Pupils offered advice on
future pathways

The future started to come into focus at our latest Parents’ Evening as Year 10 pupils, parents and carers had the opportunity to find out about Post-16 options.

Year 10 pupils and their parents and carers were able to ask questions of a panel of representatives from local universities and charitable organisations. Some fantastic conversations took place, with pupils excited about their options after Year 11 and parents keen to find out more about apprenticeships, student finance and UCAS.

The school's Higher Education Progression Officer, Ms Kennedy, said, "It was wonderful to see so many people engaging with the panel and having productive conversations about the future. This initial mini careers fair highlighted those areas that most interest the young people and their families, and this will allow us to target them with relevant information at future events." 

Ms Kennedy's role is to ensure pupils and parents are fully informed of their Post-16 and Post-18 options. She works in partnership with Go Higher West Yorkshire and is funded by the National Collaborative Outreach Programme, an Office for Students initiative aimed at encouraging more pupils to consider higher education where appropriate.

This small event was a taste of things to come, with a larger 'Future Pathways' evening planned for Year 10 pupils and their families in July. Further details will be sent to you shortly and we look forward to seeing you there.

Thanks for their support go to: Go Higher West Yorkshire; The University of Bradford; The University of Leeds; The University of Law, Leeds; Appris; and Ahead Partnership.

Please contact Ms Kennedy at KED@titussaltschool.co.uk or follow her on Twitter @SKennedyGHWY for updates on higher education, apprenticeship and career opportunities.

    • KS4 Performance Information

      We are delighted with our headline figure of 57.5% A* to C including English and Maths grades 9 to 4 which gives the best like for like comparison of KS4 examination results at this current time; it is our best result which has been steadily improving over the last four years. Our pupils should be exceedingly proud of their achievements; we have a 100% pass rate of pupils gaining at least 1A* to G / 9 to 1  grade; our “Basics” measure has increased to 60% with 12.8% of passes in both English and Maths at the new high level of grades 7 to 9 with 1.6% at grade 9. In recent years we have had a focus on English and with the removal of Controlled Assessments we have developed key skills and knowledge in both English Language and Literature; both subjects have increased outcomes with English Language moving from 61% to 67% and English Literature improving from 56% to 73% which when combined gives the “Best English” performance measure of 77%. We also had strong performances in the STEM subjects of Science including Computer Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths as well as in the EBacc subjects which at 27% is likely to be above the national average once again. We have had some stunning individual performances with 52% of pupils attaining 8 or more A* to C and 9 to 4 grades; 45 pupils gained at least 1 grade at A* with 11 of them also gaining at least 1 grade 9. We are looking forward to welcoming many of our pupils back into our Sixth Form in September and we wish all our students the very best in their future choices.
