This term, nine of our Year 9 students took part in a Netball Tournament at Condover Hall, where they played a total of 8 matches over the weekend of the 17th June. The girls narrowly lost to a Year 10 team, putting them in second place overall, however first in their age group. The students’ attitude and behaviour was impeccable all weekend and they were a fantastic representation of the school.
For all parents and carers of pupils going on the Studley High Barcelona trip on 13th July, please read the below important information:
This week, our Y10 Photography students went to Birmingham City University in Birmingham to see the work of Art and Photography final year degree students and meet student ambassadors. They visited the beautiful Margaret St campus, where they saw Fine Art and Art & Design work, then went to the Parkside Building, seeing fantastic examples of work from students in Fashion, Photography, Interior Design and Architecture.
The trip was an opportunity for our Y10 pupils to see end of degree show work, speak to course leaders and ask questions about the rich variety of work they saw.
We were proud to read about Jacob in the Redditch Standard this week. Jacob Tipping in Year 8 and his friend are offering gardening services to elderly and disabled people in and around Studley this Summer, and doing it all for nothing.
Inspired by an American initiative, they have committed to reaching various milestones in the project and have started their support already. You can read about the challenge here:

Just before half term, our Year 7s created a stunning array of active volcanoes as part of a Science competition and as part of a homework task.
Our first set of images show the volcanoes in their ‘pre-erupted’ state, as displayed in school reception (close to the fire extinguishers of course!). What a beautiful collection.
The majority of working examples used one of two methods: Cola and Mentos or vinegar and bicarbonate. Methods of ‘eruption’ included a full working water feature using a pond pump and a blow up exploding balloon.
Our second set of images show the pupils ‘igniting’ their volcanoes with Mr Willett, Mrs Harris and Ms Haines. There were many winners, in a range of categories, chosen by the pupil leadership team.
This Wednesday 24th May, Studley High School welcomed Samantha May, an Australian International Netball player, currently playing for Wasps Netball in the UK Super League. Sam lead a coaching session on ‘driving space’ and ‘movement around the court’ with our Year 9 and Year 10 netball teams. These skills are very high level and will support the girls with GCSE P.E, especially with netball assessments.
The girls had a fantastic morning and learned so much from such an experienced sportsperson.
