September Start Dates

17 July 2017

Dear Parent/Carer

It’s been a wonderful term here at Leytonstone School and I would like to thank you all for your support throughout the academic year. A reminder that as tomorrow is the end of term, we will finish at 1.20 – there will be no period 5. Lunches will be provided for students who would like one.

We have had a range of celebrations over the last few weeks. The PE department organised a fantastic sports day and many new records were set. Well done to all the students who took part and gave their best. It was a wonderful occasion. On Tuesday 12th July, the outgoing year 11 had their Prom event. Check out the website for pictures and updates of the evening.

After a rigorous selection process I am also delighted to announce that our Head Girl and Head Boy for 2016-17 are:

  • Sylvie Noble
  • Jay Shotter

Our deputy head girls and boys are:

  • Dumitrita Moruzi
  • Hanna Bras-Genfoud
  • Owureku Osei Kofi
  • Hassan Razzaq

All will bring real and different strengths to their roles and we very much look forward to the sustainable changes they will help to make to the school.

School starts on Tuesday 5th September for our new year 7 students who we are really looking forward to welcoming back.

Years 8-11 start back on Wednesday 6th September. The school will be open from the 1st September but there are 2 teacher Inset days – on 1st and 4th September.

Results day for year 11 is 24th August from 9.30-11.30 in the main hall.

Finally a reminder that in the new academic year, from September there are a few changes to our school uniform. All students must wear a shirt and tie (no polo shirts at KS4) and also no trainers or boots of any kind are to be worn. Please refer to the previous letter on uniform for a detailed breakdown or the school website for more details. Uniforms can continue to be purchased online form Marks and Spencers or from Victoria in Walthamstow: and

I wish you all a restful and enjoyable summer.

Yours faithfully,

Grainne Smyth
