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.
End of term arrangements, 24 March 2016: Years 7 – 10 dismissal from 11.30 onwards. Years 11 – 13, lessons as normal until end of period 5. Happy Easter everyone!
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.
Following our OfSTED inspection, I am delighted to be able to tell you that we have been judged overall as a “Good” school! In addition inspectors have found that the behaviour of our students in and around school and in lessons is outstanding.
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.
