Torrington’s Got Talent – no auditions on Tuesday

The Great Torrington School Talent Show is always an eagerly awaited event held in the beginning of the summer term. It is a fantastic event that we can celebrate the diverse range of talents of our young people. It may be singing solo, performing as group, dancing, acting, magic tricks or other skills that we have never seen before. We want you to enter and represent you and your house and have a chance of being this year’s TGT winner!

 

Summer has arrived!

The quad area between the Science and Humanities/MFL Corridors will be open at lunchtimes and breaktime from Tuesday 14th May. Please remember to utilise the correct recycling points for any waste.
