As we approach the 100 Year anniversary of Armistice Day on 11th November 2018 some of our students are participating in enrichment activities in local and National events to mark this important day in our history. Zunara will march for the Sea Cadets at the Lord Mayor’s Show in London and also the Enfield Memorial event whilst Payishka will mark the event with the local Ambulance Cadets. We are proud to see our students working in community activities beyond the school.
Bishops have been competing at a high level across the borough this term with some impressive performances. Every year group has been in action either against local schools or in the school inter-house sport. The highlights are as follows:
Please note a change in the timetable for this. In light of the recent change in weather it is important that your child brings suitable clothing to protect themselves and ensure that they are able to participate fully in period 5 lessons after lunch. Mr Jennings
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.
As we draw to the end of another Academic year I would like to thank the students, parents and staff for what has been an incredibly special and successful year for Bishop Stopford’s School. As you will be aware this is our Golden Jubilee year and what bet ter way to celebrate than with a visit from the Bishop of London and a fabulous Ofsted.

Bishop Stopfords would like to invite you to step back in time, to see the wonderful production of ‘The Importance of being Earnest’ a piece performed by our 6th form students for their A Level exam that received rapturous applause, that we felt it would be a travesty to not bring it to our main stage and to enable all that wished to, to see it. Tickets can be purchased from Miss Dorrington at the minimal cost of £2 or £1 (concessions) concessions are students or OAP’s.
The sun was shining all day long to make the conditions for the 2018 Borough Athletics pretty difficult for all the competitors, however some of our Bishops Athletes has some outstanding individual performances that must be noted.
