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.
Bishop Stopfords Drama Department are excited to be going back to the Rudolph Walker Inter School Drama Awards on the 1st July 2018, in the last two years we have won best overall production in 2016, Best male Actor 2017 so who know what this year will bring.
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.

After the Easter holidays, your son/daughter will sit assessments in all subjects. The assessments will take place mostly during normal lessons and in their normal classrooms. For English, Maths and Science students will sit their exams in the hall so that they start to experience what more formal examinations are like. We want all students to fulfil their potential and strive to perform as well as they can in these important assessments. The results will help us to measure the progress they have made during the year.
