Pupil Voice

At Shepwell we want pupils be involved in all aspects of the school, we enjoy having their feedback and ideas, as this contributes to the development of new facilities, the uniform and this website!

We run competitions to ask for pupils help with things staff would like to update or change- for example our new school motto ‘Believing is Achieving’, was the outcome of our latest competition.


Pupils are happy to give us feedback about how they feel about school, here are some of their comments:

“Shepwell has changed my life. I spend more time with my family and they now like me being with them”

“Shepwell helped me to be confident. They always listen to me and help me. I’m not scared of school anymore”

“You really did save my life”

“I can’t thank you enough for your encouragement and inspiration. You have changed us all for the better”

“I couldn’t have wished for three better teachers. He loved the lessons and has made fantastic progress in just three weeks”

“The work you do is truly amazing-never give up”

“I can’t believe it’s the end of my time at Shepwell, it’s gone so fast. You’ve all seen me at my worst and at my best but you’ve all been there to support me every step of the way. I couldn’t be more thankful. I’m going to miss you all loads”

“I hated school and never wanted to go. Now my attendance is 90% and I’m very proud of myself and I love school. Thank you Shepwell”

“At Shepwell I’m much more focussed and very proud of myself”

“I really love Shepwell, teachers are nice and helpful and I know I’m making much more progress in lessons”

“I like Shepwell I find mainstream school depressing and this makes me feel poorly again”

“At mainstream I wasn’t getting anywhere, I struggled; teachers didn’t understand, help or care about me. Only one teacher tried to help but at Shepwell everyone helps me”

“Shepwell has given me confidence. I’m really proud of myself for walking into school on my own. My grades have gone down because I missed a lot of school. Shepwell is helping me to catch up and I know I’m doing really well”
