About our school

 

An Introduction to St Thomas' School

St Thomas' Church of England Aided Primary School is situated on one site about half a mile away from the seashore. Originally established in 1901 and extended in four further phases up to 2001 the building is a delightful blend of architectural styles ranging from a large modernised Victorian hall to a very modern classroom block. There are eight good sized classrooms, an ICT suite and a large library which has recently refurbished. The grounds are extensive, comprising of two playgrounds, sizeable playing field and large lawned areas.

The school has a Church of England foundation which which is part of the community of the Parish Church of St Thomas, with which there are close and valued links. The Governors of the school appoint the staff and are responsible for the repair and maintenance of the building.

As St Thomas' is a church school, the staff are concerned that the children should grow up as faithful and practising Christians. We wish our school to be a place where Christian attitudes to life are both taught and lived in a way that produces a strongly based community spirit within the school and beyond.

The teaching staff are experienced and committed to the school. They employ a range of styles to enable the children to achieve the highest levels in all subjects. We believe that education extends beyond the academic to the development of the whole child in preparation for life not only as a secondary school pupil but also as an adult.
