Term 5 & 6 News

School Production, ‘Mugsy Balone’

In May, we showcased our school production, Mugsy Balone, to students, family and staff. Students and staff had been working hard and rehearsing for a number of months in the lead up to the show. A big well done to everyone who took part!

Our students and staff worked so hard and did a fantastic job. Thank you parents and carers for being a great audience!

Small Haven Arts Exhibition 

What a great turn out for our annual Small Haven Arts Exhibition! The theme was ‘Express Yourself’, and each student submitted a piece of artwork to be shown at King Street Studio & Gallery. Fantastic work everyone!

A big thank you to our Sixth Form students Anaken and Archie for working really hard to organise and set up the exhibition.

Forest School 

Disney class had a blast at Thanet Community Forest School in term 5. Sessions have included activities such as bug hunting, crafts, nature identification and games as well as free play in a local woodland environment.

Ramsgate Fire and Rescue Service Visit

We had a very special visit from the Ramsgate Fire and Rescue Service this term.

To say thank you to the firefighters for everything they do, we gifted the team a hamper filled with thank you cards and goodies. The firefighters then let each class take a look at the inside of their fire engine! Thank you very much for your visit.

Sports Achievement

As a reward for all of the Kent Games sports events Small Haven has been taking part in, Mike was invited to choose five students to take on a fun bowling trip. We would like to thank those students for all of their hard work and for being excellent representatives of the school!

Maddy the Dog

Students (and staff!) have been really enjoying Maddy the Dog’s visits. Maddy is a therapy dog and her owner very generously donates her time to come and visit us every other week. Maddy loves all of the attention (and treats!) she is given.

Cross Country Achievement

The Turner Contemporary Work Experience

Two of our Sixth Form students, Archie & Anaken, went to The Turner Contemporary Gallery for their work experience. They took part in a number of activities and were fantastic representatives of the school. A review that Archie & Anaken wrote of an exhibition at the gallery even made it onto their website, we are very proud! CLICK HERE to read the review:


Our students in Year 1-6 took part in a panathlon event and came second place! What a fantastic achievement, well done!
