What a brilliant Science Ambassador visit at Wales High School! Teamworking and engineering challenges carried out by our Science Ambassadors to mark National Science and Engineering week!

Please park safely and considerately around school


Dear Parents/Carers


Please could I request your serious attention to this issue:

Parking around school can be difficult, especially in the morning rush and at home times. The road outside school is a dangerous place every day because of increasing volumes of traffic, congestion and parking at these busy times. This is an increasingly serious concern for school and for parents. In the crucial interests of our children’s safety and out of respect and consideration for local residents, we ask very earnestly that drivers avoid double parking, dropping off on zig-zag or double yellow lines, parking on pavements and obstructing driveways (even partially). Whenever possible it would be beneficial if children who live in the village could walk to and from school.


Thank you, Sue Oakes, Headteacher.

We Sang our hearts out for the Mayor of Rotherham!


On Friday 22nd September a group of our children were invited to sing for the Mayor of Rotherham at Todwick Church Hall. The children sang beautifully and the Mayor was super impressed! Well done everyone!
