Silver Duke of Edinburgh Awards

Silver Duke of Edinburgh Awards

Congratulations to eleven of our past pupils who have achieved their Silver Duke of Edinburgh award. Over the past twelve months they have undertaken voluntary work within the local community, development of a skill and improved their physical fitness, trained and worked together to navigate for both training and assessed final expeditions walking distances of over 45k!
The students involved trained in the Yorkshire Dales and completed their final expedition climbing the mountainous terrain of the Lake District.

Kaitlan, Kian, Joand Beker have decided to step up to the prestigious gold level and I’m exceptionally pleased and looking forward to guiding them along this challenging journey!

Again, I would personally like to thank Martyn Wilson and Kate Harvey who kindly give up their time and volunteer to run the Duke of Edinburgh award, I simply cannot thank you enough for everything you do, the time you give and your experience when out on the hill with remote supervision, navigation, generally looking after our students and encouraging them along their expeditions is priceless.

Many thanks and congratulations!

Mr Jon Cudworth – Dofe Coordinator.

Tottington High School is now an academy

Tottington High School is now an academy

On the 1st November, Tottington High School converted to academy status and we are now part of The Shaw Education Trust.

We are focused on improving the outcomes for our pupils, and the support and expertise that Shaw Education Trust can provide us in achieving this is invaluable. We feel that now is the right time for us to join the trust, while being able to maintain a good relationship with the local authority. Joining the trust enables us to broaden horizons and push pupils’ educational landscapes that little bit further, ultimately improving pupils’ life outcomes.
