On Monday 10th December 2018 we are having a Curriculum Drop-Down Day. This means that as well as having some of their normal lessons students between Years 7-11 will also be having some special sessions on some different topics. Students will have 2 normal lessons and 3 special sessions on the day. The overall theme for the day is ‘Respect’ and the sessions will cover topics such as E-Safety, Respecting the Environment, Respecting each other and Respecting the Law. There will also be opportunities for some student to look at vocational skills.
The school day timings will be as normal and students should attend in full uniform as normal. They should also go to their normal classrooms for the sessions unless told otherwise.

On Thursday 14th June, five of our Year 12 students travelled to the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in Bloomsbury to take part in the Brilliant club’s Scholars Programme Graduation even. This was the culmination of two terms of university standard study by our five students. They had an excellent day and were highly praised by both the Brilliant club staff and SOAS Student Ambassadors for their behaviour, engagement and fantastic attitude.
We were shown around the University, had a chance to speak to SOAS students about university, reflected on
Our students were amazing leaders in a recent Sports Day held at St. John & St. James Primary School. The day began with each leader being attached to a House team. They organised the team and led the group in their house chanting for the track events. Once this had finished our leaders ran all of the field and fun events designed to engage every student. They did a fantastic job and were highly commended by the staff at the school. A special well done to Daniel Weekes who was nominated a ‘Leader of the Day’.

Pictured at the Victorious Temple’s House who stormed to victory in the recent Football event. The team dominated from an early stage and showed outstanding resilience and sportsmanship to take the title. Overall all of the Year 7’s were a credit to the school leaving the decision for the player of the tournament a very difficult one. Pictured is the overall winner Jamal who scored a great solo goal and raised his team’s spirits throughout every game.
Well done all!! Mr Jennings
A special thank you to the large number of students who regularly attend Allotment Club. We have plants growing and students who are keen to learn how to nurture crops to develop them. We would love to see more students coming and sharing the workload of digging, watering, weeding and most importantly having fun!!!

On Friday 25th May our Local MP Joan Ryan visited school to meet members of Year 12 who have taken part in the Brilliant club’s Scholars Programme this year. The Brilliant club is a charity that exists to increase the number of pupils from under-represented backgrounds to progress to highly selective universities. They do this by enrolling PhD students to share their expertise with state schools as part-time tutors.
