Welcome to Thomas Knyvett College
Thomas Knyvett College is a successful, over-subscribed school. We have made rapid and sustained progress over a number of years. However, we are not complacent and seek to ensure that we maintain our exceptional learning community. We see the College as the central resource for learning and support in the local community and continue to strive for excellence in all we do.
Whatever your present or future connection with the College may be, we want you to be part of our achievements, working together as part of the Thomas Knyvett community and sharing in our successes. If you are a student, please be assured that throughout your school career we will provide high levels of challenge and relevant support with a clear knowledge and understanding of your next steps. As a teacher we will support you to instil in the students a passion for your subject, deliver consistently good lessons and keep abreast of new techniques and research through the provision of high-quality CPD.
Students will be asked and encouraged to ask challenging and stimulating questions about the world in which they live, and the teacher will adapt in real time to meet the needs of every student. We work hard to ensure that our students have the skills and self-belief to compete and flourish in a changing educational and social environment, no matter how challenging.
We have absolute belief in our young people and we experience on a day to day basis the fulfilment that working with young people can bring. By talking about the importance of values such as pride, respect, open mindedness, unity and determination, and through working together we can help our young people to ‘bring out the best’.
“Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.” – Nelson Mandela
Our curriculum is constantly reviewed in line with current DfE guidance to ensure we motivate and inspire all our students to thrive by delivering a rich curriculum experience. We are all excited by the journey we are on and hope you find our website an effective tool to learn more about us.
