Thomas Gamuel Primary School


At Thomas Gamuel Primary School we believe that all children and students have a right to have an excellent education in order to give them the best life chances irrespective of race, colour, creed or circumstance. We have high aspirations for our children, staff and communities. At the heart of our school, is a dedicated team of staff who are committed to being part of a school that is equipped to enable all staff and students to make outstanding progress. 

We believe that obstacles and barriers both real and perceived can be overcome by clear, strategic and targeted support that creates culture change based on sharing good and outstanding practice, collegiality, and a relentless pursuit of excellence. This underpins our high expectations and action and drives all the staff to provide opportunities for our children in order for them to reach the highest possible levels of attainment and achieve exceptionally well in all walks of life.

We believe that outstanding teaching and learning must be central to every decision made and every development introduced.

We are an inclusive, caring school where every child matters, we recognise that all children have talents and abilities to celebrate, and part of our role is to help children to discover these. We challenge and develop our children to become curious, autonomous learners who are inspired and stimulated through a rich and varied curriculum that is appropriate to individual needs. We develop children’s learning skills and by setting high expectations and exacting standards, we prepare our children to flourish, have high self-esteem and self belief.

Although working within the organisation of an Academy Trust, Thomas Gamuel Primary will always be a ‘community’ school. We aim to work closely with our parents, other schools and organisations, building partnerships which benefit, not only our children, but others in the wider community, both on a local, national and global level.

We expect our children to leave Thomas Gamuel as the best possible Thinkers, Achievers and innovators imaginable.

Nursery with Free Early Education places is available at this school.
