Winter Concert 2021

November 29th, 2021

We will be hosting a Winter Concert that will take place on Thursday 16th December at 6pm in the school Assembly Hall. As a result of the ongoing Covid-19 situation, we can accommodate only a limited number of visitors. Consequently, attendees are kindly asked to book a place through our online booking system: HERE . We ask this to ensure the comfort and safety of our visitors as well as members of our school community.

After placing an online booking, tickets must be picked up and paid for at the Reception (£2 / £1 Concession). We ask that all visitors wear a face covering for the duration of the visit, unless exempt.

Places for the Winter Concert need to be booked as bookings are limited to maximum of 2 members per family. We kindly ask that parents who have booked a place but are no longer able to attend let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer their place to another family.

We hope you can come along.

Monday 29th November will mark the start of our Year 12 CV Building Week. The purpose of this week is to provide our Year 12 students with the skills to build an impactful and effective CV, while also providing them with the knowledge and understanding in how to develop their CV as they advance in their experiences and career.

The week will entail:

  • a series of activities in form time learning about how to create a CV
  • an assembly delivered by Varde with tips and advice on how to make a CV stand out
  • an afterschool workshop on Wednesday 1st December delivered by Exigere where students can receive 1-to-1 advice from a professional about how to further develop their CV as a student/soon-to-be school leaver
  • final submission of their CV on SMHW

To participate in the afterschool workshop with Exigere, students must sign up for a time slot. Students can do this with Ms Neumann in the LRC. The session will run from 3:20pm and 5pm, and each time slot will be 10-minutes.

Please contact Ms Browne for any questions or further information:

Tower of London Visit

November 19th, 2021

On 18th November 2021, 27 students in Years 7 and 8 visited the Tower of London. They were chosen by the History department for their engagement and enthusiasm in their History lessons since the beginning of the academic year.

Students walked from the school to the Tower, taking in some of the historic sights of the City of London as well as walking along the River Thames. On arrival, students first saw the Crown Jewels before taking a well-deserved lunch break. Students then visited the White Tower and the tower’s battlements.

They also had the chance to get to know some of the Tower’s most important residents.

Throughout the day students were engaged and asking questions, curious about the people, places, and objects they saw. The visit gave the students a thorough understanding of medieval life and a better context for their history lessons.


Please see attached the Year 10 AP1 timetable starting next Monday 22nd November.
The assessments take place in classrooms during the lessons in the timetable.

Remembrance Day Assembly

November 15th, 2021

Central Foundation marked the 103rd anniversary of Armistice Day with a virtual Remembrance Day assembly for the whole school on Thursday 11th November.

After the Headteacher’s address, students read poems and a strings group performed Herschel Symphony. The Last Post was played by Ennio, Year 7, and Jaden, Year 8, after which the school community observed the two minutes’ silence. Two wreaths were laid at the school’s War Memorial, which displays the names of all former pupils who lost their lives in the First and Second World War.

The ceremony finished with a reading of an inscription from the Kohima Memorial:

‘When You Go Home, Tell Them Of Us And Say,
For Their Tomorrow, We Gave Our Today”.


On Thursday and Friday last week, all Year 11 GCSE geography classes visited the Field Study Council Centre in Epping Forest to carry out their River Field Investigation which makes up part of their GCSE.

While there, students examined how Loughton Brook, a small river that runs through Epping Forest towards Loughton before ending up in the River Roding, changes as it moves downstream. Working in small groups, the students collected primary data that allowed them to investigate how river characteristics change downstream.

As well as the River Investigation, students also looked at the characteristics and management of the ancient deciduous woodland ecosystem.

After returning, they will be analysing the data back in the classroom. The group was lucky to experience good weather on both days with the sun even coming out on Friday.
