New Year, New People.
Change is in the air at Devizes School as the school prepares to welcome new head teacher, Mr Bevan. Meanwhile, Miss Marshall has taken the lead as the acting Head.
Miss Marshall, the school’s acting head is a very passionate, inspiring woman as you can probably tell from the interview. We asked her about stepping up to the role of Head Teacher and she said that ‘it just felt right.’ Miss Marshall will be becoming deputy head again when Mr Bevan starts after Easter. Miss Marshall has been an incredible head and the school is very thankful.
Devizes School is excellent. It has amazing scenery as well as inspiring lessons and opportunities. Also, the house system is good. There are pastoral teams for students to talk to as well as get help from and the houses and house points bring some friendly competition to the school. The school has two gyms, 4 halls, access to a sports hall and swimming pool, tennis courts, a stage and a large playing field.
The lessons at the school are fun and interesting. The teachers are all passionate about their subjects and do their best to teach all they can in the most inspiring ways. The school has all kinds of subjects to dive into: Maths, English, History, Geography, Science, Music, Drama, DT, Music, Dance, PSHE, RS, Citizenship and more!
The school offers amazing opportunities for all of the students, from Y7 to sixth form. The trips are amazing, skiing in Italy, performing at Disneyland Paris and visiting Belgium. Also, things closer to home, like the CAPA performances. Music evenings, small shows and big shows, like the recent play, Narnia. After school clubs are very popular, ranging from sport to make-up.
