The CAP Awards are only presented to organisations who meet the highest standards in housekeeping in the catering and hospitality industry. The College underwent an unannounced assessment of the Catering Department on 28th June which lasted from 9.00am until after the boarders’ supper service in the evening.  Catering Manager, Gary Law and his team were delighted to score 94.3% having shown continued enhancement of the food offering in terms of choice, healthy options and overall meal experience together with a determination to beat their last assessment score. Feedback from pupils was also very positive across the age ranges (from 4 – 18).

Since embarking on the CAP programme in 2012 the College Catering Department has continued to deliver increasingly high standards year on year. Gary and his team will now strive to achieve the new Platinum Award which is only available to establishments who have achieved a minimum of 5 consecutive Gold CAP Awards.

The College will be holding an Open Morning on Saturday 23rd September from 9.00am, which will include an opportunity to visit the catering facilities, for anyone interested in gaining a comprehensive introduction to life at Bishop’s Stortford College.

at A*/C.

Bishop’s Stortford College is celebrating for a second week running with a stunning set of GCSE results, 70% of which were at A*/A  and 99.4% at A*/C.  In the new Maths GCSE, 94% of pupils gained at least 5 or higher and 8% achieved the top grade 9 (well above the national average of 3.5%).

Nearly one third of the 114 strong year group gained the magic ‘Ten Club Tie’ for pupils achieving A*/A in ten or more subjects. In both Drama and Music, all pupils gained A*/A and in both English Language IGCSE and Religious Studies GCSE, 89% of all grades were either A*/A, results which the College Headmaster, Jeremy Gladwin called, “Simply outstanding”.

Seven pupils gained 10 A* grades: Wendy Cowen, Luke Eddershaw, Shreeya Khetani, Nena Nurbhai, Grace Reed and Ella Stephens.

The Headmaster went on to say he was, “Utterly delighted with this superb set of results.  GCSE has got harder, with greater content and more challenging exam papers.  It is increasingly difficult to access the top grades, but our pupils have demonstrated that, with hard work and focus, together with the assistance of a really dedicated teaching staff, it is possible to surpass expectations and still achieve top qualifications at 16+.”

The College looks forward to welcoming around 35 new students to join this talented year group in the Sixth Form in September.

The College will be holding a Sixth Form Open Morning for those wishing to commence their A Level studies in 2018 on Saturday 14th October at 10:15am.

Her teachers laid the firm foundations for future success, which has been realised in spectacular fashion with this accolade from Oxford. All at the College salute her achievement.”

The College, which is currently asking “Do you want your child to reach their true potential?” in their advertising campaign will be holding an Open Morning on Saturday 23rd September from 9.30am – 1.00pm. There is no need to book, everyone is welcome: there will be opportunities to meet staff, pupils and parents as well as have a guided tour of the campus and soak up the unique atmosphere of the College community.

on record.

In spite of the warnings about the potentially negative impact on results of the new A Level courses, 2017 has been a vintage year for Bishop’s Stortford College, with pupils achieving a 100% pass rate and one of the best set of results on record.

Almost a quarter of all results were A*.  37% of pupils achieved at least 3 or more grades A/A* and, in the now firmly established Extended Project Qualifications (EPQ), 81% of results were at A/A*.  The EPQ is studied by many pupils alongside either 3 or 4 A Level subjects.

College Headmaster, Jeremy Gladwin was “absolutely delighted with the performance or our students, who have once again demonstrated the superb value-added that the College provides.  This is the result of excellent preparation and a wonderful work ethic amongst the student body – all the more impressive given the busy extra-curricular life the school offers.  I am indebted to my staff, who have, once again, provided the highest quality of teaching, as well as going the extra mile in providing one-to-one support for individual students.”

Head Boy, Sam Hopkinson who achieved 3 A* (along with 8 other pupils) commented, “I am delighted, it was a really nice surprise – I surpassed my expectations.”

William Watson who was the College’s top performer with 4 A* said he was “Relieved, happy and glad it’s all over.” He will be going to Durham to study Physics in the autumn.

William’s twin sister Katherine will be paddling a different course as she heads to Nottingham with A*AA. Katherine is the youngest of 6 young women to gain a full-time Lottery funded place on the Girls for Gold programme, where she will be training in Sprint Canoe with a view to the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.

Ruman Basra commented “I put in so much work, but at the end of the day it was worth it. I’m really looking forward to studying Medicine.” Ruman will be taking up her place at King’s College London.

Head of Girls’ Hockey Nick Prowse commented, “It was an inspiring experience for all involved and the pupils were full of admiration for Kate and the sacrifices she made to reach gold.”  One Fourth Form pupil commented, “Kate’s speech was inspiring, not just to hockey players but everyone who has an interest in in succeeding in what they want to pursue. She made everyone feel like they could achieve anything.”

Kate also led a training session for the top hockey players in Years 7 to 10 which focussed on ball carrying skills and decision making under pressure. The pupils enjoyed this intensive training, with one of the scholars commenting, “The session was truly inspiring – she not only helped us out of our shells, but really explored improvisation and communication with our teammates. It was amazing to be coached by such a high level international player.”

Bishop’s Stortford College Sixth Formers recently attended the Stonewall Young Campaigners Award ceremony, hosted by the Lloyds Banking Group at The Lloyds Building in London.  The students, representing the Rainbow Project, were presented with a School Award by Stonewall in recognition of their work to reduce homophobia, biphobia and transphobia over the last year.

Sixth Former Didi described how inspiring he found the interviews with the panel of guests at the event.  “Their stories not only left us in awe, but enlightened us particularly on the personal issues that are involved in coming out.  The sharing of their journeys made us reflect on how we can keep improving the Rainbow Project, so that we can support each other and continue to promote inclusion, diversity and acceptance within the College community.”

After receiving their award, the students encouraged their College peers to get involved with the Rainbow Project, saying that it has “provided us with experiences that will stay with us for life, and we hope that the club will continue to go from strength to strength.”

Maddie, Team GB’s goalkeeper when they won gold in the Olympics in Rio last year, gave an inspirational talk to Prep School pupils during their morning assembly, followed by coaching sessions with both Prep and Senior School goalkeepers.

Maddie’s talk to the Prep School focussed on her journey to the Olympics; how she became a goalkeeper and went on to play international hockey before winning Gold at the Rio Olympiad. She spoke about the sacrifices she has made through her career, as well as the setbacks she has suffered and the resilience and determination she has had to find. Maddie went on to answer questions from the audience. Prep School pupil Lottie who was inspired by the talk said, “I admire her because she is very outgoing… What I could take from it is I will never give up. I’ll try and find a sport that fits the way I learn and I’m definitely trying out hockey goalkeeping next term!”

Following her talk, Maddie spent time coaching some of the College’s Prep and Senior School goalkeepers, putting them through their paces and working on accurate clearances as well as rebounding. First Team Goalkeeper, Lizzy Tupman, was fortunate to have one on one coaching.

This is the third time that College pupils have benefitted from Maddie’s coaching skills, although this was her first time as an Olympic champion. Nick Prowse, Head of Girls’ Hockey, commented, “It was a truly memorable morning for all involved.”

The College would like to express their thanks to Maddie and wishes her well in her bid to retain Olympic gold in Tokyo 2020.

XI continued their unbeaten start to the season, triumphing over Chigwell School by 59 runs.  Captain and Essex cricketer, 13 year old William C-S, made a large contribution to this win as he made his very first century, finishing with an unbeaten 109 not out from a total of 154 for 3.  His hundred came from 66 deliveries and included 16 boundaries.  William is already part of the school’s Elite Cricketing Programme.

Head of Prep School Cricket, Mr Sandy Barnard said, “Hitting a century is a very rare achievement in Prep School cricket; we’re all very proud of William and how he is developing as a player.”

Another player of note during the Chigwell block fixture was 12 year old Vibha M. who, as part of the 2nd XI, played in a truly great game of cricket. Although the College ended on the losing side, they could definitely claim the best individual performance; Vibha, in only her second appearance for the Prep School 2nd XI, bowled 4 overs of leg spin, including 1 maiden over, 4 wickets and she only conceded 8 runs. This remarkable spell of bowling included a hat-trick (2 bowled & 1 stumped), an impressive feat at any level of the game, that completely disrupted the Chigwell innings.

The College looks forward to welcoming England and Bishop’s Stortford CC player, Charlotte Edwards on 19th May when she will be sharing her skills and knowledge with Prep School cricketers.

Bishop’s Stortford College recently hosted, for the 2nd year running, a Rounders Festival featuring England Rounders teams and other invited schools. The Festival is an opportunity for players to test their skills against the young players who represent England in their age group.

Two Under 14 teams and an Under 17 team from the College played the England Under 14 and Under 16 squads. Head of Rounders, Kay Adkins praised the “excellent performance” by all College players.

The first U14 team won their match against the U14 Development squad and drew against the U14 Elite. They also played two matches against the England U16 squads, one of which they lost by only one rounder. The second U14 team showed some very good fielding in their matches against both England Rounders and the U14 team from Sevenoaks school and the College’s U17 team played in four very close games, winning against one of the England U16 teams. Mrs Adkins commented, “their fielding and batting were consistent and the team worked well together, always encouraging one another. Our highlight was getting out the England Elite number one player on her first bat.”

The England Rounders teams presented a Most Valuable Player award to one member of each team; Katie Whitehead from the first U14 team received an award for Outstanding Fielding and Yuki Cheng won Most Valuable Player for the second U14 team. Imogen Poulter, representing the U17s, was recognised as the Most Valuable Player for her performances.

This was a fantastic experience for all involved and one that was thoroughly enjoyed by all the College girls.

as a place on the National Youth Theatre’s Senior Course this summer.

Bishop’s Stortford College Sixth Former Poppy Brooks has secured an unconditional place at the prestigious London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). Poppy, who will finish her A levels at the College this Summer, is set to start her BA in Acting at LAMDA in September.

Auditioning for drama schools such as LAMDA is a highly competitive and rigorous process and it is rare for anyone to be accepted onto an undergraduate course immediately following their A levels.  Poppy said of her achievement, “I was aware of how competitive these courses are and that sometimes people audition for three or four years before gaining a place at one, so I went into the audition process with a realistic mindset – that I may get a few recalls, but it will be more than likely I will be trying again next year.” However, after two auditions followed by a final recall, which consisted of a panel audition, interview and group workshop, Poppy was offered her place on the BA course. Poppy continued, “I’m so happy and still can’t really believe it… I am so lucky to have had so much support from the Drama Department, as well as my family and friends.”

Poppy has performed in a number of productions at the College, including ‘Cabaret’, ‘Macbeth’ and most recently ‘The Threepenny Opera’, and is currently studying towards her A level in Drama. Poppy will be following in the footsteps of many notable LAMDA alumni, including actors Benedict Cumberbatch, Richard Armitage and Patricia Hodge.

Only days after receiving her offer from LAMDA, Poppy also received news that she had secured a place on the National Youth Theatre’s Senior Course. On completion of this course, which takes place during the summer, Poppy will become part of the National Youth Theatre Company and can then audition for their future productions.

The College wishes Poppy every success with her continued studies and looks forward to seeing her on the stages of the West End and beyond in the future.
