Pupils and students at Thomas’s love our iconic blue and red uniform and its durability and practicality make it popular with parents as well. Wearing uniform is compulsory at Thomas’s but the children tell us that they are proud to wear it and enjoy the sense of identity and belonging it confers.
Uniform and sports kit are available from our online supplier, Perry. Click here for their website.. Parents can arrange for their children to try on uniform at their showroom in Knightsbridge and use their intelligent online sizing service. The PTA also run secondhand uniform shops.
Thomas’s children enjoy an unusually rich school day, with a generous allocation of time and specialist staff in the Arts and Sports. However, we also aim to extend, challenge and entertain beyond the regular curriculum.
We offer a wide range of extra-curricular clubs through which pupils can discover new passions and explore their physical, creative, social, global, moral and cultural interests with other enthusiasts. These offer an ideal way for children to find new friends outside their year groups, while enabling them to learn discipline, leadership and teamwork.
Each Thomas’s school has a lively and thriving Parent Teacher Association. The PTAs work in partnership with each school to ensure that the wider Thomas’s community is represented in decision-making and that parents are supported and encouraged to participate in school life. PTA Form Representatives provide an active but informal communication link between schools and families on non-academic matters, as well as encouraging parents to get together socially.
Each PTA runs non-profit events to foster community spirit, to inform parents and simply for our children to enjoy. They organise lectures and courses for pupils and parents about issues likely to affect family life, as well as staging Christmas and summer events.
Since Thomas’s was founded in 1971 a huge number of pupils have enjoyed being part of our educational family. Many of them have kept in touch with us and we are now welcoming some second generation pupils. We are always keen to hear news of our former pupils and, in recognition of our 50th Anniversary in 2021, we plan to launch a formal Alumni group for both pupils and parents who have attended our schools.
