We are very proud to have been judged ‘highly commended’ in a national Outstanding School/ College of the year award.
The award is presented by Pearson - a national examination Awarding Body – to acknowledge and celebrate excellence amongst schools and colleges that deliver the highest quality courses.
Over 800 nominations from across the UK were received by Pearson. In the final judging, Titus Salt School was ‘pipped at the post’ but the panel awarded our school the “Highly commended” prize as a result of:
- consistently high standards of teaching and learning;
- a relentless focus on high academic standards and a strong sense of inclusion.
- results being in the top 10% nationally; and
- for several years every single student has left year 11 and Sixth Form and progressed to further education, University or employment with training.
15 July 2015
We have had an incredibly busy and successful time in school over the last two weeks with our KS3 Awards Evening, New Parents Evening, Personal Development Day 3, Salts Got Talent, Sports Day, Year 10 English Study Day and Sports Award Evening which are in addition to ensuring success in the classroom as we come to the end of another academic year of drive and improvement.
KS3 Awards Evening
Our new format KS3 Awards Evening proved to be very successful with all students receiving a personalised, hand-written card alongside their award, from the members of staff who made the nominations to students. The Main Hall was full of happy students and proud parents and equally proud members of staff; such evenings are a wonderful testament to the effective relationships we have between students, staff and parents. I felt very proud as headteacher to share in the achievements of our students across all subjects as acknowledgement of dedication and hard work in studying and making the commitment to learning. Thanks to staff for their organisation in making the evening run so smoothly, especially Mrs Devine.
New Parents’ Evening
This was another very successful evening which had our Main Hall full of parents and students getting ready for that next step and preparing to start secondary school in September. As I said in my presentation, it is always fantastic to see so many parents, some of whom already have children at the school and for some it is the beginning of their journey with us. In September 2014 we had a fantastic response at our annual Open Evening with a significant number of applications which means we are over-subscribed for September 2015; this is very pleasing for us but I know will be disappointing for those parents and children who had hoped to be able to join us in September. I wish to give my thanks to all those parents and students who continue to support us and thanks to all our staff who make transition such a smooth running success.
Welcome to Titus Salt School
Our four key values are: together, resilient, ambitious and caring.
Our students continue to make me proud and I am overwhelmed by their skills, enthusiasm, drive and commitment – qualities that make our school a special place. My thanks also go to our staff who share in the school’s vision and ensure our values are at the forefront of what we do every day.
We are an 11-18 mixed comprehensive school that is extremely popular and oversubscribed. We moved into our new school building in September 2008 and have outstanding facilities and a state of the art learning environment.
Ofsted 2014 said;
“The behaviour of students is good. In the large majority of lessons they are keen to learn, follow the instructions of their teachers and ask interesting questions to support their learning. These aspects help lessons to flow smoothly and support good learning.”
“The curriculum offers a good range of academic and vocational courses and there is a focus on the development of reading and literacy skills.”
