BBC School Report 2018

Wilmslow High School Reporters.

Wilmslow High School Reporters.

Thursday 15th March saw another successful year for the BBC School Report team at Wilmslow High School. Over 40 Year 9 students were involved throughout the day: researching and planning stories, interviewing students and then writing their stories.  The topics that students have written about show great depth and breadth.

Sensory Garden

After a number of months of student consultation and planning, work on the school’s new Sensory Garden will begin over the half term break.

The project is the result of a bid to Tesco’s Bags for Help scheme which has provided money for the area to be turned into a purposeful outdoor learning space. Head Boy, Joe McBride, and Sodexo school grounds employee Andy Henry (both pictured) have played an active part in the project, including supporting the writing of the bid, working on the designs and liaising with the contractors. Joe Said, “To finally see all of the many months of planning being put into action is very exciting. I feel very proud to have been part of this project and hope that the new space will be a great addition to the many students who will benefit”.


Performing Arts Soirée

Students took to the stage this week in the first ever Wilmslow High School Performing Arts Soirée – an event that celebrated the talent, hard work and dedication of students within the performing arts. A request was made for any budding singers, dancers, actors and musicians who wanted to share their talent with an audience and showcase just some of the performance work taking place in school. The response was staggering and led to over 100 performers taking to the stage on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th February.


Hallé Orchestra Visit

On Monday 5th February our Year 10 and 11 music GCSE classes went to see the Hallé Orchestra perform at the Bridgewater Hall. The programme included performances of set works for GCSE and A level courses, including a live analysis of Haydn’s Clock Symphony which really helped the students to understand how different elements of the music work together. The programme tracked the development of the orchestra through the musical periods, and finished with an exciting performance of ‘Star Wars’ by John Williams.

It was a very informative and enjoyable afternoon which we will hope to attend again next year.
