The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.

WHY THAMES?
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. 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.

We look forward to moving into our new building adjacent to Clapham Junction station in September 2021. The new space will include multiple science laboratories, DT workshops, a food technology room, library, theatre and a dance/drama studio.

As well as A levels, our new sixth form will offer a co-curricular and pastoral programme that will see our pupils further develop their leadership skills and understanding of the world so that they are prepared for a successful future.

If you would like to find out more about Thames, we would love to hear from you.

These are exciting times for Thames. As we begin our third decade, there is increased awareness that young people require an education that prepares them to navigate life successfully. Faced with a fluid, and at times uncertain, world, they increasingly need to develop exceptional soft skills, resilience and deep-rooted values.
