Headteacher’s Welcome

Our school ethos and values

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to Thamesmead School

‘Where learning comes first’

….really does tell you what lies at the heart of all we do.

Our parents and students tell us that they love the calm, purposeful, friendly environment of our school; the way in which the staff are so dedicated to helping every child achieve their very best; and the amazing extra-curricular opportunities students have, particularly in sport and performing arts.  The result is students with all the qualifications, motivation and skills to enjoy the brightest of futures.

If you decide to entrust your child to Thamesmead School we look forward to establishing a close partnership with you to ensure that your child’s time at Thamesmead is both exciting and rewarding.

Yours faithfully,

Peter Rodin



About The School

Thamesmead school is a co-educational 11-16 comprehensive in the village of Shepperton, Surrey. Our goal is simple and captured by our motto ‘Where Learning Comes First’. It is to provide the best possible standard of teaching and learning so that our students have the necessary qualifications and personal and social skills to be successful in whatever future path they choose.

Every member of our community appreciates the high standards that we expect from each other, regardless of whether it is the way we behave, dress or approach our work; we all understand the importance of recognising and celebrating the enormous and diverse range of achievements that occur as a result.
