 Welcome to Tor Bridge High
Welcome to Tor Bridge High. We currently have vacancies for EXAMINATION INVIGILATORS please click the Vacancies link for details.
People are being asked to share their views on plans to transform the way library services are delivered in Plymouth.
The Council has produced a draft Plan for Libraries that aims to modernise Plymouth’s library services over the next three years so they better meet the needs of local communities and make better use of resources. This draft plan proposes the closure of 10 libraries including Estover Community Library.
Please visit the Library and complete The Consultation questionnaire to express your concerns over the proposed closure.

Five week British Scientific Expedition: Himalaya 2017 (On behalf of Royal Geographic Society) 

Tor Bridge High student Hannah Smallpage is embarking on an expedition to The Himalayas, right after completing her GCSEs in July.
 
The 70 man expedition comprised of 20 doctors, and scientist leaders as well as 50 young scientist fieldworker expedition members. There will be NO access to internet, mobile phones, television or even music.
 
There will not even be any satellite phone access given the remoteness of the region. Diet will consist of military ration packs.
 
Phase ONE - A mandatory training period of the various pieces of scientific and climbing equipment, and procedures, (such as abseiling, ice axe and crampons, roped teamwork on ice, and crevasse rescue, as well as Fire Allocations. The expedition is comprised of small `teams` known as `fires`. (i.e. a group that shares a communal fire at night.)
 
Phase TWO –Depart London to Delhi on 24th July 2017. Overnight stay at Delhi airport then onward flight to Leh in Ladakh. Transport to the road-head, then expedition will transport equipment and rations on foot to Base Camp area at 4500m.
 
Work will include: glacial influence on weather patterns, isotope studies in the snow, glacial ice and melt-water of the Drang Drung glacier (which provides nearly a billion people with water) as well as botanical studies of the Zanskar valley.
 
We will also be collecting data from the 3rd highest weather station in the world, and involved in media projects in this area. The expedition then flies back to London on 29th August 2017

Our Technology STEM activities continue to gain more momentum in 2017 with our Greenpower team doubling their efforts over the winter to become a major force to be reckoned with in the Formula 24 class, as they embark on a full prototype chassis build this spring.

The team of year 7-12 students aim to build a new car from the ground up using only parts designed and made on site at Tor Bridge.
 
The ambitious build project will take them into the prestigious prototype category, where top cars can achieve very impressive speed and endurance whilst being powered by battery technology and electric motors.

With two years of planning under their belt, the first components are now drawn up using computer aided design, and are being manufactured in the Technology workshops by a small group of dedicated volunteers, aided by our year 12 BTEC Engineering students.

The new car will be raced in June alongside our current kit car.
