Welcome From The Headteacher

I hope this brief glimpse of our school via our website gives you an insight into the life of Tottington High School, our ethos and our vision for all our students. I know that we have so much to be proud of: a consistent record of achievement over a number of years; a varied programme of enrichment and enhancement opportunities for students; excellent links with our community, and a dedicated and talented team of staff who work diligently for the benefit of every student. 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.” (Full report on school and Ofsted websites)

Our commitment to high quality teaching and learning experiences provides the foundation for school and individual success. We recognise the potential of all our students and provide opportunities that challenge their abilities. We also have a large team of support staff who work selflessly to support some of our students who may find some of the demands of academic settings more of a challenge. We offer a full 360 degree level of education, care and support for all our young people. We endeavour to provide a high level of support, guidance and care to enable your child to achieve their potential. We truly are a school where Every Child Matters.

We are very proud of our school and strive daily to give our children the best possible chances of succeeding academically and also ensuring they are ready for their next step. Should you have any unanswered questions about Tottington High School please do not hesitate to contact us. I hope you decide that Tottington High School is the right school for your son/daughter to fulfil their ambitions and aspirations, and I look forward to working with you over the coming years, in partnership.

Mr. B. Duffy
Headteacher

Duke of Edinburgh Silver Final Expedition

Typical. Our final expedition was set to be in the middle of a heatwave, about the only time you don’t want temperatures in the high twenties and blazing sun all day. Luckily Mr Cudworth and our assessor, Pam, agreed to reduce the weight of our rucksacks so we set off with a lightened load across the beautiful Lake District National Park…

Tottington High School Open As Usual Tuesday 26th March

Dear Parents/Carers

The school will be open as usual tomorrow Tuesday 26th March. Damage from the fire today has been limited to a small room which holds some electrical boards. It serves only two rooms which will be out of action tomorrow - the library and room 20, which is an IT suite. The rest of the school is functioning as normal.

Can I thank all parents/carers for their support and understanding as we managed this situation this morning. Fire teams were on site most of the morning and the power was cut off until mid afternoon, so we felt it best to evacuate the school and send children home. Phone lines were down so we were unable to receive any communications from parents/carers. Thank you again for your support.

Huge thanks too to the fire service for their prompt response and professional support for us at school today.

Regards
Mr Duffy
Headteacher
