A great place to bring a date. chilled out and relaxed and really not as expensive as you would expect it to be. If you are on a strict budget, go elsewhere but if you want to impress a date, definately come here.

A fantastic Sixth Form centre where two remarkable schools combine to form the mixed St. Angela’s and St. Bonaventure’s Sixth Form Centre.
Students and staff work hard together with mutual co-operation and respect in an enjoyable and highly-focused learning environment. Students have extra rights and responsibilities and everyone is motivated to achieve success.
Mainly based in St. Angelas Ursuline school, it does require a 5 minute walk to some lessons in St. Bonaventures School.
The Sixth Form Centre offers a post-16 education with a wide range of courses, an excellent record of results and a supportive environment for students.
They are a Catholic Sixth Form and are proud of their traditions but they welcome a diversity of students into the Sixth Form.
Every year they aim to beat the previous years A level grades. Always striving to be the best, the sixth form provides you with the ability to study on your own as well as provide assistance whenever you may need it. The years A level results were as follows:
Further success at A-Level where the number of A or B grades achieved by the students in the Sixth Form Centre rising again. The girls led the way again with 54.76% (28.04% being A grades) and the boys not disgraced with 43.06% (16.15% being A grades). Due to the excellent grades received by the students, every year around 15 students apply to Oxford or Cambridge University, with a high number being accepted.
On June 11th 2008, the headteacher Delia Smith attended Buckingham Palace to receive the OBE awarded to her in the New Year’s honours list.
A great Sixth form that sets you up on the right path whether you opt to go to uni or start work. With the great career centre, you will know your path before the end of your time here. I Recommend this Sixth Form Centre very highly.

This was my sisters school. It is linked to my secondary school, St. Bonaventures, as St. Angelas is the all girls version and mine was the all boys. For the sixth form, these 2 schools merge to form St. Angelas and St. Bonaventures Sixth Form Centre.
St. Angelas is one of the best schools in the and is constantly fighting St. Bonaventures for the best performing school in Newham. St. Angelas GCSE results for the last year are as follows:
They achieved fantastic GCSE results with 90.2% achieving 5 or more A* to C grades of which 79% including both English and Mathematics.
However, it is at the highest grades that they continue to improve with A* grades totalling 12.33% and combined with A grades the figure rises to 35.16%, a significant jump on last year.
As a Leading Edge School, their achievements and commitment to raising standards have long been recognised. They were also one of the first schools nationwide to be awarded specialist status (as a Technology College). Staff development and training programmes continue to keep their teachers motivated and well informed. They also benefit from ongoing investment in facilities and teaching resources.
Despite their remarkable record of achievement, students come from a variety of backgrounds and academic starting points. The school population reflects the Catholic population of the borough, which is largely Afro-Caribbean, African, Filipino and white. 70% of school population are from ethnic minorities.
Oh, and the Revelation Gospel Choir from that recent BBC show was created here.

At the forefront of learning for almost 120 years, St Bonaventure’s provides comprehensive education for boys aged 11 to 18. Originally a grammar school founded by the Franciscans, it was the first voluntary aided comprehensive school to be awarded technology college status in East London.
This was my secondary school. I had a great time here. As a Technology College, St Bonaventure’s endeavours to promote an educational climate which is scientific, technological and vocational. Almost half the timetable is taken up with the teaching of Technology, Information Technology, Mathematics and Science.
Located in Forest Gate, it has great access by both the district line (Get off at Upton park and then a 10min walk), and by plenty of buses so access is not a problem.
In terms of uniform, years 7-9 wear a brown blazer with gold trim, gold and black stripped tie, black trousers and black shoes. year 10-11 students wear a black blazer with gold trim, yellow and black stripped tie, black trousers and black shoes. the P.E Kit was the same for both. It was white shorts, Blue jersey with a white horizontal stripe, and trainers.
During my time, years 7-9 were not allowed outside of school for lunch. years 10-11 were allowed. School dinners were nothing special although the doughnuts were great. Outside of school, there are plenty of chicken shops and newsagents about 2 minutes walkfrom the school.
This is a great school with a natural progression into the sixth form centre which has a high level of oxbridge applicants and admissions. One of the best (If not the best) consistantly for the last 15 years in grades. Highly recommended.

This was my primary school and what a school it is. A great performer, both pre and post my attendance there, in its Ofstead reports. This is a great school where education comes top. My 2 sisters and brother also went here. It has a selection policy where family memebers are considered first among applicants. Not only that, but parents who send their children here do not have to worry about Secondary school, as there is a natural progression for St. helens students to go to St. Bonaventures (All boys school) or its sister school St. Angelas (All Girls school). Students form St. Helens are almost guaranteed a spot at these two excellent Secondary schools, which combine for Sixth form.
A brief history of the school
St Helen’s is a Catholic Voluntary Aided Primary School situated in the London Borough of Newham. The first school in the Parish of St. Margaret’s was founded in 1870. This was destroyed by the heavy bombing of London during World War II. A statue marks the spot where the bomb landed.
The present school was rebuilt by Franciscan Missionaries of Mary, in 1951 and is now part of the Diocese of Brentwood.
The bungalow style building is set in beautiful grounds which includes a pond. The building is horseshoe shaped and includes a large assembly and sports hall, separate dining hall, library and a new computer room to which all children have access. There is a separate nursery with its own fully equipped playground.
The school uniform hasn’t changed since i went there. It is still:
School polo shirt
Grey trousers/shorts (boys)
Grey trousers/skirt (girls)
A school, which i highly recommend.

Im not a big fan of either Yates or Weatherspoons as they are always packed out. Its not often i can get a seat once i walk in. The one saving grace for it is the sports, mainly teh football. Saying that, there are not many screens, so if you get there just before the match, then the chances are you will not get to watch the match. If you do go for the football, especially england, make sure you get there very early. I mean 3 hours earlier than the match starts. You still wont get a seat, but you can get your spot ready for the match. Depending on what time you go there, you may have to watch how you are dressed. Some bouncers are very fussy, especially in the evenings. No tracksuits, no trainers, no caps and definately no hoodies. this dress code is pretty normal and if you are dressed casually, chances are you will not be admitted to any of the other bars and pubs around stratford. In the nights, the music is great. Usually RnB and hip hop, with some dance thrown in. A pretty standard place. Depending on how much you drink, you will have different opinions on how your night went.

Wow, when was this picture taken??? I have never seen barking this quiet before, especially as there is barking station across the road to it!!!
Anyway, this is perhaps my favourite pub that i have been to. It is situated in Barking, East London. With Barking Station being across the road, it has great access by the district, hammersmith & city and C2C lines. Dispite being in a very busy area (there are also 2 bus stations nearby and bus stops outside where around 10 different buses stop) the pub is actually quite quiet. There are 5 main area in this pub. The first is the front beer garden. With seats and tables, it is always open in the summer although quite a small area. Not my favourite place. Usually the last resort if all other seats are filled. The second is the main area, where the bar is. This is as you walk in. There are plenty of tables and chairs here wich are usually the first to get filled. The third is the back area. This is my favourite area. It has that old pub feel to it, with beer barrels and beer making instruments stuck to the walls and ceilings. There are plenty of booths here along both walls, left and right. There is a sofa area in the middle. During the days and most weekday evenings and weekends, this area is pretty quiet and is air conditioned. The forth area is the private room. I think the pub came with a small room, so they turned it into a private booth area that will seat around 6 people. The fifth is the back beer garden. This is a secluded outdoor area which is rather large. During the summer, it is a great area to sit. Its very quiet considering a tube line runs underneath.
I think the main reason this pub is quiet is that there is a weatherspoons next door. As this is a very popular chain that sells food, that pub is mostly packed. I am not sure why more people do not go here. i love it. Occassionally on fridays, there are performers there, from elvis imporsonators, irish singers and various bands.
The staff are great. very polite and helpful. There is also a wide range of beers, largers and ales. A great place to go for a quiet pint. Very highly recommended.

ahhh a great bar. There are quite alot of these scattered and i think alot are based on this ones design. There is alot of space for the nights but during the day, they are very pleasant to be in. They are quite, well air conditioned and it has a great outdoor area for the smokers and anyone else who fancy relaxing in the sun. The sports are great, especially the football. It gets very packed if an england game is on, so if you do want to watch it down a pub, either get here very early or go elsewhere as you wont be able to get a look at the screens.

I have only recently learned how good the clothes are here. I always used to think they the clothes were more suited to the alternative character but how wrong was i. Instead, they produce some of the best fitting clothes on the market. It is clear that they spend alot of money on R&D as they have such a wide range of clothes that you will always find something that you like. This store is everything that the brand stands for. It is slick, classy and there is something grand about it. I like H&M, not just because it sells great clothes, as there are plenty of designers who do the same. The difference is that H&M clothes do not cost the earth. in fact, they are rather cheap. I suggest you get down to regents street and check it out. If you dont like it, there is always something on regents street to take your fancy.
Elephant Rd, London SE17 1LB
An absolutely great place. being a londoner, i dont get to appreciate an area of green as large as this. Its amazing to go there at lunch, either to eat or to meet some beautiful people there. I love to buy an ice cream and sit in the park, especially on a hot day. It brings you back to your childhood days of being carefree. Iam also looking forward to the iceskating. There are a few places being converted into outdoor ice rinks but hyde park has to be the best.
