Pupil Achievements

Stemettes Workshop

Eighteen girls from our Year 9 STEM group took part in an inspirational STEM careers event delivered by a company called Stemettes. The Stemettes are an award-winning social enterprise that has worked with almost 45,000 young people across the UK and Europe, their objective is to show that girls do Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths too! They work with young women and girls aged 5 up to 25 and help them make informed decisions on pursuing all manner of STEM related careers.

The session  consisted of two lightning talks from Jo Baptista, a Stemettes alumni, currently studying economics at Oxford University and also Jacinda Fahey who works for G-Research, who are a leading quantitative finance research firm. The talks were really inspirational and helped the Year 9 girls to seriously think about a career in STEM. The group asked some interesting questions about gender stereotypes and which GCSE’s, A level and degree courses they could take to best set them up for the future.

Year 7 pupils got very creative in a fun English session and wanted to share their brilliant work as part of our celebration of National Poetry Day.

Each form collaboratively wrote an ‘I Remember’ poem filled with memories from their long summer break. Click on the links below to see their work.

Congratulations to Year 8 pupils, Katie, Alice and Caitlin, all three girls entered a STEM competition relating to ‘Influential Women in Engineering’ and have received 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize! To commemorate International Women in Engineering Day, Leeds University launched a competition which was opened up to schools that have been taking part in the ‘E for Engineering’ project. Last academic year the project saw a group of high attaining girls visit Leeds University to take part in workshops looking at influential women in Engineering and had an inspirational talk from former head of the women in engineering society. 

This year for National Poetry Day we are being asked to ‘see it like a poet’ and explore the theme of Vision by reading and writing poems. At Titus Salt School this week, through our form group based remote assemblies, we will all be getting inspiration from Karl Nova and his poem ’See through my eyes’

Year 9 pupils have been programming Lego robots in preparation for the FIRST LEGO League; a global robotics competition, tackling modern problems to help pupils to build a better future together. The competition is built around a theme-based challenge where the pupils complete tasks around research, problem solving, coding, and engineering.

On the 75th anniversary of VE day the History department ran a competition for pupils to commemorate the occasion whilst in isolation in their homes. We had over a hundred entries with wonderful bunting, delicious ration cakes, interviews with family members and amazing artwork. It was very difficult to decide upon a winner so the history department chose 4 who will all receive Amazon vouchers.

We are thrilled to announce that Eva Murray was one of the runners up for her story, Mary in the First Story 100 Word Story competition, that can be read here 

This year’s production saw ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ arrive at Titus Salt School! Rehearsals for the classic musical began in October and dedicated pupils showed their acting, dance and musical flair on the stage over three performances. Talented pupils were also involved with the technical and backstage aspects of the production too, including lighting, sound and stage management.

What a start to the Spring Term, two teams bring home Gold! Both Year 7 and Year 8 girls’ athletics teams competed in the recent Bradford Athletics Finals and after a gruelling afternoon of competition, both teams were triumphant and placed top of the leader board. It was a hard competition where they faced strong opposition in the track events, up against some excellent runners. We excelled in the field, with determination and athletic ability and conquered to become the overall winners!

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve been selected as finalist in the Nesta Challenges - Longitude Explorer Prize! Four pupils travelled down to Olympic Park in London to attend a STEM day where they presented their ideas.

Congratulations to our Year 7 Netball team for qualifying to the Bradford Schools Final after winning their preliminary round at Beckfoot. Beating Beckfoot B and St Joseph's to go through.

After hearing of the fire devastation in Australia, Jack, Year 7, who attends the 11th Shipley Scout group at the Moravian Church, Baildon, along with other members of the group, wanted to raise funds to help the people and animals affected by the worst wildfires in decades.

Fourteen pupils from across Year 7 to Year 12 competed in the Bradford Schools Cross-country championship in January. Pupils braved the knee-deep mud of Northcliffe Park, making running quite treacherous yet pupils showed their amazing resilience and pushed on regardless.

Year 7 and Year 8 took part in an interactive roadshow which was both informative and engaging. The presentation given by Matt, Vanessa and Manorma on behalf of BAE Systems, a British multinational defence, security, and aerospace company, the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy.

At TSS we are passionate about STEM and want to encourage and support any pupils that consider a STEM career beyond secondary school education. As part of the “E is for Engineering” University STEM outreach project run by Leeds University, TSS is working collaboratively to help develop this project in the hope to see more girls consider STEM at university level as well as employment. The aim of the project is to educate pupils on STEM careers, giving them different opportunities within STEM during their secondary school life, from Year 7 through to Year 13.
