A Word from the Head

Jo ConwayFrom the Head

Congratulations to many of our UVI pupils who are securing UCAS offers at first choice universities and especially to Lizzy who gained ten top grade 9s in her GCSEs at Shebbear College 18 months ago and this week, Lizzy has been offered a conditional offer to study Theology at her chosen College at Oxford. 
This week 5th form pupils have enjoyed developing their debating skills on the topic of ‘mobile phone use and learning’ and Mr Kirby and I have enjoyed meeting with current parents overseas. It was wonderful to hear how much our sense of community, our academic rigour and our personalised approach to learning is valued by our overseas parents. It is so important to us that our boarding pupils feel that Shebbear is a ‘home from home’.
