First week of term

The new Autumn term started on Tuesday 3rd September when we welcomed 120 new students into Year 7 together with older students in year groups across the school and 5 new members of the teaching staff.

The school has certainly been buzzing this week as our young people negotiate their way around their new school environment, dealing with different lessons in different classrooms, different teachers for each subject and deciding what food to buy in the school canteen! All students have arrived looking very smart in their new uniforms, well equipped and ready to start the new chapter in their lives. They are already engaging well in their lessons and anxious to join some of the many after school clubs which will be starting shortly. This intake is the largest Year 7 intake for many years, being fully subscribed with a waiting list. As we continue to help our new starters settle into life at Shipston High School, we are now turning our thoughts to those pupils in Year 6 at local primary schools who will shortly be visiting us with a view to making their applications for next September and we are currently making preparations for our Open Evening on Thursday 26th September.
