I rarely have the opportunity to take key stage assemblies so it was a pleasure this morning to spend time with key stage 4. We reflected on the Christmas story, on kindness and enjoyed some singing and dancing at the end of the assembly. As ever our pupils were keen to join in and took […]

He is pictured with his instructor who was also promoted at the ceremony, with a few of his martial arts colleagues (including his sister and cousin […]

Our reunion disco this evening was a fantastic night out! It was so good to welcome back so many former pupils! The evening was full of happy reunion: almost all of the class of 2016 returned as did many of the class of 2017. There was lots of talking and even more dancing!  Many thanks […]

In addition to his course at Bromley college he has been offered paid employment one day each week at Radobank in Cannon St.  This is fantastic news for Shomari and very encouraging […]

Harry and Elizabeth were so happy with their prizes. I last saw Kieron at the Camberwell community forum and we had […]
