There is a meeting on Wednesday 5th of February at 7pm in the main hall for parents, carers and students who are going on the Barcelona trip. The meeting should not last more than an hour max and is an opportunity for any questions to be asked, to obtain sizes of pupils for their kit and also any more information that needs to be communicated.
The term dates for academic year 2020-21 are now available on the Term Dates page on our school website which you can view by following the link below:
Two of our year 9 students represented Tottington at the Holocaust Memorial Event last night at the Longfield Suite in Prestwich. Macy W and Paris P were absolutely outstanding in their delivery of their spoken parts and to say that I am extremely proud of them is an understatement.
Paris stood in last minute – literally the day before – for a student who got nervous and felt unable to do it. You would never have known that she hadn’t attended the rehearsals, which have been going on for several months. She volunteered to do this herself.
Macy, was committed, even when she found out that she may have ended up representing our school on her own.
Both these girls are inspirational and are examples of the outstanding students we have at Tottington High School. They were amazing and spoke so confidently in front of approximately 200 people, including the Mayor of Bury, representatives of faith groups and a Holocaust survivor. The event itself was a very fitting tribute with the theme being “Stand Together” against discrimination and genocide across the world.
This year will be the 75th anniversary of the end of the war and the horrific events of the Holocaust. It highlighted the importance of never forgetting what happened and the importance of educating our students about events such as this.

A massive thank you to all students and staff involved in this year’s Christmas end-of-term fund-raising event. Together we raised a whopping £2405 for Cancer Research. Our annual yuletide event attracted students to our Christmas markets (held in the sports hall) where activities included a bouncy assault course, basketball shootout, and face-painting, and a variety of stalls including chocolate tombola and hot dogs. There was also our talent show in the school hall which entertained the audience with a variety of singing, dancing and gymnastic acts. Here’s a selection of photos from the day.
