Our Year 8 girls 7-aside football team (just missing Millie B) were runners up in the Bury Schools Competition last week. In netball, our Key Stage 3 girls teams have been working really hard with their training and have been making great progress at their Wednesday after-school practice. And all this practice really paid off for some of them as both year 7 teams played against Woodhey last Monday and won their first match! Hopefully our year 8 and year 9 teams will perform just as well – more results to follow!
On Friday 7th February 2020, eight of our year 9 students took part in a Hate Crime Ambassador training programme at Bury’s New Kershaw Centre, along with students from several other Bury schools. The students were placed into mixed teams with the other schools and worked really well together. Each team produced some good work around the strands of hate crime (disability, race, religion, transgender identity, sexual orientation) – and also covered stereotyping, prejudice and equality. At the end of the activity the students returned to their own school’s group to work on their final presentation – Tottington High School’s team produced a piece of work on their given topic of religion. All our students got involved and got lots out of the day, and were all a credit to our school.
Massive well done to the staff rounders dream team who beat the Y10s in a close game (50-46) at lunchtime today!
Excellent bowling from both teams (Mrs Hare and Sam W) and great rounders from Mr Healey, Mr Pooley, Mr Rashud and Mr Faulkner!
Thanks to Mrs Barlow for scoring and Miss Greatholder for photography.
Some of our finest athletes triumphed yesterday at the Bury Schools Championships at Bury Athletics Club. Ellie M (pictured) reigned supreme as the champion of the Year 8 and 9 girls’ shot put, and was narrowly beaten to 2nd place in the discus (beaten by only 7cm!).
They had a great day at the athletics championships and, according to PE teacher Mrs Z Carter, were fabulous and a credit to the school. Other results were as follows:
Abigail B – champion of y10 & 11 100m
Chloe B – 2nd place in y10 & 11 girls’ discus
Olivia T -3rd in year 8 & 9 girls’ javelin
Both y10 & y11 girls and y8 & y9 boys got through their heats into the 4x100m relay finals (y8 & y9 boys broke a track record in their heat)
Y10 & y11 girls got the bronze in their final, boys came 4th
Ryan W got an amazing personal best of 2.21 mins in 800m
The girls beat Manchester 20-29 in their first game, with Katie Shimmons, Zoe Parker and Megan Stokes running the game and leading the scoring. Some tough defence and strong rebounds from Ruby, Beth, Chloe, Sam, Jess, Isobel and Georgia ensured the opponents score was kept to a minimum.
This lead the girls to the final against Stockport – where the winner would be named as regional champions. Trinity who were representing Stockport were a strong team with a bench full of scoring threats. Tottington struggled to stop them from scoring in the first quarter and they ran some good fast breaks resulting in Tottington being 15 points down at half time. The girls continued to play strong defence and with some great baskets from Zoe and Katie, the scoring gap closed. However, Trinity stepped it up a gear in the final quarter, and Tottington looked tired – and the game finished 42-23, with Tottington gaining the ‘Regional Runners Up’ title.
Massively proud of the girls for their fantastic performance.
Mrs Z Carter, PE Teacher
The U16 Girls Team were:
Jess Kelly (Y10)
Chloe Chapman (Y10)

Congratulations go to our Year 11 and Year 7 boys’ football teams who this week saw off the competition from a local Bury school and a Manchester grammar school.
In the first round of the English Schools’ Competition, our year 11 squad comfortably beat St Monica’s RC High School 5 goals to 2; and a team of Year 7s from William Hulme Grammar ended up conceding the match following a relentless onslaught from our boys in red and black.
There were goals a-plenty too during a Year 7 friendly against Elton High School, which ended in a closely fought 3 – 3 draw.
A massive well done to all our footy teams for their efforts this week!
