From March 2018, we will be using ParentMail; a solution that enables parents/carers to benefit from a simpler and more accessible two-way process of communicating. Under our parent & pupil information tab you will find a section on ParentMail where you can watch a short video about what ParentMail is all about.

Local STEM employers and Higher Education establishments visited TSS to offer valuable advice to pupils to help them make better choices on their next steps in education. Our STEM carousel event, in partnership with CE:SET (Centre of Excellence for Science, the Environment and Technology, including Engineering) was held in January. Selected pupils from Year 9 and Year 11 were invited to attend this information, advice and guidance event, outlining STEM career opportunities in the area.

The event showcased local businesses including, Morrison’s Engineering and Manufacturing, Yorkshire Water, Produmax, Curtins, Bradford College and Bradford University. After introductions from the companies each gave advice on the kinds of roles and careers that are available and the qualifications and skills that young people need to be successful in them. Pupils were also given a chance to ask questions.

Year 11 pupil, Lincoln Barraclough said: “I really enjoyed the STEM morning, it was interesting and very informative. I was amazed when Produmax told us they had a 100% retention rate of staff.
