Mr Craven, Head of Mathematics said: "Daniel is committed to his maths and we are very proud of what he has accomplished."

 

 

We recently took three teams to Tong School to take part in an Orienteering event. Over twenty teams took part in this exciting outdoor adventure sport. Teams from seven different schools navigated between checkpoints following their maps using skill and having fun trying to find the best way to go in the quickest time.

On Wednesday 30 March, a group of Year 7 and 8 pupils took part in the Top-Secret Exhibition at The Science and Media Museum in Bradford.

A group of eleven dancers across Year 9, 10, 11 and 13 had the honour and privilege to perform an original contemporary ensemble piece at Phoenix Dance theatre in Leeds.

On Thursday 3 March our Year 13 BTEC Business students heard from Peter Bainbridge, Export Advisor at Chamber International. The presentation gave them information to help them understand the role that international trade plays in the success of UK businesses and about how international trade can open a world of career opportunities.

Congratulations to Laura, Year 12, who has been awarded an Arkwright Engineering Scholarship. This very prestigious award is granted to hard-working students, supporting them through their A levels or equivalent qualifications. Every Scholarship is sponsored by a commercial company, university, professional institution, armed service or government organisation. This means that support is offered in various different ways, valuable hands-on work experience, support for curriculum projects and a personal mentor who can help with aspects of the student’s studies and career planning.

Exploring respect and relationships online

Pupils have been taking part in a range of different activities to help them understand the important of respecting their peers online, building positive relationships but also knowing how to identify and deal with issues or concerns in the online world.

After competing for the first time in two years, Seth, Year 12 gained a podium finish, with brother Ollie, Year 10, gaining 5th place in a regional trampoline competition which took place in December.

Today, we held a Christmas Jumper Day to help raise awareness of local families in crisis. Pupils were invited to wear a Christmas jumper to school in return for a donation to our local foodbank. Bradford North Foodbank provides emergency food to people that need it in our local area.

Mr Trusselle, Senior Leader Behaviour and Attitudes said; “The amount of food our pupils have donated is outstanding! We wanted to help families that are less fortunate than others and raise this awareness amongst our school community. We are very proud of what our pupils have achieved."

By programming a Lego robot to complete challenges alongside conducting a research project, Titus Salt School’s Lego Robotics Club hope to impress a judging panel of local industry experts with their creative and innovative solutions to transportations biggest challenges.

Titus Salt School offered a two week summer school programme to Year 6 pupils joining us in September 2021. An exciting programme was put together and pupils were involved in a variety of activities based around the theme of the Olympics. Each day began with numeracy and literacy sessions before pupils had the opportunity to explore different subjects. Pupils took part in illustration storytelling, printing, design technology, humanities, performing arts, sports, cooking and nutrition and wellbeing.

In June, 20 Year 9 pupils took part in an Engineering day hosted by a company called SmallPiece Trust who deliver exciting STEM related events for secondary school pupils. The pupils who took part were ones that have chosen GCSE Engineering as an option and will begin lessons when they return to school in the Autumn term. The theme for the day was Aircrafts and the pupils would spend all day being aeronautical engineers, designing and building their own gliders.

This is the fourth year running that our school community has celebrated National Writing Day which meant stopping whatever we were doing at 11:30pm and getting creative!

Mr Green, Leader of STEM at TSS was approached by the Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering (AME) and the Career and Technical Education (CTE) board of directors and was asked to carry out some research into the current  issue of, the lack of females taking STEM related subjects (D&T, Engineering, Computer Science, Physics and Maths) at GCSE and A level. Mr Green carried out two surveys, one with pupils and one with parents which gave an insight into why there is such a low uptake by girls. To further concrete his evidence Mr Green filmed a question and answer session with five Year 11 girls which was presented to over fifteen engineering and manufacturing businesses.

Running for the second year at TSS the ‘E is for Engineering’ project, run as part of the Universities STEM outreach programme, which is to encourage more females to consider a career in Engineering, delivered two workshops to our Year 7 and Year 8 girls.
