Choosing the right school for your child is such an important decision. We want to show you what life at St Thomas is like for our youngest children. Starting with nursery, for children from 2 years old and moving on to Reception as children become 5, our provision is of the highest quality. Led by an excellent Early Years practitioner, our team gets to know every child, their needs and interests and makes sure that every child's light shines brightly. Working closely with parents, providing wrap around care and learning in a creative environment all combine to make sure that every child gets off to a great start. We would love to talk to you about our school but here's a glimpse of what we have to offer.

If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
