Winter Concert 2021

January 3rd, 2022

On the evening before the final day of term, the Music School presented the Winter Concert. It showcased the hard work and commitment the pupils put in their music lessons and rehearsals. The different music ensembles were joined by the London Mozart Players Quartet in performing String Quartet No.3 by Chevalier de Saint Georges, Divertimento by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Spartacus by Brian Balmages, and Oath of Honour by Larry Clark.

Alongside performances from the drum group and Year 7, 8 & 9 guitar group, the Jazz Band performed N.T. by Kool and the Gang, while The Man Who Sold the World by David Bowie and Gimme Some Lovin’ by Spencer Davis Group were covered by the School’s Year 11 and Year 10 bands respectively.

To conclude the evening which showcased incredibly varied and high-quality music, the choir closed the concert by singing I Found by Amber Run and Beggin’ by Madcon.

The University of East London will be running a webinar that would be helpful for all of our Year 10 and 11 parents/carers and students who are considering their next steps after GCSEs. The session will look at the main qualifications and differences in these qualifications that one can move on to after GCESs. The event will also look at post-18 qualifications and how pre-18 choices can affect post-18 choices. We would encourage all of our parent/carers to join this webinar, with their student present.

Our Safer Schools Police Officer, PC Hughes, gave a powerful talk to our KS5 students this week on abuse and violence against women. This talk is part of our whole school approach to ensure our students are equipped with the knowledge to identify and report harassment, abuse or violence. PC Hughes discussed the pertinence of this topic and gave a detailed and evidence-informed presentation on the definitions and types of abuse against women.

On the final Friday of November the school held its annual Founder’s Day – an event to celebrate the school’s founder, Reverend William Rogers, and the achievements of its students.

During the ceremony, the Chamber Orchestra performed the 1st movement from Johann Stamitz’s Sinfonia with members of the London Mozart Players.

Awards were presented to pupils across the school to recognise their hard work and achievement throughout the year. Pupils were awarded prizes for both attainment and progress in each subject. The highest overall achiever in attainment and progress were awarded for each Year group.

The Bendy Scholarship is awarded to the top performing A Level students who go on to study engineering at university. The Dr Beck Scholarship for exceptional progress was awarded to students in the lower school, upper school and sixth form.

Additional special prizes awarded were The John Boston Scholarship for exceptional attainment and The Montcalm Scholarship for achievement in vocational learning.
