Year 7 Students Re-design Union Flag


Our Year 7 students have recently produced some excellent Geography homework re-designing the Union flag to accompany the Welsh flag.

Humanities teacher, Mr Davies, said: “I was very impressed with our students’ level of work, it was evident that they had put a lot of time and effort in to the designs. They produced superb paper and textile homework. There was especially strong work from Liam Hartill, Samantha Cooper, Will Bickle, Felix Pugh, and Laura Harris.”

Here is a picture of some notable pieces of work from Madison Jones (canvas design), Jemima Taylor (stitched design), and Lottie Titley (flag pole design). Well done everyone.

Kinver student’s Amazing Pop Art


Year 8 student Oscar McConnell has produced an excellent homework project based on pop art. Can you guess how many faces he has hidden?

Well done Oscar!

Movember at Kinver High


Movember has returned to Kinver High and quite a few male members of staff are taking part. It has become quite competitive!

All money raised will go to charity to fund ground breaking work in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

Year 7 student’s WWI Diorama


On today, Remembrance Day, we thought that we would share this amazing piece of homework.

Before half term a group of Year 7 students were asked by English teacher, Mrs Wilkes, to reproduce a line from their favourite war poem. There were a lot of thought-provoking recreations, however, Lottie Wright’s diorama of “Dulce et decorum est” by Wilfred Owen was amazing.

One of the most admired poets of World War I, Wilfred Owen wrote the poem following his experiences fighting in the trenches in northern France during World War I. It was published posthumously in 1920. This diorama, which Lottie worked on throughout half term, perfectly depicts the narrative from the poem.

Year 7 Textile Puglies


Our Year 7 Textile students have just completed a module where they created a ‘Pugly’. Puglies are fun, ugly dolls which allow a student’s creativity to run wild.

Textiles teacher, Mrs Barry, said: “I am delighted with the results. Many of our students have never done textiles before, even threading a needle was new to them. They should all be very proud of their puglies.”

Coalbrookdale History Visit


Last Friday our Year 11 History students visited Coalbrookdale. They were able to visit a number of key sites within the towns of both Coalbrookdale and Ironbridge in order to help them prepare for their Local Site Study GCSE exam in History.

The day allowed them to have a greater appreciation of the environments created by the Darby family, as well as gaining a deeper understanding of the significance of Coalbrookdale in regards to shaping the world we live in today.

History teacher, Mr Fox, said: “Our students represented the school wonderfully. We were very proud of both their conduct and the way they approached the different tasks that they were set for each of the 14 different sites that we visited throughout the day. Hopefully the work conducted on this trip goes some way towards helping them with their summer examinations, and also continuing the excellent successes of the History department here at Kinver High School.”

Rugby Win against Prince Henry’s


Congratulations to our Invictus Rugby team who played brilliantly against Prince Henry’s of Evesham yesterday and won 36-0.

Head of PE, Mr Wilkes, said: “Prince Henry’s High School are traditionally a very good rugby school and the last time we played them we lost 50-0. We were 31-0 up at half time and cruising so I made a few changes to even the game up. During the second half we took a bit of a battering but managed to stand our ground and keep a clean sheet. This gave us our second clean sheet in a row, which is quite unheard of in the rugby world.

“The lads have done really well this year and are making a crazy amount of progress in terms of their ability and their attitude. The Year 11 boys have stepped up and really held their own.”

Well done to everyone who played!
