The online booking system for the next parents' evening on May 21st is now open and can be accessed at https://parents-booking.co.uk/tiverton. The evening will once again be open to parents of all students in all year groups.
Information on how to use the online booking system has gone home with students today. Details can also be found in the 'Parents' Evenings' section of this website. If you do not have Internet access or are otherwise unable to use the system, please free to telephone our admin staff on 01884 256655 EXT 203 or 267. They will be happy to book your appointments with you. Alternatively, please ask your child to arrange a slot with their teachers.
In order to allow for movement between rooms parents will be required to leave at least one five minute gap between appointments. Your personal timetable for the evening can be printed out by yourself at home or collected at the school when you arrive. It will help ease queuing considerably if you have printed your personal timetable of appointments before arriving at the school!
Please note that the online booking system will close at midnight on Sunday 19th May. This is essential in order to allow teachers time to prepare for the evening and for our admin staff to prepare accurate booking lists for display outside rooms. We appreciate your understanding in this.
The evening will again be hosted within the main school building with four teachers together in a classroom. We have made some changes to where some subjects are placed which we hope this will ease crowding in corridors somewhat. A map of rooms has been sent home with students today and can also be downloaded here. Room numbers for staff will also be on the booking system.
Additional parking for parents' evenings will be available in the PETROC car parks.
Two teams from THS took part in the Ten Tors Challenge 2013 last weekend and completed a 35 and 45 mile route despite some of the worst conditions that Dartmoor could throw at them.
The teams navigated through fog, heavy rain, strong winds, cold temperatures and swelling rivers. Both teams were delayed at one of the major river crossings which was being managed by the Dartmoor Rescue Group. Despite this delay the teams did very well to make up time and finished at 1557 and 1610 on Sunday in very bad visibility which saw the event organisers extend the cutoff time of 1700 by up to 45 minutes.
Out of the 374 teams that started THS were 2 of the 218 teams to finish the challenge with all six members.
It was a fantastic effort by all twelve students, and huge achievement that will stay with them for years to come.
Brigadier Piers Hankinson, director of Ten Tors, said:
"It's been really tough conditions this year. A lot of teams got disorientated early on. It's not a race, it's a challenge and the conditions out there have been very challenging."
Tiverton High School was represented by:
James Reed, Ryan Clarke, Jess Britton, Dawn Radford, Ed Kitchener, Dan Reed
Tom Waldron, Tom Dalby, Tom Warne, Hannah Kallaway, Becky Britton, Libby Britton
TALENTED youngsters took to the Tiverton Community Arts Theatre stage for one last time last week to showcase their achievements in BTEC drama.
The students held two public performances of Turnaround which celebrated stage skills the pupils have worked on during the BTEC performing arts single award.
The show was staged by 13 pupils of year ten and eleven on Tuesday 30 April and Wednesday 1 May.
Those who took part have been working for over 30 hours on workshop and rehearsal technique skills.
Drama teacher Angie Timms said: "This course combines two years of work into one so they are working in a very pressurised environment, and the students haven't always found performing arts a subject that they find easy.
"They have risen to the challenge and I have been quite shocked by how wonderful they are - they are amazing.
"I hope they learn that they can be independent with their learning, and that working as part of team you can produce something that everyone can be proud of."
