TMBS Career Champions Physiotherapy

On Thursday 22nd May TMBS welcomed Sarah Scott local Physiotherapist into the school to talk to our students about her career as a Physiotherapist. Sarah Scott is the clinical director and head physiotherapist at The Hinckley Physiotherapy Clinic Ltd.

She works part time for the TAGB Taekwondo team, treating the national squad and also helping to educate the instructors through workshops. She is currently implementing an audit of injuries in this style of martial art. Sarah also acts on a consultancy basis for local rugby teams, working with their sports therapists to help advance their knowledge of sports injuries. Sarah initially trained as a Sports Therapist in 1992, and worked as a sports rehab and injury therapist at a local gym and for Hinckley RFC. This ignited a passion for human movement and function, and she went on to study for a Bsc ( Hons ) in Physiotherapy at Bradford University.

Since 2005, Sarah has worked at this clinic and has built up good relations with several GPs and consultants. Currently, Sarah is working towards increasing awareness of sports injuries in children, and regularly attends courses and seminars to keep up to date with the latest research, so as to provide the best for her patients.

During the school's lunch break Sarah talked to many students about her career as a physiotherapist, setting up her own clinic, life skills she has gained and the different pathways into physiotherapy. Students were able to ask questions and gain essential information to help with upcoming Post 16 option choices.

I am always looking for volunteers to come into school and speak to students about various careers, whether it is in an assembly format, group work or as an informal drop in session. Please contact me at the school for more information on becoming a TMBS Careers Champion.

Many thanks Miss Luker – Careers Advisor – ( )

Army Outreach

On Tuesday 11th of July the Army Outreach Team visited the school providing activities and team building games to 13 of our year 10 students. There was a presentation held in the activity centre focusing on the vast range of careers within the Army and Army life.

Students then went out onto the field to participate in various activities, working together on their team building, leadership and communication skills. The team then stayed for lunch in the canteen providing students with the opportunity to answer any questions about future career paths.

It was a fantastic opportunity for students to learn essential life skills and for those who are interested in careers within the armed forces or police service. It was a fun day and the Outreach Team highly praised our students for their ability to work so well together, their listening skills, politeness and readiness to help others. Well done TMBS!

Sporting Achievements

For most young people, July brings into view the finishing line of the school year as their thoughts turn largely to holidays and relaxation. But for some young people, the qualifying 200 or so who have already proven themselves against a field of over 1400 of their peers, July marks the climax of the athletic year and their thoughts are far from relaxation. The Typhoo National Junior Athletics Championships are the culmination of the EFDS’ (English Federation of Disability Sport) events program. Held at Warwick Athletics Stadium on the 2nd and 3rd of July, the event is a showcase of 12 to 20 year old sporting talent, and is a chance to spot the paralympians of tomorrow.

TMBS is beside itself with pride at the endeavours of our own Harry Tyrell of year 7. This was Harry’s first ever national championships and he left the event heavier by two silver medals, thanks to his splendid performance in the long jump. We couldn’t be more delighted with both his outstanding achievements and the exemplary way he conducted himself at the event, we’re lucky to have such a fine young man and sportsman as an ambassador for the school.

With past champions of the event, such as Aled Davies and Hollie Arnold going on to become world-class athletes, plans are already quietly underway to re-enforce the silverware cabinet in the TMBS reception area. Well done Harry, keep up the fantastic effort and hard work, we are all confident that many more sporting accolades are to follow.

Four young men from TMBS played in the English national schools' golf championship at Woodhall Spa. Frazer Jones, Sam Envis, Fin Stokes and Fin Shorrock. After a strong day the first three succeeded in progressing to the final round, held on July 12th. Against stiff competition the three ranked 13th out of a field of 36 rival teams. Well done boys!


A big thank you to all those students and parents that have bought books from the Scholastic Book Club throughout this school year and/or our Scholastic ½ Christmas Book Fair. Not only have your purchases supported, encouraged and promoted your children’s reading, but the School Library has also benefited from almost £300 worth of free books. Thank you!

Our own doyen of STEM Mrs Brown accompanied 10 of our yr 8 and 9 students on a trip to DMU to attend a Science and technology challenge day. The students participated in 4 workshops including medical diagnostics, robotics, e-fit technology (where Mrs B got to be a criminal!) and car building. The students all had a fantastic time and returned inspired.

TMBS held its own STEM day on the 21st of June, which saw year 5 students from Congerstone, Sheepy Magna and St Peters take part in a range of activities. The students engaged with maths challenges related to codes and maps. Took part in science classes making dyes to test drinking water and spent some time in the workshop building boats.

Onatti Theatre Shipwrecked in France

Earlier this month TMBS played host to the Onatti theatre. Year 6s from our official feeder schools came to take part in a play designed for a KS2 audience, as an introduction to French . The majority of schools sent students and participation from the students was great. The play was called 'Shipwrecked in France', about a boy who gets lost in a dinghy, lands and doesn't know where he is and gets a French girl to help him back to his hotel. It's all about communicating in a fun and accessible way.

Salters Festival of Chemistry

On Thursday 8th June four enthusiastic students from years seven and eight took part in the Salters Festival of Chemistry at the University of Leicester. The day involved competing against 17 other schools within the midlands area by completing a series of challenges and performing experiments in a university environment. During the morning the team took part in a competitive, hands-on, practical activity, “The Salters’ Challenge” – Who is the Prime Suspect? – The challenge involved students using their analytical chemistry skills. In the afternoon, they competed in the “University Challenge”, a practical activity chosen by the University, in which they were required to identify different solutions using practical techniques. The day ended with a presentation, from a few of the lecturers from the university, with many bangs, flashes and colours throughout. Unfortunately, our team did not win any of the major prizes, however, the students really enjoyed the experience of working in a university level science department and their attitude and behaviour throughout was exemplary. Fantastic work, team TMBS!

Year 11 Prom

It was smashing to see all our lovely year 11s letting their hair down and having a well deserved night of fun and festivities at their prom.
