The fifth annual YLA awards will take place at Sydenham School on Friday 1st February 2013, from 7pm till 8.30pm in the main school hall. The prize aims to offer A-level art students the opportunity to participate in an exhibition, and to learn skills of setting up and displaying their work which are invaluable for their future careers in the creative industries. Local support for this event is crucial for its continued success and all visitors are welcome. Here are the photos of some of A-level students with their work:


We were delighted that so many parents attended the second Parent Forum meeting on December 11th and are delighted that 30+ parents are regularly attending the Parent Forum sessions. Our third meeting this year will take place on Tuesday 12th February at 7pm. The focus of this meeting will be 'The School Rebuild'. The session will be led by Alison Senior (Project Manager) and Joanne Smith  (School Business Manager). If any parent/carer who has not attended previous Parent Forum meetings would like to attend, please click here to download the reply slip, complete it, and ask your daughter to hand it in to the school reception.


Thanks to those parents of lower school girls who have completed the questions via Ms Emmanuel’s blog. We are keen to hear from as many parents and carers as possible about how we are doing as a School. To this end we have put together an online survey for all parents which takes around 10 minutes to complete. Please complete it by following this link:

Many thanks, Mrs O’Connor


Sixteen Sydenham Girls have just read 'A Horse For Angel' by Sarah Lean, pre-publication, and have written reviews for the publishers. The publishers have put two quotes from Ashleigh Year 8 and Jess Year 7 onto the back cover of the book, which will be published internationally. Sarah Lean will be coming to Sydenham School in July when her next book 'Forever Whale' will be launched.
