Matty is selected for 2020 European trials

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.

Making tremendous progress over the past couple of years, Matty deserves this recognition and the chance to prove he is ready for this new challenge.

We wish him the very best of luck on the day and we are confident that all his hard work, dedication and determination will pay off. Well done.

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!

 After 36 years of teaching at Titus Salt School (formerly named Salt Grammar School) Jill Pettifor is retiring today, 24 July 2018.

Working together, Nathan Moore, Bailey Waugh and Sam Stefinuti took 3rd place winners in the under 18’s category in the Saltaire Festival Poetry competition.

Uriah Woodhead Building Merchants came into school to offer all the materials required to restore our very own Dragon Boat!

Our Year 7 pupils have undertaken a year-long literacy challenge which started off last July with the Year 6 Transition Summer Reading Challenge. As well as lots and lots of reading, pupils have completed various activities over the academic year such as designing window displays for our Learning Resource Centre, forging ideas for reading nooks around school and creating book marks.

Pupils at TSS took part in this year’s National Writing Day. Creative writing connects people to their own voices, to their homes, their languages and their own stories. Every one of us has stories to tell, memories to recount or secrets to reveal.

The winners of the ‘design a board game piece’ competition, for the Year 7 Opening Minds project on Saltaire and the World, literally got ‘stuck in’ when bringing their designs to life!!

Thomas Pickles, Dan Logan, Joe Murphy and Jay Buchan, were selected to trial for the U13 England Rugby Developing Player Programme (ERDPP). This is an RFU programme that was launched in 2013 to provide a structured package of quality coaching for new and existing players between the ages of 13 and 16. The boys were put forward by school and representatives from Baildon Rugby Club. The gruelling and rigorous selection process took place over the course of three separate sessions over a three month period. The players were assessed in five key areas and were given a score out of 5 for each area.

Eight local primary schools attended our Art IMP (Interactive Media Project) in June. Year 5 pupils came to TSS to take part in a creative workshop with a difference … making sculptural self-portraits from recycled materials! Their sculptures have been covered in Modroc, ready for painting, and will be used as a starting point for their next visit to TSS, when they will be using Photoshop to create a very different digital portrait!
