📖 Michael Morpurgo visit to Shebbear College 📖 Last weekend we hosted the Methodist Independent Schools Trust conference. There are now nineteen schools in the group and the delegates were delighted to visit Shebbear. They were also treated to enchanting talks in Lake Chapel by two of Devon’s finest storytellers - Shebbear’s very own Ted Lott and the wonderful Michael Morpurgo. Having read one of his books to the assembled mass Michael promptly signed it and gave it to Head Girl Lucy Taylor. #ShebbearCollege #MichaelMorpurgo #WarHorse #MIST

🎼 Well done! Gold Award for Music 🎼 The addition of our new building dedicated to teaching music has proved a great success for our talented musicians as we have once again been awarded the Incorporated Society of Musicians Gold Certificate. More than 20% of all our GCSE students achieved an A* to C in GCSE music, putting the school in the top 76 schools in England. Deborah Annetts, Chief Executive of the ISM - the professional body for musicians - congratulated the school, saying ‘We are delighted to recognise Shebbear College’s achievement in music and celebrate the commitment to music education shown by the school in their high uptake and high achievement of pupils. Music is a valuable subject, it brings value in itself to pupils as well as supporting achievement in other subjects. Music also opens doors and generates educational opportunities for pupils from all backgrounds. We are delighted that Shebbear College values music within their school curriculum and as the professional body for musicians and a subject association for music education, we are delighted to recognise this high level of achievement with this certificate.’ The certificate is awarded by the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM) and the ISM Trust (www.ismtrust.org) Local families are invited to visit our school, including the Music Centre, on our Open Day on Bank Holiday Monday 1st May, to include our Spring Fair at 1.45pm and our May Day Concert at 4.00pm. #ISMMusicCert #ShebbearCollege #WeLoveMusic
