Lovely letters!

We are very proud of the letter we received this week from Schools Ministers Damian Hinds and Nick Gibb.  They wrote to congratulate the Bevington community on its outstanding achievement this past year.  Our results place us in the top 3% in the country.  Thank you to everyone for making this happen, we think you’re […]

O2 Superstars

Well done to our School of Pop who took part in a once in a lifetime opportunity, singing with 8,800 other children at the incredible O2 Arena.  The concert was incredible, and the parents who attended said it a memorable evening.  Thanks to Miss Faiers for organising.

Blowing away the cobwebs

Thanks to our friend Fergus who brought his bagpipes to school this morning and gave everyone a rousing start to the day!  Parents and children felt like they were on the Royal Mile on their way into school.  Apologies to our neighbours for your 8:45am alarm, but hopefully you enjoyed it nonetheless!

Hitting for Six

Year 3 and 4 have dusted down their whites, warmed up their follow through and checked the difference between LBW and MCC, all in preparation for this term’s specialist Cricket training provided by Middlesex Cricket Club.  There were no ducks in the first sessions run this week, and we are looking forward to a good […]

Learning from friends

A big thank you to staff from St Saviour’s school near Warwick Avenue, who have visited Bevington over the past two weeks.  They came to see how we carry out feedback and marking in our classrooms.  It’s always a compliment to have school visit Bevington, and this was no exception.  It was a great learning […]

Closing ceremony

A scorching day at the Linford Christie Stadium today drew our week of sports to a close, with our final Sports Day.  Today was the turn of KS2 who impressed parents and families alike with their sporting prowess, from the javelin throw to the long jump.  We felt like real athletes competing on a real-life […]

A taste of honey

The hall was full of buzzing honey bees this morning, as Willow took to the stage to give us a taste of their upcoming production, The Bee Musical.  They impressed the audience with their knowledge of queens, workers and drones, and they raised the roof with their final song.  Thanks to all family members who […]
