Pupil Achievements

A careers fair is a great opportunity for pupils to meet and seek advice from employers from a variety of industries. On Friday 8 November we held a careers fair in school for our Year 9 and Year 11 pupils; giving them an insight into higher education and employment.

Valuable lessons were learnt at Restart a Heart Day on 16 October; “doing nothing is the worst thing you can do” was just one of the potent messages that came from our Year 7 pupils at the annual event which teaches people life saving skills of CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation).

To celebrate National Writing Day 2019 we held a creative writing workshop with a group Year 9 pupils. Under the guidance of not one, but two professional writers, the pupils enjoyed creating their own list poems and exploring how to plan more detailed and engaging stories. 

For the second year running the whole of our school community got creative at the same time by taking part in National Writing Day. Writing creatively can sometimes be squeezed out of our lives and at Titus Salt we welcome any opportunity to be creative as we know how beneficial it can be to our confidence and well-being - so, sharing in an activity where we all write together about whatever comes into our heads? Let’s do it!
