Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported, attended and helped at all the events in December. The children had a great time at the Christmas Fairs and discos and because of the kind donations from you and local businesses the raffle prizes were great. With everyones continued efforts and support we made an amazing £2000 over the 3 events.With the funding for Stockport Schools and Tithe Barn School in particular being some of the lowest funded schools in the country, our school desperately needs this extra income that you kindly provide from supporting these events. We will keep you updated on how this money is spent to help our children’s learning.
We would like to thank all the local businesses who supported us with Raffle prizes, if you visit any of these places please say thanks. We hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and hope 2016 is a fabulous year.

The staff, governors and children at Tithe Barn received a letter last week from the Minister of School Reform, Nick Gibb MP. Mr Gibb congratulated the school on its 2015 Year 1 Phonics results as being within the top 5% of schools in the country. Tithe Barn has consistently achieved very high results in the phonics test and the minister wanted to convey his congratulations to all those involved.
Tithe Barn was mentioned in Parliament last week during the debate on fairer funding for schools. Stockport MP Ann Coffey contrasted the different levels of funding per pupil in Stockport and made the case for fairer funding by highlighting the example of Tithe Barn. Stockport is one of the lowest funded authorities in the country, with Tithe Barn being one of the lowest funded in Stockport.
Just to say a huge thank you to everyone for making the family festival such a wonderful event!! It really was a fantastic day. Great music, great food and drink, great crafts and fun but most of all a great community. We raised a brilliant amount of money and had lots of fun nearly £2300 to be spent on the special garden and outdoor learning. So thank you to all who helped and supported this event.
We are planning this years Family Festival Day for Saturday 26th September from 4 pm till 8pm.
Last Year was a brilliant fun event , great music, delicious home cooked food with woodland fun and crafts. Here are some of the photos for those who didn’t get a chance to come along.

We already have some great bands lined up including Matt Wolff, our very own Candy Cactus, Deepak will be getting everyone dancing with his amazing Bhangra drumming, The Quinns and much more so watch this space for more info… Look at FOTB events on this website.

The team opened their group with a 12:5 win over Langworthy. They then played a friendly against St Aidens, securing a 7:3 victory. Their next match was against Honeywell which the team won 12:4. The next game was against Boxgrove and was again a Tithe Barn win 13:2. The final group stage match was against Scottish winners, Killearn which The Tangerines won 10:7. The team then progressed to the quarter finals as the highest scoring team.
In the quarter finals, TBS beat Ropley 7:5 and in the semi finals, played William Ransom School, winning magnificently by 12 goals to 7. In the final, we played last year’s winners, Hale Prep. At full time, the score was level at 10:10, so an extra two minutes were added. At the end of the two minutes, scores were even on 1:1, so the final went to a golden goal knock out. With Hale scoring first, Tithe Barn were eventually placed second.
Well done to the whole team for a magnificent team effort and performing brilliantly. Thank you to Mr Smith and Mrs Babinska for all your hard work and to our wonderfully supportive parents!
