Welcome to Nishkam School West London, a place of great optimism, purposefulness and calm where pupils not only excel academically but also learn to become compassionate and respectful human beings.
Hopes are set very high for our outstanding-rated all-through school, as we look for our pupils to achieve the very best in preparation for higher education and a life of purpose. Firm foundations have already been laid, with primary results in Key Stage 1 placing the school’s performance in the top 5% for attainment nationally. But even more encouraging for us are the values demonstrated by our pupils in their everyday lives.
The next 40 days are a time of introspection and spiritual growth for Christians worldwide. During this season, Christian's reflect, repent, and renew their faith, mirroring Jesus Christ's 40 days in the desert. From fasting to prayer and acts of charity, Christian's seek to deepen their connection with God and practice discipline.
Celebrating Safer Internet Day! Let's use this as a reminder to practise kindness online, raise awareness about internet safety, and empower each other to navigate the digital realm responsibly. Together, we can make the internet a safer and more positive space.
United Nations Interfaith Harmony Week This week marks United Nations' Interfaith Harmony Week, where people of faith recognise the beauty of diversity in all God's creation and our different faith paths. In doing so, we recognise the divine spark in every single one of us.
Golden Thread Two This week we are highlighting the second Golden Thread! Students are reflecting on how peace & collaboration can be used to overcome the vice of blame. Practising these virtues will allow us to treat others how we wish to be treated: with love, compassion, and respect.
Today we commemorate the birth of Siri Guru Gobind Singh ji, the 10th Sikh Guru and father of the Khalsa. We remember his example of all that is righteous, never letting go of virtue, even in the face of extreme circumstances.
To all our pupils, teachers and families have a wonderful break and all the best to those moving on to chapters new and to all those back in the new academic year we will see our Nishkam family soon.
