End of Term Letter

Dear Families,
As we draw to the end of our academic year, I would like to thank the students, parents and staff for what has been another incredibly successful year for Bishop Stopford’s School.
This year we have been reviewing our vision and values to ensure that they enable the school to provide the best possible provision and give the students the best possible grounding for a successful future. The vision seeks to encompass our desire for success, our core values and our underlying Christian Ethos, whilst retaining our strong sense of belonging and family. It gives me great pleasure to be able to share the vision with you now that this have been ratified by Governors.

On Tuesday 16th July, Bishop Stopford’s staff and students came together to complete a whole school charity walk in association with Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life schools programme. Ms Williams and Ms Miller were on hand during lunch time selling cakes to prepare students for the event and raise some extra money for the charity. After lunch break we set off at 2pm completing a 45 minute walk around the school site, each lap was 1km in distance and participants could choose the rate at which they competed. It was a fantastic event where the whole school came together in order to raise awareness and money for an important charity. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all participants and thank you for all donations made. Bishop Stopford’s looks forward to organising more events for deserving charities in the future.

SchoolWalk - 23

As a result of the school cake sale and donations made both on the day and online we have raised over £900 in total for Cancer Research!

Congratulations to King Alfred’s house who emerged clear winners. However, if you could remind pupils that anyone who took part earned their house points, and that everyone should be proud of their efforts.



logoBishop Stopford’s School is hosting a special event on the school’s site on Tuesday 16th July, 2:00pm as part of Race for Life’s schools programme.

All students will join forces with the teaching and non-teaching staff, to take on cancer and walk, jog or run in aid of Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work.

To help the pupils prepare, teachers have been using a schools’ resource kit specially created by the charity which includes everything needed to stage the event as well as an assembly plan and top fundraising tips.

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, in partnership with Tesco, is an inspiring series of events which raises millions of pounds every year to help fund vital research.
