Year 11s have been studying hard for their GCSEs and are now looking forward to celebrating the end of their High School careers.

Teaching staff at MHS have given extra support, offering revision sessions after school. “The revision sessions are amazing,” says one Year 11 girl. “We’ve had pizza after school and breakfast before exams. Our teachers are making sure we’ve got everything we need to succeed and it’s really helped with our confidence.”

Prizegiving is soon to take place with students returning for a special assembly and every student wants to earn the prestigious Headteacher’s Award. And they won’t have to wait long for the Prom. Crewe Hall has been booked and the staff are making sure their students have an evening they’ll never forget. “The Prom is a really special event. I think the staff enjoy it almost as much as our students!” says Heidi Thurland, Headteacher. “After all the hard work we want to make sure our students can celebrate in style. They deserve it, we’re really proud of the prolonged effort they’ve made to get where they are now and we wish them every success in the next phase of their lives.”

While Year 11s celebrate the end of their time at MHS, there’s just as much to look forward to for the new cohort of 2022. Year 6s are preparing for their transition to High School with planned activities to help them get to know the school and what to expect.

Teachers have been involved with partner primary schools since January. “The transition can feel daunting and we want to make it as easy as possible for our new Year 7s so that they can hit the ground running with their education here. We know they’ll make friends and they should enjoy their learning with us. The move up to High School also means that each child needs to take more responsibility for getting to school ready to learn every day. Students will need good focus and a serious attitude to achieving success and we’ll support them every step of the way.” 

Middlewich High School is ready to welcome local families at their Open Evening on 6th July. It’s an opportunity to get to know the school, what’s on offer for students and how parents can get involved.
