Bishop Stopford’s School is extremely dedicated to both the school community and local community. Within this section you will find information and examples of the work that is done by the school to enhance personal development and well being both in school and within the surrounding community.
We are also proud to present the School Charity, Hillcrest, and Aids charity in South Africa as well as our House charities.
Suffolk’s School visit
This week Bishop Stopford’s School welcomed 100 year one and two pupils from Suffolks primary school, to watch our fantastic Year 11 dance group. They performed the dance that was highly praised at the Enfield Dance Festival in February. The primary school children were really excited to watch the performance and they asked our students lots of probing questions about dancing. It was a wonderful morning enjoyed by all.
Hillcrest Aids Centre, South Africa
Bishop Stopford’s School charity is the Hillcrest Aids Centre Trust.
Hillcrest Aids Centre Trust is a charity that raises money to support Aids orphans and township schools facing the impact of high levels of Aids orphans, in the Valley of a Thousand Hills near Durban, South Africa.
Every penny raised supports pupils and schools in the area through the Hillcrest Aids Centre,http://www.hillaids.org.za/.
Bishop Stopford’s School has supported the Charity for over nine years.
We would like to thank Nando’s Enfield for supporting us with our charity events over the Summer.

Children in Need 2012
We raised in excess of £3,000 for this year’s Children in Need Appeal by running a non-stop Bounceathon. We had a great time and it was really satisfying to have raised so much, alhtough it was good to get some sleep over the weekend! We were even on the BBC’s live show at 7:45pm on Saturday night.
