With the National secondary schools place offer day taking place at the beginning of March, we are pleased to announce that 130 place offers have been made for entry into Year 7 in September.

Our offer to the local authority to extend our admission number from 120 to 130 for this new academic year only, due to the popularity of the school and high demand for places, was well received. This has meant that, although we are still running a waiting list for those unsuccessful applicants, we will be able to enrol additional students who may otherwise have failed to obtain a place.  Our aim has always been to try and accommodate all applicants within our school’s priority area seeking a place at Shipston High School and our increased intake next year goes a further step in achieving that ambition.

At this stage, we are expecting to be able to re-establish our Induction day for new starters early in July.

Because of the restrictions put in place on social gatherings during the pandemic, we are very aware that the vast majority of our new starters and their parents have as yet been unable to look around the school and we are looking forward to rectifying this situation.

A personalised letter of welcome has been sent to all our successful applicants.
