Government policy expecting the vast majority of students to study either History or Geography and a Modern Foreign Language plus the core subjects leaves little time in the curriculum for the Arts and PE. I am glad to say that just like the Honours lists every year which recognises heavily the contribution to the Arts and Sport of so many people, many of whom are public school educated, we at Tendring Technology College believe that the confidence, eloquence, creativity, intelligence and interpersonal skills generated by    pursuing subjects such as Music, Art, Dance, Drama, Photography and PE is highly valued and recognises the positive impact on the learning of students in all their other subjects. Every week, articles in our   College News celebrate performance and sporting achievements of our students. This week is no different. Come and see ‘Godspell’ at Thorpe campus and have your heart warmed by these wonderful young performers. Then on the 2nd and 3rd of March come to Frinton campus  for "It Snows", a play suitable for older students and adults. 

Congratulations to some of our Sixth Formers who have used their enrichment hour to gain Eco-Schools accreditation for the College. They have conducted a rigorous audit of the College covering areas such as waste recycling, energy and biodiversity. The future of our planet depends on our young people taking action to protect theirs and their children's’ futures.  Well done to them!
