Adcote School celebrates a ‘Mooving’ student achievement

Posted: 11th September 2023

Today, Adcote School celebrated a student achievement of a different kind with a visit from Champion winning Jersey cow ‘Daphne’, owned by new student Phoebe in Year 9, who joined the school just last week.

On learning all about the school’s unique CLEAR learning programme which celebrates student achievement, Phoebe informed new Headteacher, Mrs Victoria Taylor of her success with her Jersey cow ‘Daphne’ at Newport County Show and was invited to bring her in to school.

In 2022, Daphne, now an 18-month old heifer was crowned Champion Jersey cow under Phoebe’s guidance and care, at local Newport County Show. This year, Phoebe again successfully showed Daphne to second place and Daphne is now in calf to produce the next line of County show pedigree progeny.

Phoebe hopes to one day become a cattle farm vet and has arranged her first work experience opportunity with a local farm vet practice for the forthcoming Christmas holidays.

A delighted Mrs Taylor, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Daphne to Adcote School today to celebrate Phoebe’s achievements with her. As an inclusive school located in the heart of a rural community we recognise the importance of embracing local achievements and we look forward to helping Phoebe realise her dream of becoming a farm vet.”

Adcote School is a non-selective, independent day and boarding school in Little Ness, Shrewsbury, where the unique CLEAR learning programme teaches students the core skills of confidence, leadership, engagement, achievement and resilience, supporting them to thrive and contribute to society.
