It's not every day a Bentley pulls up at Tarporley High School and Sixth Form College and a man holding a sword steps out! On Tuesday 6th October 2015 students and staff were treated to a visit by Mr Bill Holroyd CBE DL and Revd. Georgina Watmore (Chaplain to High Sheriff) and Rector of Tarporley. The important visitors were welcomed by Deputy Headteacher Liam Martin and set off on a tour of the whole school guided by Head Boy Matty Davies and Head Girl Lucy Millington (Year 13).

Once students around the school had all experienced a glimpse of our sword-wielding guest, it was time for coffee and cake. Tarporley High School's Lead Learners from English and Modern Foreign Languages, student ambassadors for these subjects, promptly arrived to speak to the Sheriff and Rector about their experiences developing the Curriculum alongside teachers in their favourite subjects. Students were also treated to a potted history of the role of the Sheriff and what the role entails in 2015 with many seizing the opportunity to ask questions.

To finish, key members of the Student Leadership Team delivered a presentation explaining how they are contributing to lots of important work at school. Deputy Headteacher Liam Martin said "It was a pleasure to welcome Mr Bill Holroyd and Revd. Georgina Watmore and I would like to thank them for taking the time to visit our school. They were incredibly adept at putting the students at ease and enjoyed listening to their experiences of school life. Equally, we are extremely proud of the exemplary manner in which our students represented themselves and the school during this visit
