The yearly Foursquare contest, open to all schools in the south east of England, has been going for over 10 years and there have been numerous schools from Gravesend who have held the prize high up – including Bronte, Wrotham Road, Culverstone and Westcourt in addition to Copperfield in 2019.
Yet, this is the main year the between school rivalry has been won without a group meeting the others.

This year, it was Copperfield Academy’s chance to take the title again.More than 20 groups from 12 grade schools were equipped in every way necessary for the situation yet Copperfield raged through with Year 6 dealing with a record of 301 out of three minutes and Year 5 hitting 275. St John’s elementary school additionally progressed nicely, completing as other participants yet in addition the most improved.
Coordinator Jason Owen said: “I’m certain we’ll bring every one of the schools back together again one year from now however after the achievement of the co-activity challenge, we may need to make the between school rivalry a double occasion with between school contest and the center test running close by one another – Copperfield will be hard to beat in both!”
