  • Competition for 'Visions of a world after COVID-19'

    Published 30/06/20

    Dear Students,

    'What’s your vision for the world after coronavirus?'

    Put your thinking caps on and enter this exciting competition being run by 'opendemocracy'. Enter a photo, video or written entry in answer to the above question, to be in with the chance of winning some fantastic prizes:

    "The grand prize includes £200 in book vouchers and a bespoke training opportunity with either open Democracy or UCL that may take the form of a mini-fellowship, work experience, or placement in line with the winner’s area of interest. The People’s Choice winner will receive £100 in book vouchers and runners-up will receive £50 in book vouchers" (openDemocracy)

    The competition is open to anyone age 14+, but I would particularly like to encourage entries from our current year 10 and 12 students. You can find details below and on ShowMyHomework of how this competition could be of particular interest and use to students in these year groups.

    As well as entering the 'openDemocracy' competition via their website:, I would also ask you to email your entries to for submission into an internally judged school competition. The deadline for entries is Friday 10th July.

    Good Luck everyone (I know how innovative you all are!), and I look forward to receiving your entries.

    Mrs V. McMahon

  • Young Enterprise Shropshire - Best KS4 School Award!

    Published 04/06/20

    Congratulations as once again the students at Idsall have proved themselves to be budding future entrepreneurs. I'm sure that you'll all agree that the stall looks amazing!

    The students, after attending the judged Trade Fayre days, had to produce a recorded YouTube presentation in only a couple of days before lock-down arrived. To add to this, they then had to write a report without any face to face help or guidance from anybody.

    So, an amazing achievement by Cameron, Rebecca, Emma, Sienna, Megan, Heather and Kaitlin and something for us and them to be proud of (especially under these difficult circumstances).  

    Mr D. Thomas.
