Extra-Curricular Activities

I am delighted to attach the most up-to-date timetable of our Extra-Curricular Activities at the Bishop Stopford’s School.  Our committed staff will once again deliver a comprehensive Enrichment programme.
 
I hope you will take the time to speak to your child about making the effort to attend these free activities.  Our school ethos is firmly based in the ‘Strive for Five’ approach to learning and these activities will support your child in becoming a rounded student.  In addition educational research has shown that the increased effort and resilience associated with pursuing such activities can raise attainment in the classroom.
 
I look forward to seeing your child at these activities and hope they ignite an interest that can be nurtured further.

Year 10 Sports Leaders working with the Local Community

WP_20180621_10_21_12_Pro (2)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’.
