THS Alumni

We are so proud of all the students who come to our school. We have seen some truly ‘Aspirational, Inspirational, Remarkable’ young men and women come and go over the years. As such we wanted to create a page dedicated to celebrating the achievements of our ‘Alumni’. If you are a student here and you work hard, then perhaps you’ll make a feature on this page one day in the future!

Megan Shackleton

 Megan came to Todmorden High School in 2010. She stayed with us right through to the end of her 6th form studies and achieved some amazing things in the field of sport- specifically table tennis. Megan is part of the GB Olympic squad and has competed in the Paralympics in the past. A little bit from Megan below.

My best achievements so far are probably:

• 2019 National Champion

• World & European Medalist

• World ranked no.12 (seniors) & no.4 (Under 23s)

I’ve moved to Sheffield to train full-time in the national centre now, and I’ve got a place to study English Literature in Sept 2020 too at University of Sheffield! My main focus this year though is the European Championships in Sweden in September, where I’m hoping I can take a medal for Great Britain!

I’d say my favourite quality about Tod High is the “family” environment, I always felt the school wanted to support me through both my curricular and extra-curricular life. I felt cared about as an individual, not just as a student.

Megan has received 4 unconditional offers for university and is starring in the current parasport ad, which was on The Last Leg this week. What an inspiration!
