OUR SCHOOL CAPTAINS ARE AMAZING! #WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!
These are an amazing group of young people. They wear their Captains ties with pride. Every day they do our school proud, helping with duties on corridors, offering to help teachers in lessons and in the library. Their manners are exemplary and they lead by example. On Wednesday 18th the majority of them were helping Y10 Parents at the Parents Evening. They are involved in different areas of school life including Mental Health Ambassadors, Eco Warriors and Restorative Peer Mentors to name but a few!
Some of them have also been Reading Mentors with Y7 & 8's and the majority of them have taken part in the Duke Of Edinburgh Awards.
Last week four of them made an excellent presentation to the Senior Leadership Team. High on their agenda is to take action to develop and improve community work, to become an eco-school and to focus on improving mental health. They then gave presentations in all the year group assemblies across the week. Well done to Anouk, Loki, Maria and Misha!
School Captains... we are making the most of the time we have left with you! (and of course the rest of year 11, you too!)

We are so proud of our Y8 girls football team who beat every school in Lewisham to get to the final last week at the Millwall schools’ tournament.
The ladies lost 1-O in the final to a team they’d already beaten in the first round! Very frustrating for them, but they were outstanding in terms of togetherness, communication, teamwork and leadership.
Well done girls!
