From The Vice Principal.... 

We are delighted to inform you that Tendring Technology College has been selected by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) to become a national teaching school – an important role in raising standards. 

TTC was one of only 200 schools in England to be granted teaching school status in the latest designation round. 

Introduced in 2011, teaching schools are all rated as “outstanding” and mark a shift towards school-centred training. They work with partner schools in an alliance,   including at least one university, to ensure high quality school-led initial teacher training and professional development opportunities for teachers at all stages of their career. They raise standards through school-to-school support,  engage in research and development, and ensure that the most talented school leaders are spotted and supported to become successful Headteachers. 

For all those who have upcoming exams please read the helpful ‘gcsepod’ revision tips that are included in this College News.  Revision is essential in helping achieve   success. 

It has been a great season for our football teams; as I write this the Year 7 are playing in the NEESA football final at The Weston Community Stadium. It will be the turn of Year 10 on Wednesday, Year 8 on Thursday, and Year 9 next week. Well done to all involved and good luck!

Michael Muldoon
Vice Principal
