Pupil Achievements

Four, Year 13 students recently took part in the 49th Chemistry Olympiad competition organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

The competition is aimed to stretch and challenge Post-16 Chemistry students by testing their chemical knowledge. Students are awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze on their marks and we are very pleased to announce that both Harriet Frost and Francesca Li received Bronze, Jake Ejraee received a Silver award and Nicole Mitchell a Gold. A fantastic result all round.

Megan Argent, Year 7, Paige Norman and Sophie Watmuff, Year 8 and Catherine Duffy, Year 10, who all attend Saltaire Gym Club, recently, competed in the Yorkshire Schools Gymnastics Competition.

The competition was tough in the U14’s pairs floor routine where Paige and Sophie came 5th out of 13, a really good result. Catherine paired up with Megan in the U19’s category, they had to complete a testing routine of balances; unfortunately they dropped a balance in the final minute however still gained and amazing 4th place!

Titus Salt School students took the plunge and competed for the first time in over a decade in the Bingley Amateur Swimming Club Schools' Gala on Saturday 18 March.  As the final points were announced Titus Salt were in joint 3rd position but narrowly missed the bronze medal as they had achieved fewer first and second places than the other team. The team comprising Year 7 to Year 13 showed immense strength of body and mind and swam brilliantly overcoming those first competition nerves.

Five GCSE students have beaten off stiff national competition to take part in  prestigious summer schools hosted by Russell Group universities across the UK.

The national competition was targeted at high flying Year 11 students who could demonstrate high academic ability, a wide range of skills and a passion for studying STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). 

BBC News School Report gives our students the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience.

With support from BBC staff and partners, teachers help students develop their journalistic skills to become School Reporters.

Kieran Goodall and Thomas Baildon, Year 8, both members of the TSS Fencing club competed in the Yorkshire Youth League last Sunday; both students impressed spectators and came away with three medals between them.

Students celebrated World Book Day by creating their own World Book Week. World Book Day is designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and is marked in over 100 countries around the globe.

Holly Waxman, Year 9 has been selected to represent Great Britain next month in the 7 Nations Youth Diving competition in France. This comes on the back of Holly being ranked 2nd junior diver in the country – and ranked higher than Rio Olympian Lois Toulson  - after competing at the British Diving National Cup in February, a showcase of the best of British diving talent and used as a qualifier for the diving World Cup. 

In January, the school climbing club won the Bradford Schools Climbing Competition at Appleton Academy for the second year running.  TSS entered two teams, Team Denys and Team Titus, made up of Year 7 and 8 students, coming a fantastic first and second place.  It was a great day full of climbing with two elements to the competition. 

On Thursday 19 January, students from Year 10 to 13 received a visit from Holocaust survivor, Rudi Leavor.

Organised by Humanities teacher, Mr Roebuck, Mr Leavor came to school to talk to students that are to travel to Poland in February to visit Auschwitz.  Jewish community leader, Mr Leavor talked about his own experiences; how he and his family left Nazi Germany for Bradford in 1937. His testimony was a powerful reminder of the horrors so many experienced. His talk, followed by a question and answer session enabled students to understand the nature of the Holocaust.

Six A Level Religious Studies students, along with Miss Bennett and Mrs Moon, had the honour of being part of the audience in Sunday morning’s episode of BBC’s Big Questions. The students got the chance to meet host Nicky Campbell, and were given first hand experience of how live TV programmes are produced. After a warm up debate about nuclear weapons, the cameras began rolling and the debate began.

Emily Nar, Year 13 was one of only two UK students chosen to attend the prestigious Mexico ExpoCiencias. Her design of a Robotic Piano Tutor caught the eye of the Arkwright judges from 800 entries. Emily created a working prototype of the mechanism that will teach any novice how to play the piano. Emily named her creation, Melodi – The Robotic Piano Tutor and travelled to Mexico in December with Lead Physics teacher Mr Reid, to showcase her creation to an international panel. Contestants were asked to create their resources in Spanish for the judges.

Employers from a variety of business sectors will visit TSS to offer valuable advice to students to help them make better choices on their next steps in education.

Our Year 7 rugby players showed real promise after their first ever tournament, at Parkside School. Half the boys were new to the sport, never having played before; some team members were even enlisted at the very last minute! Mr Lambley and Mr Redhead were very impressed with the attitude and team spirit and the boys got stuck in and did the school proud.

On Friday 3rd December a group of our Designated Specialist Provision students were invited to take part in the launch event of the Tour De Yorkshire 2017 in Bradford’s City Park.  

16 students joined over 160 cyclists and rode in a large peloton around the mirror pool weaving in between the fountains, each other and even through a tunnel of water jets.  The students showed off their cycling skills with everyone managing to stay (reasonably) dry. 

Stage 3 of Tour De Yorkshire 2017 will start in Bradford and the route includes Saltaire and Hollins Hill before going on towards Ilkley. 

Lots of fun was had by all and we even managed to have a photograph taken with Christian Prudomme, the General Director of the Tour de France!
