Year 7 Trial Examinations

Dear Parent/Guardian

After the Easter holidays, your son/daughter will sit assessments in all subjects. The assessments will take place mostly during normal lessons and in their normal classrooms. For English, Maths and Science students will sit their exams in the hall so that they start to experience what more formal examinations are like. We want all students to fulfil their potential and strive to perform as well as they can in these important assessments. The results will help us to measure the progress they have made during the year.

Year 7 Geography

Students in Year 7 took their learning outside this week to encourage the link between the classroom and the real world.  Our students have been studying Weather and Climate and with the recent range of weather experienced in the UK we felt it was important to get out and explore matters further.  In this lesson we looked at the different cloud types and students were able to identify them and consider what types of clouds are associated with rain.

Mr Jennings – Head of Geography

Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9)

We offer a varied and interesting approach to geography based on the National Curriculum. Geography is concerned with interrelationships between people, landscapes, economic, and ecological systems. It is hoped that by studying geography, pupils will develop an interest in the subject, an enquiring mind, and a concern for the future of the planet upon which they live. Students begin their GCSE course at the end of Year 9.

Key Stage 4 (GCSE)

The new AQA GCSE covers four units, incorporated into three exams at the end of Year 11:

Paper 1 = ‘Living with the physical environment’ (35%)

Paper 2 = ‘Challenges in the human environment’ (35%)

Paper 3 =  ‘Geographical Applications’ (30%)

Bishop Stopford’s School Golden Jubilee – Choral Evensong 24th February 2018

Former Chaplain, Father Stephen Taylor, preached on the school, the traditions, the example set by Dr Roberts and the future.

The choir sung beautifully and the service was a real example of God’s Glory, which is truly embedded in the life of the school.
