In partnership with Stockwell Community Green Service, the School organises various educational, community and civic engagement trips and visits to various national and local places.
Students have been given the opportunity to partake in world renowned international conferences and seminars, such as speaking alongside international politicians, community leaders, businessmen and women, FTSE 100 companies etc. A group of 15 top performing students have gone to meet the Mayor of Waltham Forest in his Chamber, the Worshipful Masood Ahmed. Students were able to hear about the local area, political system, and the personal experience and determination of the Mayor which enabled him to reach his esteemed position after coming to the UK as a student himself many years ago. This inspired the students greatly, with one wanting to become a Mayor himself.
SOEL also organises free sporting activities for students, jointly with Student Ambassadors, in football, cricket, swimming, taekwondo, karate and boxing.
Apart from community engagement and recreational trips, we have also organised trips that enhance student learning, such as the trip to Coca Cola Enterprises. To look at some photos from this trip, please click here.
