Vision and Values

Thomas Knyvett College School will excel at “Bringing out the Best” in students of all abilities and so increase their life-chances for their future success and fulfilment.



A ‘Great School’ is founded on strong relationships. We deliver an aspirational education, which nurtures and inspires a diverse and unified community where all members are PROUD of the part they play and feel a sense of belonging. We build self-esteem and confidence. We inspire effort and a desire to make a positive difference, believing in ourselves, others and the community. We welcome challenge and strive for better. We work in partnership to enrich our experience. We believe in every one of us.​


Thomas Knyvett College’s approach is both forward looking and traditional, offering a proven high quality education. We provide opportunities for students of all abilities within the 11-16 age range to achieve high standards within a caring atmosphere that enables them to develop socially and academically. We work hard to engender in all students self-esteem, confidence and consideration for others through their secondary education. We set high standards for behaviour, promoting traditional values that are important for lifelong achievement. We believe that academic attainment flourishes in this atmosphere enabling students to develop into confident and well-rounded young adults.


The college values the students and staff while engaging and collaborating with community stakeholders. We believe in a personalised and nurturing experience that puts the child at the heart of everything we do. Through high quality teaching and learning and a rich and diverse comprehensive education we encourage a high degree of individual responsibility and mutual respect, encorporating the school ‘PROUD’ values.
