Debating success in the first round of the ESU Schools' Mace
The Sixth Form Senior Prefect team are fundraising for Great Ormond Street Hospital. Every day more than 600 seriously ill children and young people from across the UK are being treated at GOSH, some with incredibly complex and serious conditions. The staff, both medical and non-medical, are praised by the patients and parents alike for their dedication, kindness and unfailing support. It is a very worthy charity and, as a school also working with young people, it seems very fitting that we should do our best to support GOSH. Please give generously. We have put this on ParentPay to make it easier to donate if you wish to do so.
Over the past year and a half, like all hospitals, GOSH have faced extremely difficult conditions with coronavirus, but have continued to pioneer in children's healthcare.
Now more than ever it is important that we try and support such an overwhelmingly admiral institution in anyway we can, and so as a school we are taking part in the RBC Run For The Kids, to try and raise money for GOSH, so that they can keep helping as many children as they can.
Please pick up a sponsorship form from the main school reception or S2 in the Sixth From House.
On Monday 11 October we celebrated Black History Month in a whole school assembly.
Last week several of our students joined forces with other students from Acland Burghley to sell our own grown fruit and vegetable at Inverness Street Market in Camden.

Friday 15 October 11 - 2pm
We held a week-long Summer School to prepare year 7 students for the transition to year 8.
The week consisted of a blend of academic education and enrichment activities, supporting attending pupils in making up for some of their missed education over the pandemic.
Students said they thoroughly enjoyed the week with most stating that the experience made them feel more confident about returning to school. Pupils that attended enjoyed meeting new teachers and making new friends, as well as getting opportunities to work on a wide variety of activities from drama, maths problem-solving to basketball. They have also created a fantastic mural to commemorate 150 years since the founding of the school and in recognition of this extraordinary period in the school’s history.
‘It was helpful that some of the activities were held in parts of the school our year had not had access to in the previous academic year, because it made me a little more familiar with the school. Cooking/baking the pizza rolls was a lot of fun to do. It was also very nice to have a choice (on Thursday) between what activities we could take part in! The week was a lot of fun! - Maja Y8
Overall it was a really enjoyable week for all involved and the teachers were all incredibly impressed with how hardworking and engaged all the pupils were!
