Year 7 Football – Accelerated Skills Programme

Student News Archive

Mr Faulkner writes…

This year we are trialling an idea to really push some of the talented sports people in our school. At the moment it is just for one team in one sport but we are hoping next year to increase the number of sports and teams.

The players take part in 4 football session per week and these include training, Futsal and matches against other schools. They also take part in an academic session which for the September/October half term was a literacy unit. If their academic work was not completed or their behaviour in school was not exemplary then they lost football time. Our first penalty taker was the player who had finished the most books – and he scored!!!

We are working in conjunction with some football clubs and other coaches. On the 4th November the players trained at Bolton Wanderers Lostock Academy for the afternoon which they thoroughly enjoyed.

On a Friday period 5, now they have completed the first unit of Learn to Learn they are receiving some coaching from Lewis Bishop, a former student at the school who is a professional football coach formally of Stoke City, but now working at Blackburn Rovers.

The principle of the scheme is very simple. Students are participating in more sport which should be enjoyable, improving their technical ability, physical fitness and social skills. This in turn will help them to be more focussed in their lessons and help them to become respectful members of the local community.

Year 10- Bury Enterprise challenge winners!

Student News Archive

Congratulations to our Year 10 Business studies students who won the Bury Enterprise challenge last week!

By Miss Seldon

The students had to compete against other Bury schools in a game where they had to sell as many products as they could to a variety of different businesses. At the end of the game, the money they had made was counted up and the student with the highest value won a prize (one of our students!). Overall, our team had the highest value too! I am so proud of them all!

Well done Saffiyah Ahmed, Molly Morgan and Anthony Broad

Ofsted Report – November 2015

Ofsted Report – November 2015

Student News Archive

By Sam Armstead, Head Boy, and Milly Upton, Head Girl

As most of you will know, our school was recently inspected by Ofsted. During their time at our school, they observed a variety of lessons, talked to the caring, committed teachers and the eager, hardworking students. They toured the buildings and commented how the facilities of the school are improving. Once again, they concluded that THS is a “good” school which continues to develop and improve!

Both of us have massively enjoyed the past 5 years at Tottington. The teachers encourage students to be proud of the work we do, and make lessons fun as well as interesting and beneficial. Throughout the years, both of us, as well as many others, have made huge progress both academically and personally, and the safe and caring environment of THS has given us the foundations to become great people.

The two of us are proud of our school because the staff try to bring out the very best of everyone, and show us our full potential and how we can reach it. We’re glad glad to be part of the Student Leadership Team as it has opened many opportunities for us, and made us recognisable and therefore approachable, so we can communicate with everybody around school and represent the student body.
