Dear Parent(s)/Carer(s) of students in YEAR 12
I would like to invite you to an information evening on the date shown above. This will be a valuable opportunity for you to meet with the subject staff who are teaching your son or daughter and to find about key events and information throughout Year 12. This will also be an opportunity to meet the sixth form leadership team.
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.
- As you are approaching the end of the academic year, you need to start considering what course you’ll be studying and where you’re going to study it.
- This booklet is aimed at year 12 students who will be entering university, as undergraduates, in 2017. You need to, therefore, start visiting universities in 2016 to give you a good idea of where you’d like to study.
Refreshments will be available from 5.30 p.m.
with the presentation of the Sixth Form experience
commencing at 6.00 p.m.
Deciding what to do at the end of year 11 can be confusing and worrying, but our Sixth Form Open Evening will help you to make important decisions about your future.

Bishop Stopford’s School is celebrating a year of outstanding A Level results. Charlie Greensmith, head boy, is one of those celebrating. He achieved one A* grade and 2 grade As and is off to Plymouth University to study Dentistry. Tunde Ayoola, Deputy Head boy, achieved 3 grade As. He has been offered a place at Birmingham University to study Chemical Engineering with an integrated Masters. Tunde said that “despite set-backs at times, I’ve enjoyed every step of my journey at Bishop stopford’s and any difficulties I’ve had have just made these results even sweeter” The school has also seen 12 students gain places in top Russell Group universities to study courses as diverse as English with American Studies, Chemical engineering and Podiatry.
6th Form Enrolment will be from Friday 5th September until Friday 19th September
Adrenalin was pumping and knuckles were white as a group of 30 Yr12 and 13 students visited Team Sport’s Go Karting track in Edmonton on Wednesday 9th of July. Students and staff had a fantastic time hurtling around the indoor track at what seemed like break-neck speeds and some serious competition took place during the races. Special mention needs to go to Charlie
Greensmith – winner of two heats and overall fastest lap; Yakup Yalcintepe and Ruby Robinson also won both their heats and Oliver Warren drove a blinder, keeping Mr. Smith in third place in their first heat. There was huge enthusiasm amongst the students, one asking if there was any way we could get Go Karting onto the curriculum. We will be taking another even larger group of budding Lewis Hamiltons to the track again next Wednesday and very much hope to run this trip again next term.
Last week students in the lower sixth visited Brunel University in London. The trip was planned to help the students explore the biomedical science prospects available to us in higher Education and to get a glimpse of university life.
First we visited the lab where we were given a presentation on undergraduate options at Brunel. This was followed by a session in the lab where we extracted DNA from our cheek cells and placed it in vials to take home.
We ended our trip with a tour of the university, viewing the halls, library and the gym that Usian Bolt used during the 2012 Summer Olympics. It was an interesting experience and I can now show anyone who is interested – my DNA.
Bishop Stopford’s Sixth form celebrate the end of their exams with a BBQ on Friday 27th June. Students received their year books and enjoyed relaxing and saying farewell to their teachers and friends. We will next meet up on results day in August. We wish the year 13’s great success and look forward to hearing about the next steps in their journeys.
