Our mission is to provide first rate teaching, learning and extra-curricular activities within a caring and supportive Christian environment. We are extremely proud of our students and our successes and achievements in recent years.

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.

Science Trip to Orlando, USA 2015


PowerPoint Presentation



Dear Parent / Guardian,

I am writing this letter to inform you of an educational trip being organised by the science department at Bishop Stopford’s School. We plan to take a group of 30 students to Orlando in the United States of America.  This trip has been designed to inspire and encourage our students to further their science education at A Level and University Level.  Pupils need a minimum of two good GCSE passes in sciences to achieve the English Baccalaureate at KS4. It is therefore imperative that we promote and encourage the study of science.  This trip is both educational and fun.

DATES: 27th of March 2015- 4th of April 2015

LOCATION: Camp Kennedy Space Centre

I wanted to share some good news – if you see Rhys Lanahan or Kazeem Sarumi in Year 11, please give them a pat on the back for this!
