There wasn’t a spare seat in the house as potential students and their families turned out for Wales High School’s Y6 Open Evening.
The community was out in force to speak with staff and current students about the school, take in the surroundings and see why our students are so successful.
Everyone at the school worked hard to create different experiences for all subjects and departments.
Geography encouraged visitors to take part in a number of different subject themed quizzes, the English department dressed up as Gods and Goddesses, Technology offered up a selection of pizzas to try whilst Science hosted a showcase of various experiments.
Head of Lower School, Richard Harrison said,
“I don’t remember seeing the Sports Hall so full with over 750 seats taken and still families standing at the back of the hall. Y6 Open Evening is such a special event and the school looked fantastic. I was inundated with positive comments from families as they walked around school and it speaks volumes for the commitment, dedication and professionalism of all staff and students to be able to put on such a fantastic evening”
It wasn’t just about experiencing lessons, visitors also had the chance to sample the food on offer to pupils in the dining hall.
Other areas that impressed were History where staff recreated a trench, victory party and managed to house a mobile museum. Languages offered an array of food from around the world and the Kevin Shore Vocational Academy was on hand to display courses in Construction, Motor Vehicle Maintenance and Hairdressing.
The number of Year 7 students wanting to take a place at Wales High School has been extremely high over the past three years with Year 6 Open Evening playing a big part in persuading pupils and families to choose a 21st century education built on traditional values.
