A message from the Headteacher 

It is with a somewhat nervous anticipation that I sit down to write my first ‘message from the Headteacher’. I am honoured to be in the privileged position of leading what I consider to be the best school, both in Plymouth and beyond.

Greenpower Team Triple Trophies! 

Tor Bridge Technology Greenpower engineering team scored full marks at the recent South West round of the F24 championship at RAF St Mawgan, Newquay where they scooped three major trophies on their way to their fourth year of success at the event.
 
The team took the coveted overall ‘Best Engineered Car’ of the event with their new high performance car “Atom”, which also took an overall podium in third place after a race long battle over second position. The Atom also scored highly in the quickest lap times posting one of the fastest laps of the day due to its super light weight and quality of engineering. The Atom has been completely designed and built in the school workshops this year by a team of dedicated students and staff. A massive thanks to SPOT for helping with achieving our ambitions and making it all possible!

Labour Candidate Sue Dann meets Tor Bridge 6th Form Law students 

On 6th June Labour MP candidate Sue Dann came in to visit the post 16 law students to discuss the Labour election campaign. Students had the opportunity in advance to research what different political parties stood for and to prepare question time style questions for Sue. Sue held a lively and interactive debate with our students covering topics from Labour's stance on national security and trident, international relations, the economy, proposed changes to the benefits system and reducing the voting age to 16. Students in the room had a range of political viewpoints, supporting differing parties. Our students have done a lot of political research and are waiting to see the outcome of the general election.
