June 2014: Our first Year 5 Big Bang Open Mornings

We hosted our first 'Big Bang' Year 5 Open Morning at SPWT in June 2014. More than 500 Year 5 students attended the event. The theme was science and music. We planned interesting activities that engaged and enhanced the learning experience of our Year 5 visitors.

For science we conducted wild explosions, students had the opportunity to play with magic wands and create their own lightning bolts. Our Animal Kingdom exhibition was on show. This included creepy crawlies and furry mammals. Our visitors had lots of fun in the music workshops. Families were given a tour of the school and they got the opportunity to visit different subject areas.

September 2014: Y6 Open Week

Year 6 students from 57 different Primary Schools visited St Paul's Way Trust School over the four days; this was our biggest Open Week with over a hundred visitors every day. Prospective families were shown around the school after an introduction from Iftikhar Ahmed 7JH, Mohima Hakim 7MA, Mufassir Rahman 7JH and Maiya King 7R and Executive Headteacher, Grahame Price. Our busiest day was Wednesday 24th September, we welcomed two hundred and fifty visitors and completely filled the Willoughby Theatre!

Thank you to the student presenters, for sharing their experience of settling into their new school and our enthusiastic Year 7 & Year 8 tour guides. The most frequently asked questions have been collected here (click to view or download) in a FAQ.pdf.

An Evening of Celebration

Youngsters and their families from 53 different primary schools also attended our Open Evening. An event full of music, fun and laughter and we were delighted that around five hundred visitors attended. Tasfia Rahman (Head Girl) and Tahmid Ahmed (Head Boy) led the presentations in the Willoughby Theatre.

Although our Open Week has now come to an end families still wishing to visit the school are very welcome to contact Alema Begum, tel: 020 7987 1883 ext. 110 or admin@spwt.net for an appointment.

SPWT Students Beattie Green and Myrtle Bolt win the
Thames Youth Art Competition 2014

Watch the award winning film "I Live Here"

Congratulations to Beatrice Green and Myrtle Bolt for winning the audience vote at THAMES Youth Art Competition for their film titled "I Live Here".

Congratulations also to Jahed Hussain for second runner up in the youth vote at THAMES Youth Art Competition for his photography series "Deliquesce"

Here is what Beattie and Myrtle said about their work:

This film is our interpretation of the theme 'I live here'.
We love stories; hearing and telling them in every way and we wanted to express how they can consume everything. How you can become so invested in them that you feel like you live there, with the characters. Our main character is an interesting one. She is monotone and boring; a decision made deliberately to create a contrast between her and the vivid stories she so loves. We also liked the comical aspects of such a strange and drifting character. Another more subtle but important aspect of the film was that it was all filmed where we live so that even though we took the theme more broadly you still get a sense of our location. We hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed making!

A Well-Earned Victory

Nayem Uddin 10L
Posing with the trophy, after his great performance


After two years of being awarded second place in the Tower Hamlets EBP Public Speaking Competition, this year we came first and scooped the Borough's public speaking 'Crown'. Nayem Uddin 10L was awarded first prize in the event having competed against 15 Borough secondary schools. In the grand final Nayem was up against eleven other speakers. His passionate and insightful speech on the theme of 'personal identity' brought huge applause from the audience and proved to be the judging panel's favourite. Lloyds of London hosted the competition at their prestigious offices in the City.

Nayem explained: 'The competition was very challenging, it was both nerve-wracking and exciting at the same time. My chosen topic was about being true to oneself, as Oscar Wilde famously said 'be yourself, everyone else is taken'. Speaking in public to such large audiences is not easy, what helped me was one of my father's sayings 'There is no success without obstacles'.'

Nayem was awarded a silver trophy and a cheque for the school. 'With the money we have decided to buy books for the library, I'm thrilled that there will be 'plates' inside to commemorate my success and hopefully inspire St Paul's Way Trust speakers of the future.'

Our school has also been praised for our outstanding record of success in the competition over the last three years.
