About Idsall School.
Idsall School is a large 11-18 school set within its own pleasant, extensive campus in Shifnal just a few miles to the south-east of Telford. We have an excellent reputation both for the high quality of our teaching and learning and for our friendly and caring approach.
Our students have a fine reputation for outstanding behaviour and courtesy. Our highly-committed staff team, including teaching and non-teaching staff, put in many extra hours to ensure our students get an excellent education in order that they achieve their very best and become well-rounded citizens.
This year we are celebrating record exam results with our students and parents. 92% of our year 11 students achieved 5 A* - C grades at GCSE. More importantly, 68% of them achieved 5 A*-C including English and Mathematics. Additionally at ‘A’ level students gained record results with an average points score per pupil of 692 points, with 91% of all students gaining at least 3 A Level passes - we heartily congratulate all our students on their achievements.
We offer a wide range of subjects including law, psychology, sociology and accounting. We are particularly proud of the huge number of after-school and extra-curricular activities on offer at the end of the school day. Every week we offer the following and more:
- Football (Girls and Boys)
- Rowing Club
- Duke of Edinburgh Award
- Karate and self-defence
- Cello Lessons
- Show Band
- String Group
- Fitness training in our
state of the art fitness suite
- Rock School
Our recent Ofsted inspection in May 2013 graded all sections of the inspection as GOOD and judged as overall as a GOOD school (our full Ofsted report is available on our website)
This is clearly an exciting place to learn. However, we are not complacent and we are determined to build on our strengths as a specialist sports college and add an international dimension to school life and learning. We intend to work with parents and our local community to ensure that all our students are very well prepared to adapt and succeed as they grow and develop into young adults.
