    Inspiration at Bishop Walsh School
    23rd October 2013

    Well done to the school choir 'Inspiration' on another inspirational performance, this time at the Catholic Partnership Music Event on the 23rd September. Special mention must go to Tia Clarke (Year 10) who performed an outstanding rendition of a beautiful song 'Almost is Never Enough'. The choir came up with the goods too, singing a heartfelt version of 'Read All About It' and a very lively 'Roar' to complete the set. The audience loved it and many complimentary comments were made. Well done again to all our singers; but we mustn't forget the contribution of Dontae Ricketts (Year 8) who accompanied the items sensitively on the drums, as well as backing the combined Partnership Choir at the end of the evening. An inspiring evening; thankyou to all staff and parents who supported. Read More

    17th October 2013

    Between the 7th and 11th October over 50 Year 11 Geographers visited the River Windrush in the Costwolds in order to collect data for their Centre Controlled Assessments. Visiting several sites along the river, a tributary of the River Thames, the pupils got into the water (over waist deep in places) in order to measure width, depth and flow velocity. All the pupils worked extremely well and excellent teamwork was the order of the day.

  • Magistrates’ Court Mock Trial Competition
    12th October 2013

    Over the past two years, the school has taken part in Criminal Courts competitions namely the Bar and the Magistrates’ Court Mock Trial Competition. This year we are taking part in the Magistrates’ Court Mock Trial Competition. This is organised in partnership with the Magistrates' Association and sponsored by Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunal Service (an executive agency of the Ministry of Justice) and the Jomati Foundation. It provides a forum in which students will take the roles of any of the main court personals that staff the Magistrates’ Court. The school is now recruiting for this competition, and the competition is open to years eight and nine students. If you have any of the following attributes: interested in the functioning of the English Legal System, confident, can remain claim under pressure, and the ability to ‘think on your feet, can commit to lunch time and after school meetings; these are all desirable attributes for the competition. You may register your interest at room G4 with Mr Clarke. There are only 14 places, and places will be allocated purely on the above desirable attributes. This is also a good way to increase your Vivo Miles as miles will be allocated to pupils for participation, attendance to rehearsals, and unique skills displayed though-out preparing for the competition; looking forward to seeing you.

  • 12 Angry Men at the Birmingham Rep

    12 Angry Men at the Birmingham Rep
    10th October 2013

    On Thursday 10th October, some of our Sixth-form students went to see a production of ‘12 Angry Men’ at the Birmingham Rep theatre. It was a brilliant production, really well staged and well-acted, including the lead role played by Martin Shaw, who has been in many TV shows such as Judge John Deed and Robert Vaughan from the TV show Hustle. The play clearly demonstrated the issues of prejudice, justice and social influence. It was fascinating to see how one standing up for what is right was able to convince all those against him. The students behaved exceptionally and made for a really enjoyable evening, one student even keeping up the fight for healthy schools and eating fruit salad at Intermission! Thank you to all those who attended. Read More
