Prayer Events Secondary Transfer information
Update on applications for secondary school places...
arrowsee more

...Secondary National Offer Day is on Monday 2nd March 2015

If a parent/carer applied online they will receive a text message and/or email on the evening of Monday 2/3/15 to say that the result of the application is available.

They then need to log in using their pre-given username and password to the London Grid for Learning portal via our website,, then click on the secondary transfer 2015/16 link.

Parent/carers are advised to accept the offer made – as all children have been offered a place, either from their Common Application Form (CAF) or an allocated (forced offer when no offer could be made from their CAF). They should do this online (or using the posted reply form if applied by paper form) by 16 March or risk losing this offer. By accepting the offer this does not prevent other possible offers being made for preferences listed as ‘pending’ (not offered) after 2/3/15.
However, if a parent/carer has already got another school place e.g. private school or is adamant that they do not want to accept the offer, they can reject the offer online (or on the reply form) and must state the reason why the offer has been rejected – including any offered school name. NB. Once an offer has been rejected it cannot be re-offered, instead a new application would be needed.

Whether the application was made on a paper or an online form, everyone will be sent an outcome letter on 2/3/15 – the day it physically leaves our office first class post. Please see below copies of the Q&A sheets to help parents on what to do after receiving an offer.

Prayer Events Saturday School for Years 4, 5 and 6 with SHINE
SHINE @ the BLC project...
arrowsee more

...For most young people the prospect of waking up early to attend school on a Saturday morning would be their worst nightmare. However, this is not true for the group of 60 young people, in years 4-6, from our cluster primary schools who are choosing to do this, for 10 Saturdays each term, as part of the SHINE @ the BLC project.

SHINE @ BLC is provided by the schools in the Brixton Learning Collaborative Cluster, the SHINE charity and The Walcott Foundation. The project is designed to support children in improving their literacy, numeracy and knowledge of the world in a creative way, while providing children with learning opportunities that are not always available at school.

At SHINE children learn in different ways, we are not a Saturday school, as a matter of fact our aim is to be very different from school! We put fun and engagement at the heart of learning and enhance learning by giving students different experiences which include visits to places in and outside of London. Children are selected by their school to attend the project and pupils are expected attend every week.

This project has been running for 4 years and it is primary aim is to improve the education outcomes for targeted students who attend the BLC primary schools. The project’s sponsors sponsor many similar projects across London and in the North of the country.

The children who are selected to attend the project benefit from learning about many different topics these include: Enchanted forests; Shakespeare and Elizabethan London; Worlds of Imagination; Fashion and more recently Dungeons and Dragons. The children have visited places such as Warwick Castle, The Globe theatre, Thorpe Park and  Stubbers  Adventure Centre, where they were taught archery and took part in a high rope challenge.

Tarrick Bartley, a SHINE student, had this to say about his time at SHINE.

“Activities at SHINE are messy and fun, we always have exciting stuff to do. I like it when we go out and when the teacher’s make us laugh. It’s not like school.”

Should you have any questions or need any further information about the project, please feel free to contact Lisa Bogle, Project Manager, on 07854350932
