Music with City of London Sinfonia

cls 3
Students at Lavender Walk began an exciting project with musicians from the City of London Sinfonia. They worked with Gawain to create compositions using field recordings of a marsh in Suffolk along with Matt on viola and playing instruments in the classroom. We took inspiration from the book Diary of a Naturalist by Dara McAnulty, the memoir of an autistic teenage boy and his passion for nature.

Congratulations Shaun

We are delighted that Shaun, our artist in residence, has taken up the position of Secretary of HOPE. Shaun will be assisted by Charlotte. We also send a huge thank you to Kim, who has previously worked so hard in the role of HOPE Secretary.

Thank you!


Together we raised £1470 to help support Cissy train to be a teacher in Uganda. Thank you to everyone who made this possible through their generosity. This is the most wonderful success for Cissy, we are all so very delighted for her, another story of how despite facing difficult medical problems it is still possible to achieve your life goals.

The highlight of the day was when was Robin joined our session dressed as Super Burrito! A great day filled with stories, poems and laughter. Happy World Book Day 2021!

The sun is shining, showing up my rain and mud-streaked windows - surely there has been time for a spring clean? Thank goodness the relentless rain causing parks to be sodden has lifted.  Even my dog, Dolores, began to run and hide when the lead came to take her for yet another freezing cold walk - yes, we have warmth, light and some freedom to look forward to.

Music with MiSST

The joys of cycling!

Our English teacher got a puncture cycling in to work this morning. Luckily it was near to where our Music teacher was working from home - puncture fixed! Now watch out for that ice!

Lavender Walk Students' RSPCA Fundraiser

Can you help the students of Lavender Walk make a difference? They have decided to adopt the RSPCA as their chosen charity and help raise money to support the work that it does. The RSPCA is the leading UK animal welfare charity. They work to prevent harm and cruelty to animals. They also rescue, rehabilitate and rehomes animals in need. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much. Every donation, large or small, helps.
