Year 9 students performed a very special play on the 11th November to mark Armistice Day and the centenary of the outbreak of World War I.
On Thursday 23rd October we held our annual Awards Evening. Over 200 students received a variety of awards and GCSE certificates. Guest speaker was Conor Murphy, former student of the school who was Head Boy from 2009-2010.
The Royal Liberty School successfully achieved the renewal of the Investor in Careers Award on Thursday 13th November, 2014. Investor in Careers is a quality standard for the management of careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG). We as a school had to demonstrate a commitment to provide impartial, independent careers education, information, advice and guidance to all young people.
Congratulations to our Year 11 students who performed so well in the GCSE examinations. Despite a 1.9% drop nationally in the A*-C pass rate in English, our results in the subject rose and are now well above the national average.
Dustbins, hosepipes and plastic food containers were just some of the “instruments” that formed part of a stomp-style orchestra last week.

Each class from the school in Upper Brentwood Road, Romford, had their own ochestra and were tasked with impressing judge and musician Malcolm Henderson in the battle to be crowned champions.
Essex Schools High Jump Champion - Congratulations to Aaron who is the Year 7 boys Essex schools High jump champion. Aaron represented Havering at this competition and cleared a height of 1.40m. This is an excellent achievement and is a result of Aaron's hard work, determination and commitment to Athletics. We look forward to Aaron leading a strong year 7 boys team at District Athletics on the 2nd July.
We took strong junior and intermediate boys teams to the Chelmsford Athletics stadium in May. It was a gloriously sunny day with many exceptional performances from the boys. It is a team event where pupils take part in different events earning points for their team. The junior boys (308) and the intermediate boys (281) were our best results for 3 years. The top individual performances came from Shane Johnson and Nathan Meskell who both earn themselves English Schools Athletics Gold awards. Well done to all students for a great day.
Mr Flynn launched the famous Royal Liberty rockets to start Easter with a bang.
A group of music students had the wonderful opportunity to play at a conference held at the British Museum in London. The students M Selby, A Harvey, D Smart, J Davies, S Faisal, F Hawksbee and M Lawes played a set of 5 songs all based on the theme of money.
We are committed to achieving high standards for all our students. Our expectations of students are high in terms of academic achievement and personal behaviour.
As a relatively small secondary school we believe that we have the opportunity to know each of our students as individuals. Respect for other people is one of our core values and this contributes to a strong school community. Students here are encouraged to take on leadership roles and responsibilities from an early age. We have a strong programme of extra-curricular activities and expect our students to make a positive contribution to school life.
With recent examination results above the national average and good Ofsted reports we offer an excellent education for boys of all interests and abilities.
