It was a a friendly but competitive atmosphere to celebrate the World Cup Tournament taking place at the moment. Despite intense heat we saw fantastic performances and team work from the dedicated Year 8 boys who pushed physical boundaries in their games. Overall top performances came from Eric in 8P and Anas 8L who displayed excellent awareness and quality control. Pictured are some of the victorious players. Well done all!

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’.

Pictured at the Victorious Temple’s House who stormed to victory in the recent Football event. The team dominated from an early stage and showed outstanding resilience and sportsmanship to take the title. Overall all of the Year 7’s were a credit to the school leaving the decision for the player of the tournament a very difficult one. Pictured is the overall winner Jamal who scored a great solo goal and raised his team’s spirits throughout every game.
Well done all!! Mr Jennings
A special thank you to the large number of students who regularly attend Allotment Club. We have plants growing and students who are keen to learn how to nurture crops to develop them. We would love to see more students coming and sharing the workload of digging, watering, weeding and most importantly having fun!!!

On Thursday 5th July 2018, our school will be celebrating its Golden Jubilee with the Founders’ Day service and celebrations. This will be a whole school event.
We will be welcoming many dignitaries, past senior teachers, governors, the Mayor of Enfield and the Bishop of London, Dame Sarah Mullally, to our school for the day. This will be the new Bishop of London’s first formal educational event and it is a great honour that our school has been selected for the occasion.
6th – 9th July 2018 : Bishop Stopfords Year 10, will be attending their residential at Kingswood in Ashford, Kent. The Year 10’s are looking forward to being challenged not only with mind but also with spirit, working together to bring about collaborative results that show that team work really is best.
Students from Bishop Stopfords will be going to visit the amazing show called ‘Wicked’ there are still limited places available, tickets are £40.00 and include transport, ticket and insurance. We look forward to enjoying a show that brings all that is magical about musicals to life, along with a moral to the story of course, learning and enjoying a true reflection of Bishop Stopfords.
On Friday 25th May our Local MP Joan Ryan visited school to meet members of Year 12 who have taken part in the Brilliant club’s Scholars Programme this year. The Brilliant club is a charity that exists to increase the number of pupils from under-represented backgrounds to progress to highly selective universities. They do this by enrolling PhD students to share their expertise with state schools as part-time tutors.
Throughout the school year parental surveys are carried out during parent’s evenings and other school functions. To date the findings for the current academic Year Parental surveys have carried out have collated below.
Further surveys will be taking place at the parent’s evenings. If any parents missed this opportunity and would like to take part in a survey please contact the school office. Your voice is very important in helping us provide a top quality education for your children.
Thank you for joining us for another issue of Stopfordian Stars. We started the week with a sunny bank holiday and then had a number of days with 20+ degree weather, it looked like Spring had finally Sprung. This week, Behavior for Learning walks took place. Many staff members have commented on all the good work they are seeing in lessons. We want to thank you all for your continual hard work in ensuring this.
This week’s issue is full of praise for our hard working students.
Please see link for the full revision and exam schedule for Year 11. Until half term, students are expected to be in lessons when not in an exam. For afternoon exams, students are to arrive at break time and need to attend the exam warm up session. If see your Head of Year, Ms Folan, if there are any queries.
Please find below the most up-to-date timetable of our enrichment activities at the Bishop Stopford’s High School.
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.
