We are excited that you are interested in Teddington School as a preferred choice for your child’s secondary education. I joined Teddington School over four years ago and I was appointed Headteacher of the school in 2018. We have made rapid improvements since our last inspection and are very well supported by the Bourne Education Trust. We are expecting an Ofsted visit this year. The Governors and I are sure that after reading our prospectus, attending our open evening and visiting us during the school working day, you will share our belief.
Teddington School will provide a culture of learning and ambition, giving students the confidence to achieve and acquire the skills and values to contribute positively to society.
Our Mission Statement:
'In the Teddington community, everything matters, at all times. Plan, challenge, motivate, achieve.'
We have an experienced and talented teaching body that are supported by an excellent team of support staff who are fully involved in your child’s learning journey. Outside of the classroom there are a number of extra-curricular opportunities to engage in, for example, sports clubs, the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, science, maths and technology. We have a vibrant library run by our librarian and we foster a love of reading. We also run a host of curriculum related and other trips to Europe and within the UK so that we give children an opportunity to expand their minds with new experiences. All of these elements result in our children leaving school with the knowledge, experience and skills that are personal to them in preparing them for the next stage of their educational career.
Our expectation of students’ behaviour is high; kindness, respect for others and the school rules, exceptional attendance and engagement are most important. In return, we offer a nurturing and supportive environment in which to learn and grow socially. Our Head Girl and Boy along with the Student Leadership Team are heavily engaged in how we run the school and how we support all of the students here.
Our achievements rely on a special relationship between you as parents, our school and your child. I look forward to meeting you and working with you in the future.
Kathy Pacey, Headteacher
