Head's Blog 2nd October 2017
We have had another busy couple of weeks here at Middlewich High. We held our annual Open Evening on the 21st, which is one of the most enjoyable events of the academic year. Once again, it was lovely to see so many visitors and our students who helped on the evening, were a credit to the school.
The Open Mornings have also been a huge success; it is a great opportunity for prospective students and parents to see the school during a normal working day and we look forward to welcoming them next year. If you were unable to attend, but would still like to visit the school, please contact the office on 01606288170.
The Sky Studios trip is something our students look forward to every year, and this one didn’t disappoint. It is a fantastic chance for them to see behind the scenes at a major broadcasting company, and ideal for anyone looking at a career in the media; have a look at the News section for a full account of the day, and some pictures of them in action.
Our PE department hosted the Primary cross-country competition at Cledford Primary School last week. This is a great chance for all the local primary schools to get together in friendly competition, and our new Sports Prefects did themselves proud in their first official role. It was lovely to see so many parents and carers coming out to support the event, and for once the sun was shining!
Congratulations also go to our Year 7 football team for their draw against Knutsford on Wednesday night. In the cold and wet they twice came back from defeat to draw 3-3 against a very strong Knutsford side. It was a real demonstration of determination and team spirit.
Thursday saw our first i-Value day of the year. Once again it was an inspiring day, and our students really engaged with the outside agencies who were kind enough to spend the day with us. They heard from a number of people, from police, Customs, Samaritans and Beat to the local colleges who came to talk to Year 11 about their next steps. Although I think the most popular visitor had to be Cody the sniffer dog, who came in with his handler to discuss his role in airport security!
