Monday 27th January 2020 marked 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, a concentration camp during the Second World War.

Scouts last week spent their meeting listening to the story of one of the survivors. Scouts went on to reflect of what they have to be thankful for whilst making Memorial Flames which will form part of the new Scout display board going up in the next few weeks.        

Mr M Rainsbury —  Group Leader 8th Hillingdon Scouts

KS5 Pathway 1 have started Work Experience at a local care home.  They have been planting tomato seeds and raking leaves in he communal gardens.  Great team effort and a positive start.    Miss Bonnar—Faculty Lead—Pathway 1

Mrs Wilkes in the Library has a special area set up on the theme of ‘Space’.  8LD really enjoyed their visit.  They had a space story read to them and they all had a photo in the astronauts suit.  Quotes from the class: “that was so cool”I want to be an astronaut” and “can we come back again?”   

Mrs Daniels—Teacher, Class 8LD


Another successful trip for the under 16 team to the South London Special League. The team included two new faces to the squad, who settled in really well. The team conducted themselves very well throughout the day and were a credit to the school. Sanif was the player of the tournament, scoring two goals. Well done to the team!   

Mr M Vincent—Faculty Leader—PE

Term Dates—Just in case you missed them last week, please find attached a list of term dates for next school year (September 2020 to July 2021).

Crime and robbery have increased, including those targeting young people.  

There is a website/database where gadgets and bikes can be registered, so that when there is a stop and search or items are found in a raid they can be checked and possibly reunited with their owner. It also helps prove that individuals are involved in crime.

An organisation called 'Brilliant Parents' are currently commissioned by the London Borough of Hillingdon to deliver parenting programmes across the borough. They have the following programmes taking place in the Spring term:  Please also see the two flyers attached to this bulletin for further information about Brilliant Parents and how to make direct contact to confirm interest or you can email here
