Ofsted Outstanding

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.

Just before the Christmas break, SPWT had the pleasure of receiving a visit from Sir Michael Wilshaw, Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Education, who came to launch the 2013 National Ofsted report.

The event was filmed and reported by all the major TV channels and a number of national newspapers, with BBC, Sky and ITV press teams following the visit step by step.

Sir Michael was warmly welcomed by Headteacher Grahame Price, Chair of Trustees Professor Philip Ogden and our pupils, who were very excited about the event.

Sir Michael went out of his way to spend time talking with the pupils despite his tight schedule.

Sir Michael Wilshaw visited Maths, Latin and Chemistry classes and posed some surprise questions to the pupils, which they promptly and impressively answered. SPWT school council members also had the opportunity to meet with Sir Michael.

Staff and students were thrilled to welcome the Head of Ofsted to our school.

Following the visit, we were delighted to receive a lovely letter of thanks from Sir Michael - Click to read
