Thames Christian School is unique in its diverse pupil intake and personalised approach to teaching. We teach a broad and balanced curriculum including purposefulness, confidence and resilience to life’s challenges.
Academic rigour is foundational for us at Thames and in 2021, pupils delivered a very strong set of GCSE results with 29% of grades at grade 9, 70% at 9-7 and 99% at 9-4. However we are passionate about far more than this. We enjoy seeing young people understand their value, learn to honour and encourage others and contribute to the wider school community.
Small classes and excellent pastoral care enable us to challenge and support each individual in their learning and in building good interpersonal skills. Our ethos of compassion, respect and humility enables young people to grow in confidence and their appreciation of each other.
Thames offers a wide array of co-curricular opportunities, external competitions and activities, including the Duke of Edinburgh Award and our award-winning trip to Tanzania. These allow students to think outside of the box, try something new and keep their options open. PE lessons take place in our hall, while Falcon Park and Caius House are used for afternoon sport and matches. Regular sports fixtures take place after school and on Saturdays in a variety of sports including football, netball, badminton, athletics and rugby.
Our brand new eco-friendly purpose-built school building adjacent to Clapham Junction Station has been designed to provide the perfect environment for learning. Classrooms are accessed from exterior walkways bringing light, connection and fresh air to every part of the building. Classroom layouts have been strategically designed to enhance our ability to maintain our outstanding commitment to the ethos and culture.
