Wilson’s Undaunted!

This week, Mr Coop spoke to Years 7 and 9 about the need for an indomitable spirit. A desire to succeed against the odds. Never has this been more important than now. Although we continue to face significant challenges, I would like to celebrate the Wilson's community and pay tribute to both the extraordinary efforts of the staff and the resilience of the boys. Wilson's has a history dating back to its foundation in 1615, and has endured through war, plague and political turmoil aplenty. Perhaps this knowledge that triumph and disaster come and go and Wilson's remains is part of what has enabled the school to feel so positive, cheerful and industrious since September.

However, whilst the country finds itself in the eye of the storm, herculean efforts have ensured that Wilson's remains an oasis of calm. Hard work and team spirit are seeing us through. As such, as just a little good news, I am pleased to announce that The Sunday Times has named us as London State School of the Decade. This does not in any way encourage complacency or self-satisfaction on our part, but perhaps allows us all just a moment of understated pleasure at this difficult time.

Below: a selection of photos from the past decade.

Deputy Head's Reminder

Charity Fundraising

School staff are currently pondering how to build on Mrs Gill's legacy in relation to charity fundraising. Pupils are urged to raise ideas of their own via their form tutors. Spring 2021 will see the formation of a new formal Charities Committee for pupils and members of staff.

Every man must decide whether he will walk in the creative light of altruism or the darkness of destructive selfishness. This is the judgement. Life's persistent and most urgent question is "What are you doing for others?"
