Year 9 - A 'New Era in Construction'
On 10 March 2017, Year 9 students from Stocksbridge High visited the New Era development in the centre of Sheffield to gain an insight into careers in the construction industry. Students were shown the various stages of a multi-million pound building development which will include a supermarket and numerous retail outlets, student accommodation and private residences to transform the city skyline. The students were shown around the construction site, following a health and safety building and getting geared up with their safety kit, with various careers discussed as the students were on the tour. Well done to those students involved.
Year 10 - Hospitality Spring Forward
15 March 2017, Year 10 Food preparation and nutrition students from Stocksbridge
High School took part in the annual Hospitality Spring Forward event at
Sheffield Hallam University. Students initially took part in a range of
interactive tasks as part of a careers marketplace and then were shown around
the different areas of the Hospitality industry at the Mercure St Pauls hotel.
This included a tour of the spa facilities with discussion of possible career
paths, an explanation of the careers possible in the industry from the Kerry
Mabbley of the Springboard organisation and setting the restaurant to the
standards of a four star hotel, with a competition between the students. Within
the Springboard activity students also made a range of excellent play dough
models to represent the range of opportunities available.
Y11 Netball Team - League Champions
Well done again to the Y11 netball team of Isabelle, Beth, Dayna, Millie and Katie, Gianna, Kayla, Autumn and Amy. Following on from their previous success in the Sheffield secondary schools U16 competition. The girls are now league champions. After their final game they
are unbeaten this season, a great achievement, well done.
Over the summer 2016 we took 39 year 8 and 9 pupils to St Omer in France to enjoy a World War One experience. Whilst in France, pupils had the opportunity to reflect on the lives taken on the battlefield in a very engaging way. We began the trip by visiting Sheffield Memorial Park which really helped localise this for the pupils. We then moved on to visit several British and German graveyards and an array of impressive memorials throughout the Somme and Ypres.
On the Wednesday night, our pupils were lucky enough to experience the atmospheric Last Post Ceremony in Ypres after spending the say at Flanders Field Museum, the Hill 62 trench system and a sneaky visit to a well known chocolate shop in the area. We also visited the Passchendale Museum which proved to be an enriching experience for our pupils. Regardless of the 34 degree heat, our pupils were exemplary and their conduct and behaviour was specifically praised by the education centre and the coach company.
We are extremely proud of the maturity and level of engaged that our pupils showed whilst on this residential. At Stocksbridge High School we truly believe that these experience change some of our pupils and we believe that all pupils should have the opportunity to experience a trip like this and we can only hope that we are able to run a similarly successful trip this academic year.
