Pupil Achievements

Taste of Spanish life for TSS pupils

Pupils experienced Spanish culture first hand over May half term whilst visiting Madrid. The educational residential trip is organised to encourage our language pupils to use and practise their Spanish speaking skills whilst experiencing the culture of Spain. Lots of activities were planned over the 5 day trip, including a visit to Santiago Bernabeu football stadium, El Retiro park; one of the largest parks in the city. Pupils viewed the painting ‘Guernica’ by Picasso in the Reina Sofia Museum. Royalist fans took in the sights of the Royal Palace and our historians enjoyed a visit to the Temple of Debod, an ancient Egyptian temple that was dismantled and rebuilt in Madrid.

By night, pupils had time to unwind and have fun; including Hard Rock Café followed by bowling and another was spent eating churros at the famous San Ginés Chocolatería. Pupils made the most of meal times and especially enjoyed the Spanish breakfast with fresh Spanish Tortilla and Pan con Tomate available every morning. Pupils impressed the locals with their language fluidity at meal times and even tried really hard to use their Spanish whilst enjoying a shopping trip in the city centre.

Trip leader and Spanish teacher Miss Milnes said: “We had a really great time; the pupils thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was obvious the pupils had worked hard this year when we saw their language skills in action, they were very impressive. The hostel was complimentary about our impeccable behaviour which is always a nice thing to hear.”

We are very proud to announce we have been awarded the Bronze Eco-Schools award. Diligent pupils and staff members of the Eco club have worked tremendously hard since October, when the club was first initiated. The Eco-Schools organisation that awarded us with our Bronze status is a global programme empowering children to drive change and improve their environmental awareness, engaging millions of children across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme in the world.

Following the success of last year’s staff team TSS has decided to enter a youth team in to the Dragon Boat Festival on 22-24 June. Roberts Park will once again be filled with thrashing paddles; with the youth event on the Friday and our two staff teams, Titus’ Titanic Titans and Salt’s Sinking Sailors on the Saturday. All teams are raising money for Cancer Support Yorkshire.

To support the science curriculum Year 10 pupils have taken part in the Biology Challenge hosted by the Royal Society of Biology.

This national annual competition involving many schools across the country allowed pupils the opportunity to show their understanding of science both within and beyond the curriculum. The results of the online challenge have been published and many pupils received commendations for their excellent results.

To finish off an amazing year of results for our dedicated pupils at climbing club, Mr Stewart organised a trip to Doe Park. Doe Park is a specialist centre for outdoor activities and education, situated on Doe Park reservoir in Denholme.

Year 12 Biology learners were treated to a day of Biological Sciences at Leeds University. Learners gained an undergraduate level experience, working in university labs to solve real world problems.

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.

Congratulations to Year 12 learners, Elias McLaughlan, Molly Wilkinson and Kieran Lester for taking first place in the recent Royal Society of Chemistry Analyst Competition at Bradford University on 21 March.

Titus Salt School pupils took the plunge for the second consecutive year and competed in the Bingley Amateur Swimming Club Schools' Gala in March. Last year team TSS narrowly missed out on the Bronze medal; but not this year, the team swam tremendously and very deservingly clinched bronze position.

Year 10 pupil, Ella Curtis, has been picked to take part in next year’s Special Olympics. Ella, is joining as a member of Great Britain’s cycling team; an amazing achievement.
