• A Fantastic Fundraiser by Manns Pharmacy

    Thank you to Manns Pharmacy for their generous donation

    We had a very special visitor to our assembly yesterday, Julie from Manns pharmacy came in to present us with money they have raised from coffee mornings and a raffle.

    Every year the pharmacy raises money towards good causes and this year we have been chosen to receive this towards our fiction library.

    We would like to say a big 'Thank You' to Manns pharmacy and all of those people who donated. The total raised was £337.00!

  • Coffee anyone?

    Torch SCITT Science Trainee, Jen, gives us an insight into her training so far.

    My first few weeks as a Trainee…

    First term teaching is tiring with its fair share of ups and down. Thank god for a super supportive network of SCITT buddies, mentors and teachers from across the subjects. My respect for teachers was already high but now it’s immeasurable. My advice for those thinking of joining the clan, do it whole heartedly, buy a teacher planner and get used to copious amounts of coffee.

  • Remembrance lessons

    All year groups take time to remember

    This week and last week, all year groups have been learning about why we honour the eleventh of November, pupils have taken part in a range of activities, learning about when remembrance day started, what it means today and taking time to remember those who have sacrificed their lives for this country. The whole school took part in a minute's silence on Monday the eleventh. Pupils have been looking at war poetry and designing their own poppies in lessons to honour people and animals who lost their lives in the wars as well as terrorist attacks. Some of the new poppy designs contained messag...

  • Sufiya Ahmed Visits The Learning Lounge

    Author of 'Secrets Of The Henna Girl'

    On Tuesday the 12th of November Toot Hill's Learning Lounge were lucky enough to welcome Sufiya Ahmed through their doors. Sufiya used to work in parliament and got the idea for her book 'Secrets Of the Henna Girl' whist working with victims of forced marriage during a campaign.

    Sufiya ran an author workshop where she discussed the issue of forced marriage and how she went from parliament to being a full-time author. She then got the students to dress in traditional marriage garments so they could act out one of the scenes from the book. In her second workshop, Sufiya set our students th...

    Quote of the week

    There is a voice inside of you, that whispers all day long, I feel this is right for me, or I know that this is wrong.”

    We all have a conscious, listen to yours.

    Always ask yourself, “Is this what my best looks like?”

    Are you giving your best at school?

    That one question alone will change your entire life.
