On Friday 5th October Year 12 and 13IB geography students went to Stratford to collect data for their internal assessment.
They visited the Olympic Park, London Stadium and Westfield shopping centre in order to collect data on environmental quality, sphere of influence and traffic counts, amongst other things.
Whilst there, they completed the London Stadium tour; the stadium is now home to West Ham FC. Even though the students do not support West Ham they enjoyed the tour and even tried their skills on the indoor warm up track. The winners took their rightful place on the podium and posed with Olympic medals. They all enjoyed the day.

New Adventures for Sixth Form
Written by V Willis
This week is Freshers’ week at universities across the UK. King Ethelbert would like to wish all our students who graduated from the IBCP this summer well in their new endeavours.
This year students are leaving us to study at Southampton University, Portsmouth University, University of Kent, Bath Spa University, Canterbury Christchurch University, London South Bank University, Roehampton University, Greenwich University, Middlesex University, Edge Hill University and Ravensbourne University to name but a few.
We are very proud of two of our students who have achieved their Level one in BSL (British Sign Language).
Lilly Parrot, Yr 8 and Baileigh Bellem, Year 7, attended lessons with Hearing Hands last year in their own time. They have passed the 3 exams and now have their certificates for Level 1 British Sign Language.
This is a tremendous achievement as the qualification is the equivalent to a GCSE and the exam is actually aimed at adults.
