Headteacher Message

Welcome to Dr Thomlinson C of E Middle School’s website.

We are proud of being a Church school at the heart of the local community – a place where everyone is valued, respected and encouraged to develop resilience and confidence. Our strong ethos strives to ensure each child achieves their very best; academically – through a knowledge-rich, focused and sequenced curriculum; culturally – through an extensive programme of extracurricular activities and visits; spiritually – through an ethos of interdependence that flows through the life of both our school and wider community.

We aspire to achieve this by concentrating on each child’s needs and well-being.  It is centred around the development of core values that address the key focus of “Where every child matters, every child succeeds”.

Our exciting and enquiry-based curriculum is designed to both engage and challenge our children to develop creative and independent thinking through strong oracy skills.  We endeavour to nurture a thirst for learning in all of our children.

The broad content of our curriculum is enriched by covering a wide range of subjects, talents and future careers. We realise that in order for our children to be leaders in tomorrow’s world they will need to demonstrate compassion, collaboration, understanding, empathy and innovation.

Success, progress and celebration are very much at the heart of what we do; we look forward to sharing this ever- evolving learning journey with you.

Mr Liam Murtagh
