Following the return to school and loosening of Covid restrictions, the Toot Hill Big Band was invited to perform at the Bingham Twinning BBQ on Saturday the 11th September. Great fun was had by all. The band reunited with the Toot Hill Dance Band Alumni for the first time since their concert at the Bingham Methodist Church in March 2020.
Becca & Soph Youtube Channel
Becca Culley and Sophie Lloyd, who left Toot Hill in 2017, have started their own Youtube channel. The channel is dedicated to helping others understand college, university and careers. They have videos discussing CV advice and information based on their experiences through college and university. Future content will be focused around law and accounting careers.
If you want to know more about accounting and law check out their Youtbe channel and support our Alumni.
All Toot Hill School/College Leavers from 2020 onwards will still have access to their Unifrog accounts. You can login to the site here.
This means you can still access all their features like:

These features can help you during your career as they can guide you on which university, college or apprenticeship is best suited to you. They can also give you information on how to act in the workplace and help you write CV's and personal statements. So, if you apply for a masters or switch jobs in the future Unifrog is there to help.

Jim and Lynda Arnold
Jim and Lynda Arnold were students at Toot Hill School from 1954-1957. They were stationed at Langar airbase and became known as the 'Canadian Twins'. At the time, RCAF Langar was a materiel supply base to four Canadian Fighter Wings in France and Germany, contributing to NATO during the early years of the Cold War.
Jim and Lynda shared some of their experiences from Toot Hill School with us...
Jim: "The school was used for boxing lessons on Friday evenings. I used to attend these classes with one of the other Canadians. After boxing, we would visit Reverend Lillingston at the Rectory to play snooker while waiting for the last bus to Langar. Some evenings we missed that bus, but we were able to catch rides with dart team buses parked at pubs. The local fish and chip shop, which was still there a few years ago (at the corner of Market Square) was a favourite spot."
Lynda: "I believe that my life-long love for baking began in Miss Pearson’s cookery class. We started with making tea, lemonade and blanc mange and ended with the most impressive Christmas cake you could imagine - topped with almond paste, hard icing and decorations. What a gift to bring home at Christmas! My mother was very impressed."
