Site Closure for Her Majesty's Funeral - Monday 19th
Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
Considering recent events and the announcement of a public holiday for the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we will not be opening on Monday 19th September, in line with DfE guidance.
This will allow individuals, businesses, and other organisations to pay their respects to Her Majesty and commemorate Her reign, while marking the final day of the period of national mourning.
We at TST will be holding a minute’s silence this coming Wednesday morning, giving us and our learners the opportunity to demonstrate our sadness and loss at the passing of the Queen.
May we remind you to cancel transport arrangements for the Monday.
College will be re-opening as normal on the 20th of September.

Veterans Complete 'Striding Out' 30 Mile Challenge
This week, a team of Veterans completed a 30 mile challenge across Dartmoor over two days. Special thanks to all those involved! We couldn't have done it without you.
This Veterans ended the challenge with a great sense of achievement. Determination pulled them through, even over aching feet and sore calves!

Welcome to Battling On
The courage and devotion of our forces is recognised without doubt. However, it has also been acknowledged that some service personnel find it difficult to settle back into civilian life after leaving the forces.
Using eco based interventions, a variety of indoor and outdoor activities and peer camaraderie, Battling On supports military veterans by providing a safe, empathetic and non-judgmental environment. We host a number of activities predominantly designed and led by veterans, operating onsite at Merryhue Farm on Thursdays and Fridays.
Armed Forces Covenant
Batting On commit to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and support the Armed Forces Community. We recognise the value Serving Personnel, Cadets, Veterans, and military families contribute to our business and our country.
