Year Group Letters to Parents
Copies of recent year group letters sent to parents usually via pupil post, can also be downloaded from our Letters to Parents page.
When students join Idsall School in Year 7 and the Sixth Form they are placed into 1 of 4 Houses – Long Mynd, Caradoc, Ragleth and Wrekin and remain in the same House throughout their school life. Placing students in Houses enables inter-school competition at all levels as well as creating a sense of belonging.
