Our next open morning will be held on Monday 20th June 2022 at 9.30am. To book your place, please email Karen Hayward at

There will be a talk from the Principal, a tour of the school, and a chance to ask any questions throughout the morning. The open morning is aimed at parents/carers only at this initial stage.

Spotlight on science

Students in KS3 have been learning about animals over the last few weeks. The BIG QUESTION was ‘What habitats are there local to The Link and what do they provide for animals?’ Students had fun drawing a huge map of the local area and added all the animals and habitats they could think of. A fieldtrip to Waddon Pond along the river Wandle followed where they investigated local habitats and spotted real life animals. An outing to Pets at Home illustrated some career options linked to their learning and provided an opportunity for students to see a huge variety of fish and other small mammals. Back in the classroom students learnt about the way scientists classify animals, practised science skills of observation and drew some beautiful insects. They also went on a treasure hunt to spot invertebrates in the school garden (not too many this time of year). The topic concluded with thinking about threats to the environment. Students really understood the impact of things such as pollution, litter and global warming on the environment. All the students are really looking forward to seeing more types of animals in London Zoo in November.

There is a lovely feeling at school, it is always very positive, warm and welcoming – Parent
