Y10 Football Triumph

Y10 had a disappointing season last year and with a new manager in Mr Gallacher there was a degree of renewed optimism in the air. The team took on a new look with new faces and played a 2-2-3-2-1 formation. Mr Gallacher delivered a passionate team talk and instilled his confidence in Kodel to wear the captains armband. The Bishops team started well and dominated procession with the combination of Mete, Kodel and Walid in the middle. Emmanuel took on the challenge of filling in as centre back and had his own David and Goliath story. Continue reading

Anti-bullying campaign, Internet Safety & Anti Bullying workshops

As part of our ongoing anti-bullying campaign, Internet Safety & Anti Bullying workshops will be taking place throughout the day on Tuesday 8th July.

These workshops will be led by an outside organisation known as ECP and will offer guidance to students in Year 7-10 regarding internet safety and dealing with incidents of cyberbullying should they occur.


Just to let you know that our students delivered a fantastic performance at the Drama competition today and really held their own against much older students. Although we didn’t win, we were commended for our script and the message it delivered.

Thanks for everyone who came along to support – it’s much appreciated.

Founder’s Day

Founder’s Day is an annual celebration and tradition that is now being celebrated on Wednesday 9th July at 2pm in the school hall.

This visiting preaching is Pastor Gavin Childress, from the Grace Baptist Church in Tottenham. Pastor Gavin has written books on the teachings found in Luke’s Gospel and is a Stopfordian parent.

The service is a celebration of the life of the school and has taken place annually since it’s foundation in 1967. Each year the newly appointed prefects present the school roll and a camomile plant. This traditional dates back to the first Head Teacher Dr Roberts who used the Shakespearean phrase to illustrate one of the many strengths of the school.




‘The camomile, the more it is trodden on, the faster it grows’.

Carterhatch Junior School visit to BSS

Members of the Science Department have visited Brimsdown and Carterhatch Schools and presented a Science Road Show to year 4 and 5 students. This week year 5 students came to work in our Science Labs and learnt how to make Rainbow Fizz and carry out Flame Tests. To end their visit they saw Science teachers make a jelly baby scream and their teachers bravely hold fire in their hands.

Science Trip to Orlando, USA 2015


PowerPoint Presentation



Dear Parent / Guardian,

I am writing this letter to inform you of an educational trip being organised by the science department at Bishop Stopford’s School. We plan to take a group of 30 students to Orlando in the United States of America.  This trip has been designed to inspire and encourage our students to further their science education at A Level and University Level.  Pupils need a minimum of two good GCSE passes in sciences to achieve the English Baccalaureate at KS4. It is therefore imperative that we promote and encourage the study of science.  This trip is both educational and fun.

I wanted to share some good news – if you see Rhys Lanahan or Kazeem Sarumi in Year 11, please give them a pat on the back for this!

Saatchi Gallery

GCSE Y11 Art Gallery Trip

During the Easter Break Y11 Art class visited The Saatchi Gallery.  The trip was planned to help students develop work for their forthcoming 2014 Summer Art Exam Theme: ‘Order and or Disorder’.

The Saatchi Gallery is one of London’s leading galleries for emerging artists which presents an exhibition of 20 international artists, including many featured in Saatchi Art’s One-to-Watch and Invest in Art series which highlights emerging artists of particular note. All students conducted themselves accordingly and proved to be a great credit to our school.

Focus for Lent

PDuring Lent we will be challenging our students to be aware of how they live their lives within the Christian Ethos. To assist them we will be focussing on 4 celebrities who have proclaimed themselves as Christians. The pupils will be asked to explore how and why these celebrities became Christian, while examining ways their faith is displayed in their lives. This will then lead to a personal reflection.

The Celebrities are Reverend Run, Christine Ohuruogu, Selena Gomez and Kaka.

Please feel free to join us in our Lent Focus as we examine ways Christians live their lives in today’s world.
