Yesterday Reverend Kevin Bell spoke at our latest Academic Enrichment talk. He discussed his life and the challenges he has faced throughout, from his job as a police officer in the 70s and 80s to his career as a military chaplain. He brought in his police hat and chaplain's cap, as well as his own and his fatherโ€™s medals to show the pupils.
๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽต
This was followed by a reading from his book of poems, published in support of the War Widows Society, and he sang two of his own songs. A thoughtful and enjoyable talk, thank you very much to Rev Kevin for taking the time to speak to us.

Last Friday's Christmas Mini-Mart was hugely popular with our pupils - there were lots of presents for family members bought, as well as chocolate for themselves!
๐ŸŽ„โ„๏ธ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ…
Thank you to all who donated gifts and raffle prizes, and to all the parents who gave up their time to help out. It was great to see pupils who are taking part in the Charity Enterprise Challenge running their own stalls! This is a great charity fundraiser which the whole school loves getting involved with!

Our pupils studying A Level English Literature took part in a study day at The Globe as part of their revision of one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies, โ€˜Othelloโ€™.

A tour of the theatre was followed by a lecture on different directorial decisions made in recent productions of the play, which provided a host of valuable insights. The pupils finished the day with a workshop from a Shakespearean actor on the importance of language in Iago and Othello's soliloquies.

PC Farry from the Metropolitan Police visited us yesterday and shared valuable knowledge to the pupils of Year 10 on Online Safety, Bullying, Drugs and County Lines.

He also addressed 'Violence against women & girls' (VAWG) in the lead up to White Ribbon Day this Saturday. You can collect your white ribbon from Reception to help raise awareness and challenge the attitudes and behaviours that perpetuate violence for women and girls.

PC Farry's talk was very informative and left our Year 10s with lots to think about going forward.

Last Wednesday, the sun shone brightly for the annual Year 8 trip to Stonehenge and Bath. This extraordinary monument always impresses, generating many questions about how it could have been created so long ago.

After a picnic lunch, the trip moved on to Bath, where the Roman Baths were explored with great enthusiasm. A highlight for the children was talking to one of the character guides, a Roman mason, who made an excellent job of bringing the Roman world to life. They came away full of inspiration for their Roman Baths project!

GCSE Performing Arts pupils visited the Emerald City yesterday evening to see the award winning musical, Wicked! This was a wonderful opportunity to see the GCSE Music set work song 'Defying Gravity' in context.

The scale of the production really has to be seen to be believed and pupils were wowed by the performances, magical set, costumes and vocals. A spectacular treat for the end to the week!

This week our pupils went on their first Sociology trip to the Emmanuel Centre for a 'Sociology in Action' Study Day. The speakers included the likes of Ann Oakley, Simon Harding and Professor Jason Arday.

Topics surrounded gender inequality, racism and spiking crime rates in London and allowed the opportunity for pupils to see the disparities in the world around them and ask questions to all of the key speakers.

Last Friday, our Year 7 pupils embarked on a gothic-themed adventure to Strawberry Hill House, enhancing their understanding of 'The Woman in Black' for their English lessons and delving into local history.

Horace Walpole, writer and politician, designed the building with pinnacles, turrets and towers in the 17th century, and wrote the first gothic novel 'The Castle of Otranto', following a nightmare he had inside its walls.

During the trip, the pupils experienced four different activity workshops; from drama freeze frames, to dressing up and acting, exploring gothic literature in contemporary media, and a spine-chilling tour of the house. ๐Ÿฐ ๐Ÿ“

Some of our Year 7 pupils were visited this morning by local historical children's author, Catherine Randall, and received an insight into her research and writing process.๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“

Catherine's book 'The White Phoenix' was set during the Great Fire of London and she is now writing her second book which takes place in Victorian London. The class spent the last half term reading a choice of historical fiction books and writing reviews so thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to talk to an author.

To start Anti-Bullying Week, we have taken part in Odd Socks Day! Pupils and staff came in wearing odd socks to raise awareness about bullying. Itโ€™s an opportunity to encourage people to celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique! Odd Socks Day is all about raising awareness and empowering pupils to stand up against bullying and discrimination.

In the lead up to Remembrance Sunday, Radnor House has been commemorating those impacted by war throughout history and in modern times.

Mr Wideman led a series of assemblies honoring those who have given their lives throughout history and the present in times of war. He encouraged pupils to think deeply about their own actions and how best they can support those impacted by the Israel/Palestine conflict, before the pupils stood for a two minute silence.

Our Head Boy and Girl, along with Mr Wideman, laid a wreath at the war memorial in Radnor Gardens to pay their respects on behalf of the school community.

Munira Wilson, Liberal Democrat MP for Twickenham, gave a talk to a packed room of pupils and staff as the latest installment of our Academic Enrichment Programme. We heard about daily life in the Commons, her career path as well as a Q&A session. We are sure that Munira's talk will inspire a lively debate between our pupils during UK Parliament Week!

Last week some of our A Level pupils were lucky enough to attend a talk by celebrated photographer Rankin. This was a brilliant opportunity for them to learn more about his work and this experience will be a great source of inspiration for their own A Level studies!

Our A Level pupils are currently studying Sam Selvonโ€™s โ€˜The Lonely Londonersโ€™- a novel about the struggles of The Windrush Generation and their arrival in London in the 1950s London. Pupils took two workshops, one celebrating the resilience of black immigrants to the UK, focusing on oral history and the importance of recording voices as part of history. The second was with the writer Sandra Agard and focused on exploring the history of Black British literature and how this has exploded in the past decade.

Our Year 11 Geographers went travelling to the Surrey Hills this week to complete their GCSE Geography Fieldwork. This trip is a requirement of the course but is always an excellent opportunity for the students to see the value of the theory they learn as they apply it in the field and complete an inquiry on a pressing Geographical issue. With the spate of flooding in the UK over the last few years we focused on flood prevention; investigating and collecting data on the River Tillingbourne. The trip was a huge success and students got to put on their waterproofs and literally wade into the issue. We worked hard and collected excellent data to bring back to the classroom and make our lessons all the more meaningful. - Mr Cusack

They have been voting for their favorites to be performed at the Celebration Assembly later this week. It was clear how hard the pupils had worked on their poems, and some were very powerful. Watch this space as the winning poems will be shared later this week!
