Many thanks for taking the time to enquire about the Thomas Gainsborough School. We are very proud of our school and the educational opportunities that it provides for our wonderful students.
Our school motto is ‘Excellence: for each, for all’ and this encapsulates our values and ethos. It is a school where every single individual matters. We strive to personalise a young person’s education, putting them at the centre of their own learning, to ensure that each student achieves his or her full potential enjoying an education that focuses on their own individual skills, strengths and aptitudes. Each student has a voice here – it is their school and their education. Yet each student is also part of a community, locally, nationally and globally. We want our students to become outstanding citizens and contribute greatly to the society in which they live.
We pride ourselves in being an open school: one in which parents feel they play a full and proper role in their child’s education. We encourage parents to come into school regularly and welcome their views, thoughts and opinions. We are providing a service, the singularly most important service a family can receive, the education of their children and that education is most successful when the school, the students and their parents form a strong partnership. Please come and see our school; take a tour. I am certain that you will be impressed.
Mrs Helen Yapp, Headteacher
