Our school rule is ‘Be Kind’ and our Aims and Values stress the desire to engender in our schools a sense of social responsibility and a culture of respect, humility and of being givers not takers.
Every year all pupils support either a charity chosen in conjunction with the PTA or one of our two permanent charities, Thomas’s Schools Foundation and The CAIRN Trust (Children Aid in Rural Nepal). They support the chosen charities through fundraising activities and, where possible, hands-on involvement.
The PTA, parent body, staff and pupils are enthusiastic supporters of this aspect of the school and we all benefit from the opportunities available to engage with our community near and far.
The booklet ‘Charities at Thomas’s’ tells you much more.
