London Central Mosque

We recently took 15 Year 10 and 18 Year 9 students to the London Central Mosque at Regent's Park. We arrived in London early and so were given a tour of the sites by our very helpful driver. We had lunch in the park and then went to the Mosque. 

The building was beautiful with a gold dome roof and inside…

Year 9 Trip to Norwich Mosque

On the 19th of March a group of year 9's visited a Mosque in Norwich.  It was everyone's first visit to a Mosque, (including Mrs Hurren and Mrs Baldwin).  We found out that the Norwich Mosque is the oldest one in the UK.  

We met a Muslim who talked to us about his religion and afterwards, we all asked lots of questions about his beliefs for example questions about homosexuality, terrorism, equality for women, and praying.  We then met some women who were visiting here from Morocco…

RE Ambassadors trip to Worlingworth

On the 18th of March Naomi Lewis, Shannon Smith, Atlanta Wilkinson and Amelia Catling went to Worlingworth Primary school to give them a taste of our RE lessons. We have been chosen to be RE ambassadors because we're enthusiastic about the subject.

Part of being an ambassador is preparing a lesson to teach the primary school children, so we decided to do ours on forgiveness. We spent a lunchtime each week preparing for it and planning ways to make it fun. What we did in the lesson was…

Central London Gurdwara Trip

Year 8 Cultural Trip to the Central London Sikh Gurdwara


Monday 10 March 2014

 “On Monday the whole of Year 8 went on a trip to London to see a real Gurdwara!  The bus journey was quite long (and loud!) but it was very much worth it once we got there.  The building itself wasn’t actually as big as I thought it would be but it was still a great experience.  Once inside we had to respect their religion by washing our hands, taking off our…

Visit from Manji Singh

We were lucky enough to have a visitor from India, Miss Singh who was visiting Stradbroke for the day.  She came into one of our lessons and answered questions from the whole class about her religion (Hinduism), her culture and the school where she teaches.  This was a great opportunity for our students to engage with someone from such a different background to themselves and hear how different life is in India.…

Visit by Dr Dan Poulter

Dr Poulter visited us on Friday 26th April to talk to a group of Year 9 and 10 students.  He answered a variety of questions relating to medical ethics.  Our students were excellent and many asked questions including Dr Poulter's opinion on the abortion limit, whether assisted suicide should be legal and what he thought about cloning and genetic engineering including stem cell research.  All of these questions are very relevant to our GCSE course and we are grateful to Dr Poulter for taking…

Sikh Visitor

Sikh Visitor to Year 7 by Alex Pierce-Saunderson


On the 14th of February 2013, Bhupindar Singh Sually came to talk to the Year Sevens about being a Sikh.  He was an interesting man and had lots to talk about.  Sometimes he even changed the subject when he was talking, answering a completely different question.

He said that it is better to be a good human being than a good Christian, Muslim, Buddhist or Sikh. Being a good human is important.  Although…
