Sam from Year 7 and Max from Year 8 represented the professional football club, Stevenage FC, in Italy recently. They both played in groups that were one year older than them, playing against teams from Rimini, Cesena and Forli, over a period of a week. With wins, draws and losses, this was an incredible experience for our two students.


A group of enthusiastic Year 8 Geography students took part in an enrichment session recently related to crime, which is a topic that they are studying in Geography this year.

They were required to solve a theft that happened in 2012 during the Olympic Games, with real evidence and a police officer to guide them.



A group of students in the Year 9 Text programme participated in a Lag B’Omer Yom Iyun yesterday. The theme of the day was of personal growth throughout the period of the Omer, the time of the Jewish year between Pesach and Shavuot.  It was a day of learning, singing, dancing and fun activities rounded off with a delicious barbeque. The day was run in conjunction with Tribe at Hendon United Synagogue and an enjoyable time was had by all.


Year 7 student, Joshua, representing the charity ‘Best Beginnings’ was privileged to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as well as Prince Harry this week. The Royals were thrilled to announce a new campaign called ‘Heads Together’, which will be a year-long collaboration with six other charities,together with 'Best Beginnings', aiming to change the conversation about mental health in the UK.
