Itinerary for GCSE History Residential
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 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.
