This week saw over 220 students start their school careers at Tytherington School. The school is oversubscribed in years 7 and 8 for the first time in over a decade. Mr Botwe hosted a special breakfast to ask a group of students about their experience of secondary school so far.
The students spent their first day sorting out their timetables, taking part in teambuilding activities and later started completing their theme for the year “ A Million Dreams”, which is focused on aspirations and being the best you can be. Isabella Judson, formerly from Prestbury Primary School, said “I enjoyed finding out more things about my new friends in my form and I feel I know them a bit better now “. Ben Coldwell , who has come to Tytherington from Parkroyal said “ it was really helpful to have time with my new tutor” and Issac Hudson, from Hollinhey commented on the delicious food at break and lunch “ my favourite is the pizza and chocolate muffins”. Nasrin Hatna, from Parkroyal, said “I play the cornet and I’m looking forward to playing in the Christmas Concert.”
Headteacher, Manny Botwe, said: “We are delighted to be oversubscribed for the first time in a decade. It is a sign that the local community like our approach of providing a well-rounded education for all. As I’ve said time and time again, we are in the business of developing A* people who will make a positive impact in the world. It is really important that the new Year 7 feel really comfortable. We encourage the older students to look after the younger ones and invest in team-building activities for our new starters. We are really excited by what they will achieve.”
