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.

Headteacher’s Update

We are reviewing our relationship and sex education (RSE) curriculum and policy, so we can be sure that our RSE provision is appropriate for our pupils.

We would like to give all parents and carers the opportunity to provide input and feedback into our RSE policy and curriculum.  We are, therefore, running a focus group event in our Assembly Hall on Tuesday 9th November at for one hour.  If you would like to participate in the event please e-mail us at, or call the office on 02072533741.

If you are unable to attend this event, but would like a discussion on this topic, please contact the school through the routes above.
