Pupil Achievements

Year 11 pupil Matthew Alred sailed in this year’s Topper World Championships in France. Sailing in the five day event, Matthew got off to a great start thanks to an exciting opening ceremony in Brittany. Matthew began racing five years ago and to achieve the right to sail with the Bronze fleet after such a short length of time is an amazing accomplishment. Matthew competed in three races per day, the majority going well, he made some great progress. One race didn’t quite go to plan when his mainsheet came undone; this meant Matthew was whiskied out of that particular race but he remained confident and carried on working hard to recover.

Matthew said: “After a week of sailing I was so tired but I loved every moment. I was extremely happy with some of my results and I achieved most of my goals. Unfortunately I didn’t get into silver fleet but I am very happy with my position in bronze fleet. I’m looking forward to competing again very soon.”

The STEM subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths continues to grow in popularity at TSS and with this in mind STEM Leader, Stuart Green gave our Year 8 pupils a task to create a new logo to represent the four subjects now they are inter-linked. Stuart Green said: “STEM is key to raising both standards and ambitions by bringing together a range of skills, disciplines and learning. Many of our pupils pursue STEM at University, Further Education or through work including apprenticeships. Our commitment to STEM helps our pupils prepare for their next steps and I wanted to give STEM a new look and identity within the school community.”

Matthew Wilson, Year 13, Rhea Southcottt, Year 12 and Matty Wilson, Year 11 all competed in the recent School Games in Loughborough.

Out of the 35, 16 were selected to compete in a second trial at Woodhouse Grove; both boys showcased their skills and were very excited to be selected for the final squad.

Roberts Park was filled with thrashing paddles again for this year’s popular Dragon Boat Festival. Forty one teams took part, including our very own team of staff, the Titus’ Titanic Titans. The team made their debut, happy to take part for fun to raise money for a good cause, who could have known they would beat off the likes of the Army, Police and Fire Service! Achieving the third fastest time of the day and 2nd position overall the team were elated and have relished in the praise and recognition.

Titus Salt School is delighted to announce that for the sixth successive year, each pupil that left us at the end of Year 11 or Sixth Form studies has progressed to a high quality destination.  We are the only school in Bradford to have achieved this.

0% NEET means that no pupil has become ‘Not in Education, Employment or Training’ and is one indicator of how well a school prepares its pupils for further learning, work and training. 

Sixth Form pupil James Weedon travelled to London in April to experience what life could be like in the film industry.  The media student applied to the National Youth Film Academy for this once in a lifetime opportunity to spend two weeks in the capital with likeminded people doing the thing he loves most, film making. James submitted a portfolio of his best work and then underwent a gruelling interview to successfully take on the role of director.
