On Tuesday 20th December the school hall was crammed full of students and parents for the school carol service. There were some excellent readings by the students and fantastic singing by the Worship Group and the School Choir. The service ended with a celebration of light with ‘glow sticks’ to mark the words from John Ch1. ‘Everything that was created received its life from him, and his life gave light to everyone.’
To mark the end of term the entire Stopfordian family met together in the Sports Hall. Mrs Day and Mr Seabrook led the assembly and focused on the words from the nativity story, ‘Peace on earth. Good will to all men.’ This was linked to our Stopfordian Ethos, there was reflection on the past term and time to look ahead.
As the term draws to a close, I would like to thank you for your support in all the work the school has done with our students since September. The Year 11 pupils are about to undertake their mock exams and our Year 7s are now very much part of the Stopfordian Family.
This year sees the launch of the School’s first Christmas Fete on the 9th December. This event is being run and organised by our Sixth Form students on behalf of the homeless charity Crisis. Students, parents, family and friends are welcome to attend this event from 3.30pm-7pm. As a result, the inset day planned for Friday, 9th of December, will be moved to Monday, 12th December. The School will therefore be closed to students on this day.
The school choir have been getting into the festival mood and were invited to open the Enfield Christmas Market on Thursday 15th December, singing festive music under the bandstand in Enfield town centre. They also have performed at Sainsbury’s on the Great Cambridge Road and played a key role in the school carol service. Continue reading to see the photos Continue reading
On Friday 9th December the first Bishop Stopford’s Christmas Fayre was a tremendous success. Organised and run by the Year 13 prefect team the event attracted many outside businesses as well as staff and pupil run stalls. Father Christmas was in a generous mood and over £600 was raised for the charity Crisis and the Enfield Food Bank. A BIG thank you to everyone who supported the event, we’re already looking forward to next year’s fayre already.

I am writing to invite you to our E-safety Parent information evening on Tuesday 6th of December at 6.00pm, which will last no longer than an hour.
In the digital age in which we live, there are many ways that young people can communicate with other people. This session is a ‘must’ for all those who are concerned about the safety of their children when using technology.
I would like to invite you to the evening for parents of students in Year 7 which will be held on:
WEDNESDAY 23rd November 2016
in the Main Hall from 5.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m.
I would like to invite you attend the Parents’ Evening for Year 7 students. This is an excellent opportunity for all parents and guardians to come along and meet the members of staff who have been teaching your children. For this evening, we are using an online appointment system which will give you the chance to make a 5 minute appointment with each of your child’s subject teachers to discuss progress and achievement.
Students at Bishop Stopford’s School make good progress under new government measures. Congratulations to all the students who have just received their exam results. Mrs Day would like to thank the students, parents and teachers who have all worked very hard in delivering these results. The students were committed and focused throughout the exam period and this has paid off with terrific outcomes with some of our best students getting A*/A grades across the board.
We look forward to this year and the exciting new specifications for many A level and GCSE courses. No doubt our students will once again commit to their studies with enthusiasm and determination and far exceed every expectation.
The Sixth Form are launching a book club to which staff are invited.
The first book will be ‘The Book Thief’ by Markus Zusak. If you’d like to take part please read the book and we will have a discussion group in the new library 4 weeks into the next half term – around about 25th November. Please let me know if you are taking part so that I have an idea of numbers.
Many thanks, Rob Smith.
Last week, ten lucky Year 8 students who are part of the Geography ‘Water Explorer’ Club, were invited to visit HSBC Headquarters in Canary Wharf. Chosen from 500 teams from across the country; Tylan, Zayn, Reilly, Savvas, Antonio, Alexander, Anna, Rachael, Rianna and Pilar competed at the National Celebration Event.
We hope you find the information in this evening useful and accessible. It will help you to support your son/daughter through the next two years of their compulsory education.
On Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th July the school underwent a SIAMS inspection. A SIAMS inspection focuses on the distinctive Christian nature of the school, the quality of the worship and the teaching and learning within the RE department. The outcome was extremely positive and Bishop Stopford’s was graded OUTSTANDING across all aspects of the inspection.
