This morning a very well attended School Council meeting took place during Tutor Time with a rep from each form. The meeting was led by the Head Boy/Girl Team. Discussions are being held as to how to spend the £1,000.00 donation from FoTS. Mr Dobberson shared information about the Time Capsule to celebrate 175 years of Tring School and encouraged the Council to add items to the capsule that will be opened 25 years time. It will be placed in the ground at the end of November. Mr Gibberd spoke about the upcoming plans for the redevelopment of Tring School – the Council members were able to ask questions about the day to day running of the school.
We are a centre of excellence in the use of IT in the Teaching and Learning environment and in conjunction with the University of Hertfordshire we welcomed 25 Chinese teachers who are visiting the UK to gain experiences of education in England. The visitors were very impressed by our students who explained how they use IT during their lessons – they are great ambassadors for our school.
Tring School appears alongside Prime Minister Theresa May in the 2016/17 Parliamentary Review.
Established by former minister The Rt Hon David Curry in 2010, The Parliamentary Review’s September release is now a key fixture in the political calendar.
Tring School features alongside the Prime Minister and a small number of outstanding schools in a document that looks back on the year in schools and Westminster. The main aim of the Review is to showcase best practice as a learning tool to the public and private sector.

Meanwhile, Niamh Lawlor achieved two A*s and two As, Laurie Garner, Nikhil Jha and Michael Turnbull-King each achieved one A* and three As.
In the BTEC qualifications, Harry Sargent attained two Distinction* grades alongside one A* A-level grade. Charlie Barker and Oliver Dimes both achieved three Distinction* grades, Seb Farrow one Distinction* and two Distinctions and Dominic Byrnes achieved three Distinctions.
Tring School’s sixth form students are now moving on to a variety of destinations such as university, apprenticeships, jobs with training or taking a gap year.
Commenting on this year’s results, headteacher Sue Collings said: “We are absolutely delighted for our sixth form students, who have achieved an exceptional set of results this year. These results uphold our strong academic reputation, placing us amongst the top performing sixth forms in Hertfordshire.
“Our students have embraced every learning opportunity during their time with us and their strong results are proof that Tring School is a great place for education. 2017 continues to be an exciting year for the school, and our upcoming redevelopment project will further enhance our learning environment and support future teaching and learning ambitions.
“Many congratulations to all of our students on their fantastic achievements – we wish them all the best as they take their next steps forward. Thanks, as always, must go to our teachers, parents and governors for their crucial support along the way.”
