Horniman Museum Trip
English National Ballet Dance workshop
On the 17th October 2014 the A Level dance group had the opportunity to participate in a workshop with the English National Ballet.
The warm up was in the style of ballet, it was relaxed but very technical, I found that the dance instructor was really supportive when we didn't understand which made us to feel comfortable. We then went on to work on a creative piece which focused on different body parts, how they move and how we can also use them when we dance.

Madrid Exchange Trip 22nd Oct-28th Oct
Students in Years 9,10 and 11 from Sydenham and Forest Hill School took part in an exchange visit to Colegio Lourdes in Madrid. Their Spanish exchange partners had already visited the UK in May and thoroughly enjoyed the welcome they received from both schools.
Account from Effie Tierney 11N
In the half-term holiday I had an amazing experience of staying in Madrid with my Spanish exchange partner Marta. Each day we visited a new place including the Santiago Bernabéu football stadium, home of the Real Madrid football team, Palacio Real (the Royal Palace), Reina Sofia museum, Retiro park and Madrid theme park. We took part in a 2 hour walking guided tour of Madrid where we learnt about it's history. I was chosen many times to act out scenes as a Queen! We even watched a film in Spanish at the cinema (with no subtitles) and tried churros con chocolate (famous Spanish donuts with chocolate). As part of the exchange we also had to attend lessons in Colegio Lourdes. It was very different to our school, they still have chalkboards in many classrooms! The weather was great, the food even better and the people were some of the most welcoming and kind-hearted that I have ever met!
The ‘Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe’ will be the first major production to be staged in the new school.
