Jan Taylor, chief executive of The Pilgrim Multi Academy Trust, said: "We brought two teams from each school site together to play football, and spend time with each other.

"Our sports coach Matt Thacker lead the event and from September it is hoped that he will work on all three sites developing skills from reception class upwards.

“The trust is a small trust made up of three schools and we are also the trust that has been allocated the new free school at Rochester Riverside, due to open September 2021, so we have a very exciting future ahead."
