Dear Parents and Carers,
We have discovered that many of you have not received our email survey, instead it has been going to junk/spam folders. After much research and time, we believe we have found a solution for more of you to give your feedback. We realise and appreciate at this point that some of the questions in the survey may not apply to your child, however, we kindly request you complete the survey as best as possible at this point so we can gather as many views, judgements and more so, full picture of our school. We will make the necessary improvements to the survey for the end of year one we will be publishing.
As we know you are extremely busy, we appreciate the time taken to complete the survey. We value your say in helping us improve the education of your child/children. Please find the survey link here: Parent and Carer School Feedback Survey
This will help us to:
The survey is 100% anonymous so please be honest with your answers.
Your feedback is very important to us.
Ms. M. King
30 Year 12 students today began their preparation with local Law firm, Lanyon Bowdler for the school ‘mock courtroom trial’ which will take place on Wednesday 1st April. Students split into 3 teams today – Prosecution, Defence and Jury, with Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors training them. Session 2 is in 2 weeks time.
Good luck and well done to all involved.
Mr D. Thomas
These are a series of Parental Seminars taking place at Shrewsbury High School. The first session is on Thursday 12th March from 4.45-6pm and will be all about supporting girls in their preparation for examinations, assessments and tests. Please see the attached document for more details.
The Apprenticeship and Skills Show was attended by 30 Year 12 and 13 students (after school), to research their desired careers and options. This was very worthwhile and the students made lots of contacts, along with work shadowing information and guidelines as to how to apply for Apprenticeships.
Below is a selection of the exciting real-life skills that our Year 10 and 12's are participating in.
Year 12 students are taking part in BASE (Business, Accountancy, Skills Education). This is a competition and employability skills development challenge whereby students undertake an online game and video presentation, tackling real-life investment and accountancy situations.
Congratulations to our 15 Year 9 students who took part in the 'History Big Quiz 2020' at the University of Birmingham, on the 11th February. The 15 students were split across 4 teams with Idsall taking, not only Ist but also 3rd and 4th place as well! This is an impressive achievement as they were competing against 12 schools (26 teams in total), from across the West Midlands. Thank you to Mr Summerhayes (Head of History) and Mr Thomas (Head of Aspirations), for giving our students the chance to experience and showcase their talents in the auspicious surroundings of the 'University Great Hall'. Not forgetting the History Department (who have taught them so well), and the students who were a credit to the school!
Our annual Harry Potter event took place in the library after school on Wednesday. 20 Harry Potter enthusiasts participated in activities such as bookmark making, a maze, different tri-wizard events, face-painting and an opportunity to have a picture taken with the world famous Tri-Wizard trophy. The library was very atmospheric with the Sorting hat, Goblet of Fire, wands, various posters and displays (all made by our Librarian, Mrs Hazlehurst). The children (and adults), definitely got into the spirit of things and had a thoroughly WIZARDING time! Thank you once again to Mrs Hazlehurst for organising and running the event.
