Parents, carers and Y11 students are invited to hear Post 16 talks and attend drop in sessions for UCAS progress training.
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.

Y10 Students Dress to Impress
Y10 students from Stocksbridge High School took part in the annual Dress to Impress day held at school on Wednesday 25 May. This annual event supports and prepare Year 10 students being 'Dressed to Impress' and is a good preparation for their two weeks work experience at the end of June. The day is also an opportunity to support their development and ideas around career aspirations and the world of work.
The day was supported by college tutors and local employers coming into school to take part in mock interview situations. The exercise is an invaluable experience for students by helping them with any forthcoming interviews for work experience, employment, apprenticeships and further education. Students were asked to come appropriately dressed in smart clothes for the day.
Just like any interview, students will receive feedback and hopefully this will give advice and information on 'what went well' and how to improve further for their next interview.
As part of enrichment, all Stocksbridge High School Y10 students will spend two weeks out of school on work experience at the end of June. The students have been encouraged to contact local businesses and organisations personally to seek the opportunity of work experience in the different types of employment sectors including engineering, retail, IT, sports and leisure, hair and beauty.
The school is keen to promote relationships with local businesses and encourage partnership around any opportunities for potential work experience for our students in the future.
