School welcomes newcomers 

A Shropshire school has welcomed its new additions as it celebrates a host of scholarships and places at top schools for this year’s leavers.

The Old Hall School in Wellington held the second of two taster sessions for its 2019 Reception class in March. It comes as the school also congratulated its Y6 pupils on winning 32 highly coveted scholarships and awards together with nine places at Shropshire’s grammar schools in Newport.

Head Martin Stott said it was a very exciting time: “We’re so very proud of all our Y6 pupils and now that most have secured their place at senior school, they can really focus on enjoying their remaining time here. They have much to look forward to with a residential trip and a canoeing adventure on the Severn.”

“At the same time, we’re thrilled to be welcoming in our new intake for our taster mornings. We feel it’s important they get lots of chances to get to know us before they officially start in September so we also invite them to events here at school and to our open days. We like to help make it both an exciting and reassuring time for families.”
