Maths in Motion’, Lego Robotics and many more (click here). We also have individual subject ‘clinics’ offering help and support every lunchtime.
This wide variety helps develop greater confidence, understanding and ensures that we become well-rounded individuals. I have taken part in a number of school activities, which have profoundly benefited me as a person, such as a cultural exchange to India, Young Enterprise and a range of educational visits, from visits to Normandy and Ypres; to Madrid and Paris.
The school offers participation in World Challenge. In 2013 students went to Chile for three weeks. There is also the opportunity to complete your Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh awards.
There are a number of drama opportunities, in partnership with other local schools, or various concerts and Music tours.
For those keen to pursue sports we are close to the St Johns Sports Centre and the school has access to their facilities, alongside our own 3G pitch. All of these incredible opportunities are only possible with the dedication of staff, who encourage, cajole and wholeheartedly support all aspects of school life.
The Deputy Head Boys for this year are Harry Wager, Edward Preston-Bell, Tim Ansdell and Kiran Ruperalia. Together we are the Student’s representatives to Senior management, through both the School Council for the lower school and the Sixth Form Forum.
This year I have chosen a local charity as my Head Boy Charity; it is the Tunbridge Wells VSU. We are aiming to raise enough money to restart a Tunbridge Wells based club for disabled children. It was forced to close earlier this year due to a lack of funding.
Thank you for taking time to read this. I am extremely proud to be representing TWGSB and I hope that when looking at this website you can see how we provide a wealth of opportunities help nurture well rounded individuals.
