New building for Thames

Our new building on Grant Road

We’re delighted to have finally exchanged contracts on the new school building in Grant Road. This gives Thames certainty over its future and will give the school a state of the art building that reflects the ethos and standards that have been built up over its 19 year history. Construction of the new premises on Grant Road adjacent to Clapham Junction Station has already started and the foundations were put in place over the summer. It will be ready for September 2021. With space for a three form entry and a sixth form for A levels, this represents a significant step in our journey. 

Specialist facilities will include: three science laboratories and four science classrooms; art, graphics and textiles studios; DT workrooms; food technology room; assembly hall/theatre; dance/drama studio; music facilities including a recording studio; library; school kitchen; sixth form centre and use of an adjoining multi-use games area. The innovative design has classrooms around courtyards to create a light and spacious feel to reflect our ethos and will drive our vision by providing a contemporary, fit for purpose environment, where our pupils will be able to achieve and succeed to an even greater level.
