Work the Change Day

On Friday 23rd October all Year 10 pupils will be working on a ‘Work the Change Day’. This is part of their careers education and will be focused on looking at the skills that will be beneficial post school. Eg What Employers want? Time management and team work. At the day will enable all students to prepare for work by setting personal goals and constructing a CV. The day will be led by ambassadors from Peace Child International. Peace Child empowers young people to inform themselves, take action and be the change they want to see in the world.

This year was the first EMS Piano Competition. We entered Fung-Yee Poon (Year 11) who managed to achieve a runner up (2nd) place out of 76 pianists entered from all the schools in the Borough.

Official photographs of this event were taken by Stephen Scrase. I understand that he will be putting these photos online over the weekend so they should be available to purchase by the beginning of next week. These will be available at They will be in a gallery called “Gallery 16366 PianoFestival” and can be accessed by logging in with username: MUSIC and password: PIANO

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.
