I was wondering if anybody has a son from Worcs/ Malvern area going to STR?

Looking for DS to make new friends before he starts.

Hi,

I can't help you with a child in your area stating this year but can reassure. My DS started at STRS last September. He knew one other child but wasn't particularly friends with him. And he and us were anxious about the change.

However the school is awesome at making the boys feel welcome and runs a totally epic induction programme. He has made loads of mates and is very happy and literally thriving at the school. And out of school he meets up with friends regularly. :D

The faculty are brilliant: really focused on both pastoral care, creating citizens as well as academic outcomes. My DS was one of the ones welcoming others at the recent fitting evening and from the little he has told me and DH he raved about the school as well as advising parents on how many pairs of rugby socks to but!?!. And he is not unique in terms of loving the school and being very happy there.

It may only be words at this stage but I am sure your DS will make friends quickly and settle in. It is scary but I suspect before long you'll be thinking that the taxis service to visit new friends and undertake the new school activities is taking over your life! But in a good way.

HTH

It's good to hear from a parent who has been through it. DS came away from the uniform meeting feeling much happier and even quote "excited". The boy who spoke to us was a great help as DS could identify with somebody his own age and he really did put him at ease. All the students and staff came across as very friendly and it was a very positive evening for us.

Thanks for your post.

Dear tpstps,
I just wondered whether your child did end up attending STRS because our DS has been offered a place starting September 2015 and we are looking to interface with anyone living in the Malvern area who might be interested in lift-sharing arrangements or even just chatting about your experience of the school,
Best regards,
Lili
