Bishops High School Hereford - Autumn Term Successes

Hereford Voice

Recommended Posts

As the Autumn term draws to a close and we prepare for the Christmas break, Bishops are looking back on a fantastic term of successes and achievements for our students. 

Year 11 student Shania has been selected to represent her country and play for Team GB at the Junior Roller Derby World Cup in Valence, France in July next year.
Shania has been roller skating since she was 5, Roller Derby training since she was 8 and playing competitive Roller Derby since she was 10.
This is a fantastic achievement and we wish Shania and the rest of her team every success in the World Cup next year.


Bishops has also continued to participate in Pupils 2 Parliament, ably led by Dr Roger Morgan OBE. P2P offers students the opportunity to start to get involved in decision-making in Westminster. We have contributed towards debates as diverse as Artificial Intelligence, maritime shipping laws and protecting endangered species. This term we have participated in a rapid response survey about participation in sports and got mentioned in Parliament!

Bishops was again named in Parliament – the Hansard record for the Westminster Hall debate on Wednesday 9th November reads:

“I also want to thank all the students from the Bishop of Hereford’s Bluecoat School for participating in the process and feeding back to this debate”

Two of the Bishops students who did that survey were then directly quoted in Parliament, and their words are now recorded for all time in the Hansard record of the proceedings of the UK Parliament. The two students’ quotes used in Parliament are:

“Let girls participate in all sports at school” & “I want to do the same sports as the boys – if we dance, so should they. And if they get rugby, so should we”.


Year 9 student Toby was recently chosen as the banner bearer for the remembrance service in Hereford in November. He did a fantastic job along with all of the Air Cadets squadron.

Toby has been working really hard during his time at the Air Cadets and been taking part in exciting challenges such as flying a motorised glider. He was also made Corporal within a year.


Another Year 9 student – Jude, recently took place in a full weekend swimming competition with City of Hereford Swimming Club competing against swimmers from his category and from other clubs around the country.

Jude swam in ten races over two days and achieved nine medals (two gold, four silver, three bronze) and got a trophy for best boy in his age category. He achieved six PBs.

Jude has another competition in December in Bromsgrove which we wish him continued success in.


Meanwhile the Bishops KS4 boys basketball team have been celebrating ongoing successes. They recently travelled to Gloucester to face Gloucester Saxons u16s and given that Saxons play in the national basketball league, Bishops triumphed with an awesome and comfortable 15-point win. There were notable performances from Will, Bodhi, Henry, Jacob and Onur. Further victory was achieved in the match as well against Wigmore High School. 


Finally, six Year 9 students took part in the Maths Picnic held at Lucton school. The event is a fun educational challenge with problem-solving tests and teamwork skills.

Our talented and competitive teams came 1st and 3rd out of 23 teams competing from a variety of schools across the county.
