Y10 Football Triumph

Y10 had a disappointing season last year and with a new manager in Mr Gallacher there was a degree of renewed optimism in the air. The team took on a new look with new faces and played a 2-2-3-2-1 formation. Mr Gallacher delivered a passionate team talk and instilled his confidence in Kodel to wear the captains armband. The Bishops team started well and dominated procession with the combination of Mete, Kodel and Walid in the middle. Emmanuel took on the challenge of filling in as centre back and had his own David and Goliath story. Continue reading



As part of the challenge days, students will be asked to run the race for life which will be held on the school field. Students will be asked to collect donations using the just giving page. Students will be asked to bring fancy dress so to make it even more enjoyable and fun. The race for life event is held to raise awareness of cancer and to help fight this horrible disease that affects so many of us.

Our aim is to reach minimum £500 which is an amount I think we can achieve.

The key aims of the PE department are to maintain or stimulate student interest and enjoyment in physical education and to promote health and fitness for current and future lifestyles through engaging in purposeful physical activity. Students help develop their academic, physical and social capabilities through competition and co-operation.

Athletics_picThe facilities at the School include a sports hall, gymnasium, weight training room, tennis/netball courts and an onsite field with football, hockey, rugby pitches as well as a cricket table and an artificial cricket wicket.

The curriculum is broad, including a variety of games, gymnastics, athletics and dance. There are well established and successful GCSE and A level PE courses and the Community Sports Leaders Award course is offered in the Sixth Form.

There is an extensive extra-curricular provision and fixture list which gives opportunities for many students to participate and compete. These opportunities include clubs, coaching/practice sessions and fixtures ranging from friendly games, festivals, Borough Leagues, Cup and Championships through to County Cups, Championships and National competitions. Students have achieved honours in a variety of sports at County and National level.

Healthy competition, citizenship, fair play and co-operation are encouraged and demonstrated by students.

Boys and girls win North London Finals!

The year 8 girls stormed to their second victory in the north London finals today at Edmonton leisure centre.

They started off strongly winning the first obstacle relay and it just went from strength to strength, winning most of the track races, dropping only two points. The field events were outstanding, with great performances across all events. The final event saw the girls a whole lap ahead of the rest of the field! This is a fantastic achievement to win the north London finals twice and progress to the London finals where they will be hoping to regain their title as London Champions.

Again just like the girls, they dominated the field events, and then stormed away to lead by a lap in the final relay of the day.
