World Book Day 2023

Last week for World Book Day some of our year 7 students took part in the 'Great Footy & Booky Quiz 2023' with authors Alex Bellos & Ben Lyttleton. Our pupils enjoyed putting their football and literacy knowledge to the test & they did a fantastic job working in teams to answer the questions!


Pre-Loved Uniform

At The Cornelius Vermuyden School, we have a large amount of pre-loved school uniform that has been kindly donated by parents and former students of ours.


The Yellow Door Carousel Day

On Thursday 26th January, The Yellow Door visited The Cornelius Vermuyden School, for a Carousel Day and met with students from Years 7-11. This was a great opportunity for our students to find out more about what they do and how they can potentially support in the coming years. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents and carers who also attended the session for them after school where they spoke to the Yellow Door workers and had the opportunity to ask questions and become more aware of the services. Your support is much appreciated.
