The Year 9 and ear 13 artists in Rainham, next to the RSPB centre

14 artists from Year 9 and two sixth formers visited Rainham Marshes on 10 March as part of a project with the Wellcome Collection gallery.

During February, the Art Department won a competition to work with the Wellcome Collection around their current year-long exhibition Making Nature. In the next few months, artists from Years 9 and 13 will be working with the gallery and artist Verity-Jane Keefe. Throughout the next few months there will be a number of trips and workshops organised by the Wellcome Collection, concluding with pupils’ work being featured in the second part of the Making Nature exhibition.

Some of the artists taking photographs and sketches of the juxtaposition of nature and industry

The group of artists visited the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds’ (RSPB) nature reserve in Essex. An RSPB worker gave them a tour of the reserve and explained to them how the man-made reserve attempts to recreate nature. This gave the artists an unusual perspective on the theme of Making Nature and made them think about how it will not be just their artwork that makes nature, but also that it can reflect other methods of making nature.

The project will continue with a series of workshops at the school by Keefe and visits to the Making Nature exhibition.

The Year 7 squad after they sealed the league against Haggerston, with their manager Mr Russell

The Year 7 football team capped off a tremendous debut season by winning the Hackney and Tower Hamlets League without losing or drawing a single game.

The boys confirmed their league title on 4 March with a 8-0 win over Haggerston. Having already lifted the trophy, they remained unbeaten for the rest of the season. Their final game saw the team celebrate in a clinical fashion that had become typical of the season, scoring five goals without conceding, against Burlington Danes School on 18 March.

Since September, the team have managed to score 80 goals throughout the campaign of 13 games. Thanks to superb goalkeeping from Marwan, the team only conceded 10 goals through the season. They closed the season six successive clean sheets, alongside one match earlier in the season.

The top scorer was Marley who managed 21 goals, followed closely by Jordan whose tally was 19. The highest scoring matches of the season were two 13-0 victories over Skinners Academy and Bethnal Green Academy.

Business Mentoring

Undergraduates from Cass Business School with sixth form students

Cass Business School, the business school for the University of London, is ranked in the top 40 business schools in the world. As part of a new partnership scheme between that school and Central Foundation, they will be providing second year undergraduate students for weekly one-to-one mentoring sessions with vocational students in the sixth form.

The mentors will give weekly one-to-one support to students


The support, which has been organised by the Central Futures team, is intended to partner mentors with mentees to specific, task-focussed challenges in their course. The mentors will help the vocational students transition from working in the classroom to working into the world of work and higher education.
