Thomas Knyvett College is a successful, and thriving school in the heart of Spelthorne. We aspire to provide outstanding education for our young people and aim to ensure that not only our students, but the whole community become proud of the school and its successes.

 Transition at Thomas Knyvett College is about students having fun, making excellent progress, and feeling well supported from the minute they step through the door. Our Transition programme includes:

  • Personalised visits to each Primary School by a Senior Leader, to meet students and engage with them before their induction.
  • Collaborative work with several local Primary Schools, making strong links to Primary/Secondary Curriculum, and ensuring students are well prepared for Secondary education.
  • An engaging and exciting Transition Day, where students get a real feel of what life is like at Thomas Knyvett College.
  • A stimulating curriculum in Year 7, including all subjects from Drama and Art to Science and Languages.
  • A Form Tutor who has a small number of Year 7 students in their care, to ensure a smooth transition and immediate support when required.
  • A school that engages with parents/carers, including several events in the lead up to Transition.

 We are passionate about excellence in education, giving students the very best start in life with a firm belief that excellent teaching transforms lives.

At Thomas Knyvett College, we provide a blend of traditional values with a very modern context. We establish the traditional values of respect and self-discipline, and our students will wear their uniforms with pride at all times. By setting the highest expectations in terms of learning, behaviour, attendance and appearance, we develop a sense of purpose and self-esteem that naturally lead to aspiration, ambition and achievement. As a result, Thomas Knyvett College provides a happy, calm and purposeful environment in which students will make excellent progress and achieve good exam results.

 We are committed to providing the very best for every child. We very much look forward to welcoming you to Thomas Knyvett College soon.
