• Well done to the School Band!

    Well done to the School Band who performed amazingly again to rapturous applause at the Lambeth Music Festival!

    Thank you to Mr Townsend and Jose for taking them to the event.


    Following on from the success of the Model United Nations conference, the Norwood School have won this year’s Lambeth Schools Debating competition which took place on Saturday at Lambeth Town Hall.

    They were up against Elm Green, Dunraven, Archbishop Tennison, La Retraite, St. Martins in the Field, Lambeth Academy, City Heights (with a younger team), Lilian Baylis and London Nautical.

    Please congratulate Victoria (speaker), Joseph (questioner) and Sofia (chair) – it was a team effort. Victoria also won Best Speaker. It’s not an easy competition to win and they were up against some fierce competition but they are very sharp, capable, calm and confident young people. They were arguing why the voting age should be lowered to 16 years old and the argument was very compelling.

    They have won £200 for the school and wil receive work experience (which in the past has been at a law firm).

  • Year 10 Historians out and about at the Norwood School

    On Wednesday a group of hard working Year 10 Historians were chosen to visit Sussex University for a study day on World War 1. The day was run by two of the lecturers from the faculty with the support of a group of History undergraduates. Our students worked using archive material focused on the impact of war on the Brighton area. At the end of the day they produced a poster display and gave a presentation. Different groups considered the impact of war on everyday life; the different ways that soldiers from the Empire were treated; the cost of war, particularly on conscientious objectors and the way that prisoners of war from the Brighton area were treated. Ms Richardson was incredibly proud of the mature way they worked with the students and with the quality of work they produced. It was a pleasure to spend the day with them.

    As part of Yr 10 Immersion - Mr Jones and Ms Richardson’s History classes went to visit the Imperial War Museum, an opportunity for them to visit the Holocaust Exhibition. The day started with an introductory talk; the students impressed their teachers by demonstrating their knowledge of the period and participating in the workshop. They were then given headphones and had a commentary to listen to as they looked around the exhibition. It was an excellent way to get the most out of the huge array of information and artefacts that were part of the exhibition. The staff that went were particularly proud of the way that the group reacted to the sensitive and harrowing information on display.

    It is worth noting that entry to the Imperial War Museum is free and this would be a great trip for families at any time who wanted to help their children to get a better understanding of the 20th century. The Museum is on Lambeth Road, SE1 6HZ.

    Thank you to all the staff who organised the trips and visits.

  • Chess in the Library

    Look what's happening in the library!

    If any of you would like to witness Mr Dylan being thrashed yet again by the likes of Corey Elliot, or would like to get involved by ‘vs’ some of our students, head to the library at lunchtimes or after school!

    Alternatively, if you would like to learn how to play this ancient art form, our students are excellent coaches!
