HOPE news

Many thanks to Shaun and Charlotte for all their hard work over the past nine months with the board of HOPE. At last week's General Assembly they stepped down from the interim post of Secretary of HOPE. And congratulations to Martin who was voted on as a new board member.

Holiday Programme

olivias painting thumb
The  Easter holidays are here and we will be running a Holiday Programme across some of our school sites. Our fabulous team of teaching assistants, artists, and musicians will provide fun activities in our schoolrooms. The holiday programme is funded by our charity FCCHS. Our teaching team will be back on Tuesday, April 19th. Wishing you all a relaxing break.

After the Storm

As we begin to lift restrictions it is important for every school to reflect on what they are doing to put positive relationships at the centre of their work. If we’ve learned anything in these last two years it has to be that we are stronger when we work together. Read more on the latest Well at School blog post.

Music with City of London Sinfonia

cls 3
Students at Lavender Walk began an exciting project with musicians from the City of London Sinfonia. They worked with Gawain to create compositions using field recordings of a marsh in Suffolk along with Matt on viola and playing instruments in the classroom. We took inspiration from the book Diary of a Naturalist by Dara McAnulty, the memoir of an autistic teenage boy and his passion for nature.

Congratulations Shaun

We are delighted that Shaun, our artist in residence, has taken up the position of Secretary of HOPE. Shaun will be assisted by Charlotte. We also send a huge thank you to Kim, who has previously worked so hard in the role of HOPE Secretary.

Thank you!


Together we raised £1470 to help support Cissy train to be a teacher in Uganda. Thank you to everyone who made this possible through their generosity. This is the most wonderful success for Cissy, we are all so very delighted for her, another story of how despite facing difficult medical problems it is still possible to achieve your life goals.

We had a fantastic World Book Day today. Ava chose to dress up as Alice in Wonderland, Deirdre was the Cat from 'Room on the Broom' and Charlotte was from 'A Day at the Beach'! The highlight of the day was when was Robin joined our session dressed as Super Burrito! A great day filled with stories, poems and laughter. Happy World Book Day 2021!

The sun is shining, showing up my rain and mud-streaked windows - surely there has been time for a spring clean? Thank goodness the relentless rain causing parks to be sodden has lifted.  Even my dog, Dolores, began to run and hide when the lead came to take her for yet another freezing cold walk - yes, we have warmth, light and some freedom to look forward to.

Music with MiSST

We are really excited to be starting a music project with the team at MiSST (The Music in Secondary Schools Trust). Here's Learning Mentor Lala, with one of our students - all ready to learn to play their new violins!

The joys of cycling!

Our English teacher got a puncture cycling in to work this morning. Luckily it was near to where our Music teacher was working from home - puncture fixed! Now watch out for that ice!
