Middlewich High School

Achievement for all

Head's Blog 23/03/2015

Today has been a fantastic end to another positive fortnight here at Middlewich High School.  Thanks to our Science department who had ordered special glasses to make it safe to look at the sun, our students were given the opportunity to view the incredible solar eclipse this morning.  It is events such as these that remind us how important it is to support our students’ learning experiences not only in the classroom, but also to encourage them to appreciate significant educational events such as these.  There was a wonderful atmosphere around the school and I am sure that it will be something our staff and students will always remember.

The Middlewich Oscars took place on Friday 13th March and I could not be happier for our very own Mrs Julie Barker, who won the prestigious Arts & Culture Contribution of the Year Award due to Julie’s involvement with Middlewich High School Community Choir.  You can click here to see photos from the evening and read more about Mrs Barker’s well-deserved award.

On Saturday 7th March, a team of thirteen of our year 9 students took part in the South and East National Magistrates’ Court Mock Trial Competition.  Despite only having had a few weeks to prepare after another school pulled out, they were announced as runners up after performing exceptionally well.  They showed a maturity beyond their years in their defence of the fictional case and we are all very proud of them.  I encourage you to read more about their experience by clicking here.

 I would also like to congratulate ASC Teaching Assistant Ms Williamson, who has won a “Best of the North West” lottery bid of £10,000 for her Dance School which will help to support the emotional and physical wellbeing of our own students through dance next year. 

I am sure that the remaining weeks we have before the Easter break will be just as positive as the past fortnight has been.  Make sure to check back here every two weeks for the next entries to my blog.
