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.

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.
Year 9’s worked in Design Technology to produce a wall display for the canteen. The display is a reproduction of The Eatwell Guide which represents the government’s recommendation on healthy eating and achieving a balanced diet.
Students worked industriously, applying their skills and knowledge of textiles, graphics and resistant materials to produce colourful and creative food items.
Students had to design a streamlined rocket that was able to launch an egg and return it to earth unbroken. This was a fun, but very wet challenge enjoyed by all.. Students had to design a NASA style logo for their rocket and stick to a budget when designing their finished article,. Students completed a project brief illustrating why they chose certain features of their rocket.
On Thursday 7th July Bishop Rob, the Bishop Edmonton, visited us to celebrate the school’s Foundation. The service saw the presentation of the school scrolls, by the newly appointed prefects and Bishop Rob preached about the importance of values and community. It was a fantastic occasion with the pupil worship group leading all the singing, the School Choir performing under the leadership of Karen Gibson and the steel pan group playing the processional music. Prayers were offered by the Year 7 students for the Stopfordian family and benefactors of the school as the school moves into its 49th year.
Eid al-Fitr is an important Islamic holiday for Muslim communities across the United Kingdom. This event involves many Muslims waking up early and praying either at an outdoor prayer ground or a mosque. People dress in their finest clothes and adorn their homes with lights and other decorations.
On Friday 24th June Water Explorer (Geography Club) hosted its very own ‘water festival’. We celebrated access to clean and healthy water, at the same time creating awareness of those people around the world less fortunate than us.
We set up stalls and played games to raise money for the ‘water explorer’ charity. These included:
Guess the number of sweets in the bottle (Congratulations to Ja’lan from 7M who guessed the closest number to 143 sweets!)
·Bowling over water bottles as skittles
Overall the club are succeeding in many great challenges, and are well on their way receiving an award at a presentation in London.
