We would like to invite you and your child to a GCSE information evening on Wednesday 18th October. Year 9 / 10 is a crucial time for all students to create strong and firm foundations for their GCSE’s and in turn this information evening is an opportunity for us to provide you and your child with guidance and advice on how to manage this very important part of their educational career.
An open evening in order to see the excellent sixth provision and opportunities. There will be key speakers providing vital information and opportunities to meet subject staff and gain valuable insight into the Stopfordian family at Key Stage 5.
Application forms for 2018/19
Bishop Stopford’s School is extremely proud of its 2017 examination results. Our staff, students and parents have worked tirelessly throughout the last academic year; contributing to our best ever GCSE results. The School’s results show a significant improvement on last year and prove that the School continues to provide good outcomes for all its students.
Good morning, I would like to ask for your help to encourage as many parents and pupils as possible to complete our on-line survey. I will leave the survey open until November 17 and everyone who takes part will be entered into a draw to win a kindle fire and case. We are a customer focused service and feedback is very important to us.
Dear Parents and Carers
I am delighted to welcome you to Bishop Stopford’s School, an Outstanding Christian School, which opened in 1967. This academic year we will be celebrating 50 years of high achievement and academic excellence and I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of this marvellous school.
Parents and Carers are invited to the SEND Policy Review on the 5th May at 10.00am.
If you would like to attend please contact C. Hart (SENCO)
Dear Parents / Carers
I would like to wish you all a happy, blessed and Holy Easter. The term has sped by as usual and we are now in our last day in school. I have just spoken to our Year 11 students in assembly to wish them well in their Easter revision. Many of them will be in school over the next two weeks for additional lessons, consolidating learning or revising. I’m sure you will encourage your child, if in year 11, to attend every one of these sessions.
We are sad to announce that the school’s former Head Teacher, Brian Pickard, passed away on Thursday 26th November. Mr Pickard was appointed as Deputy Head Master in 1977, and taught languages. He was appointed Head Master in 1988 upon the retirement of Dr Roberts. In his time he oversaw many developments in the life of the school including the opening of the Jubilee Wing (the Science Block) which was opened in 1995. He retired in 2001, but was a regular visitor to the school, most recently being with us for Speech day 2014. His portrait hangs in the school hall as a mark of his dedication and service to the Stopfordian family. Mr Pickard and his family will be remembered in our school prayers. May he rest in peace.
It is with deepest sadness that we announce the death of our school Business Manager Ben Calverley. Ben passed away peacefully last Thursday night.
Ben joined the Stopfordian family in 2010 and has played an instrumental role in the re-branding of the school.
He worked closely with all the staff and was well known for his caring and thoughtful way of detailing with all situations he encountered.
As the Stopfordian Business Manager he always had the interests of the pupils close to his heart and was seen daily in the canteen and playground in conversation with the pupils.
Ben’s passing will be explained to the pupils in their assemblies this week and a candle will burn alongside a picture of Ben in the school chapel. All Stopfordian’s will have the opportunity to visit the chapel to reflect on Ben.
We ask that you remember Ben, his wife and sons in your prayers.
May he rest in peace.
There were many happy smiling Sixth Form students in school on Thursday 13th August as they received their A Level and Btec results. Some notable success stories were Elendra Stafford-Williams who achieved A*AA in Maths, Chemistry and Physics; Natasha Morgan-Springer, who gained A*BB in Sociology, English Literature and History and Nonso Efobi who achieved ABC in Maths, Chemistry and Physics. Many of our Year 13 students woke up this morning to text messages informing them that they had offers from their firm or insurance choice universities.
Bishop Peter Wheatley, the Bishop of Edmonton, retired from service in style on Sunday 25th January by leading a service at St Paul’s Cathedral in honour of his ministry. St Paul’s was packed as members of churches from Enfield, Haringey, Camden and Barnet joined together to give thanks.
The year 9 students are currently preparing to choose their options.Prior to their options evening on the 29th of January 2015, the students participated in a Careers Carousel where they each had an opportunity to meet at least three interesting professionals from different careers who shared their work life experiences and to spend time discussing career options with each of them. There were professionals from areas including the police, electrical, healthcare, law, engineering, art, music, hospitality management and catering and sports to name a few.
The event was a highly successful and enjoyed by not only the students but the volunteers as well.
