Pupil Achievements

Pupils put on a great show

If you didn’t catch this year's performance of the Little Shop of Horrors, you really did miss a treat! It was fun from start to finish and we saw just how talented our TSS pupils really are. 

Set in downtown Los Angeles in Mr Mushnik’s (Jed Watson) small flower shop, meek flower shop assistant Seymour (Leo Davis) pines for co-worker Audrey (Rosie Ross) and discovers an unusual plant, naming it Audrey II (Emma Kershaw), which feeds only on human flesh and blood. The growing plant attracts a great deal of business for the previously struggling flower shop. After Seymour feeds Audrey's boyfriend, Orin (Alex Bower), to the plant after Orin's accidental death, he must come up with more bodies for the increasingly bloodthirsty plant.

Congratulations to all the cast, crew and band for a fantastic, energetic show with catchy songs, fun characters, and a wild singing plant that kept the audience entertained from beginning to end.

Over 40 pupils from Year 7 and 8 took part in an exciting STEM careers carousel event. The cream of the crop from local STEM related businesses were in attendance.

With a captivated audience, representatives gave advice and guidance, talked about everyday life working in a STEM related role and consulted on the personal qualities STEM employers are looking for.

Congratulations to all our pupils that took part in the Bradford Schools Cross Country Championship on Wednesday 16 January at Northcliffe Park. We had some amazing results from the event which showcased our incredible athletes. Well done.

Year 7 pupils are taking part in book groups in their weekly reading lessons.  Groups of between three and eight pupils are reading a book of their choice: reading together in the lessons, reading more at home and then discussing what they have read back with their peers. The groups are self-run, each one having a leader and deputy-leader to keep track of the group’s activities.

A five-strong, enthusiastic team of Year 9 pupils have worked together to design a garden by entering the Royal Horticultural Society’s Green Plan-it Challenge. The Year 9 team won the overall award for the best design with the judges being impressed by their inspirational sensory garden and their enthusiasm.

2018 was the ‘Year of Engineering’ and every Year 9 pupil had the chance to be an engineer at a STEM focus day in December. Activities including hovercraft building, robotics and making a replica London Eye using paper, which challenged pupils to consider the various stages of the engineering process, from design and prototyping through to construction and testing.

Qualifying for the prestigious 2020 European Wheelchair Basketball trials; Matty, Year 12, continues to impress with his skill and love of the game. Invited to attend the GB u22 Men’s Trial in Sheffield on the 18 December 2018, Matty will fight hard for a place on the team.

Well done to those Year 7 pupils who took up a TSS challenge before starting with us in September; it was nice to see so many enthusiastic pupils getting stuck into our annual reading challenge. This year we also introduced a writing challenge to encourage our new starters to push themselves even further. This proved popular and quite a number of pupils took part in both challenges.

Year 10 GCSE Religious Studies pupils have been gaining insight into the challenges Christians face in a modern secular Britain.

When studying the relationship between Charles I and Parliament what better thing to do than hop on the train and head straight for the capital city? That’s exactly what 28 Sixth Form A level Historians did last week.

Year 11 pupils have been given top tips from the boardroom to ensure they can take the advantage when considering next steps in education and career choices.

Challenging questions were asked of local MP, Mr Philip Davis, during a school workshop on climate change run by charity, Hope for the Future. We invited the Shipley MP into school to discuss issues relating to air pollution, green energy, fuel poverty and divesting in fossil fuels.   

Pupils were presented with a special award at the Midland Hotel on 26 September in recognition for their work on the project SUSOMAD (Stand Up, Speak Out and Make A Difference)

We are proud to announce that we have been successful in our bid to receive the Excellence in STEM Award.

This prestigious award run through the National STEM Centre and the National Science and Media museum was awarded to school to validate the emphasis on STEM within school. What makes this award even more exciting is that we were the first school in West Yorkshire to receive it!
