Thames South is a 200 plus pupil school situated in the heart of Thames with very experienced and dedicated staff who have achieved brilliant results with all their students and especially their transient families because they have smaller classes and they focus on building success right from the start and right across the curriculum. A parent friendly and inclusive school with an awesome very recent ERO report that says:
"Students are receiving high quality education in stimulating and challenging learning environments."
"Positive attitudes and values are promoted and students enjoy respectful relationships with their teachers."
"The school enjoys a strong and productive partnership with parents and the wider school community."
"Families feel welcome in the school and find all staff approachable and responsive to the learning, pastoral and development needs of students."
ERO, May 2006.
'We are extremely proud of our achievement levels, says principal Mike Lander, especially in literacy and numeracy where we consistently see between 90% and 93% of our students achieving at or above their chronological age. Our past pupils feature very well as Head Prefects, duxes and champions at languages, sports, maths, computer studies and life skills which makes us extremely proud.
"The principal demonstrates a consultative, collaborative style to leading school developments. He is highly respected by the school community and well supported by a hard working senior management team. The complementary strengths, knowledge and dedication of these senior managers have resulted in a united and focused direction for ongoing improvement." ERO 2006
