Our Values & Ethos

Why choose Tottington?

Thank you for your interest in Tottington High School. We trust that you will find our school to be a place where you feel your child will flourish. We have a good record of consistently achieving good academic results coupled with personalised support and guidance; we strive to help every student achieve their full potential – culturally, morally, socially, spiritually as well as academically.

Our Mission Statement states:

We pledge, through respectful relationships, to ensure all members of our community are supported in taking responsibility for their own learning, to become ‘well-rounded’ and caring individuals, with the skills, attributes, qualifications and experiences to prepare them for their and our futures.

Excellence through Partnership

We believe very much in our school motto of “Excellence through Partnership”. Thus, we expect our students to get involved in the life and work of the school and to maintain high standards of interpersonal relationships on which these partnerships develop and prosper.

Ofsted (November 2015) stated that our school “continues to be Good” and that…”an air of purposeful learning permeates the school. Pupils want to learn and to do well; they have strong aspirations and ambitions……Good relations between staff and pupils enhance this welcoming, lively and developing school community…….The pupils leave the school as well-rounded individuals with ambition and self-confidence.” (Links to full report below and Ofsted websites)

Our aim at Tottington High School is to develop to the full, the confidence, enthusiasm, abilities and talents of all students. Our team of teachers and support staff is well qualified, experienced and highly industrious. They are fully committed to servicing the needs of our young people. They take great pride in the success of students and relish the opportunity to help shape the future of young people. Students are well cared for and valued as individuals. They have many opportunities to pursue extra-curricular activities and additional learning experiences.  We feel that you will be impressed with the positive ethos and culture of the school. A school which believes ‘every child feels that they matter’ through; Being Safe, Staying Healthy, Enjoying and Achieving, Making a Positive Contribution and (achieving) Economic Well-being through everyday encounters and experiences afforded to them.
