Achievers’ Wall 2017

The Tring School Achievers’ Wall was started five years ago by the then Head Boy, Max Baiden and Head Girl, Jenni Cannon.  The awards recognise Year 13 students for their work within the school and the wider community and over the years it is gradually building up to create a wall as a lasting reminder of the students who did something amazing in their time in Tring Sixth Form.  It is hoped that this will inspire current and future students at Tring School.


On Wednesday 26 April, the following students and their parents gathered by the wall for the presentation of this year’s awards.  Headteacher Mrs Collings gave a brief overview of each student’s achievement before they were congratulated by Janice Donald, Chair of Governors and Sally Kay, Head of 6th Form.  It was a really lovely opportunity to be able to celebrate the wonderful contribution these students have made to Tring School.

Photos of the event will be posted on the Gallery page of the website shortly.

Award Winners will be listed on the Special Awards page of the website shortly.

Swing Band at Aldbury May Day 2017

Well done Tring School Swing Band – a great performance at the Aldbury May Day Fair.

DTHeader

Design & Technology Exhibition

GCSE, A-Level & Level 2 coursework was on display around the D&T rooms to showcase the outstanding work done by the students.  The evening saw certificates for achievement and effort handed out as well as displays of fashion from the textiles pupils.  The event was the brainchild of Deputy Head Girl, Jess Burckhardt who organised the evening as she wanted to celebrate the amazing work done by all the D&T students.  The exhibition received only positive feedback from everyone who attended with one parent saying “It is fantastic to see the diversity of the D & T subjects.  I particularly liked the Textiles fashion show”.

The Year 13 A-Level Product Design class have spent this year designing  and  manufacturing lighting solutions for a local company, Cube Lighting, who specialise in high-end bespoke lighting solutions.  Simon Rozenberg from Cube Lighting came into school for the final presentation of pupil projects and was highly complimentary regarding the designs and products submitted by Tring School students.  In recognition of their exemplary work, Sean Milligan and Toby Andrews, who both received certificates at the D&T Exhibition event, were also presented with an additional gift of a designer lamp from Mr Rozenburg.
