Groombridge St. Thomas CE Primary School




Welcome from Headteacher

I am delighted to introduce you to Groombridge St Thomas Church of England Primary School. We are a small, friendly one-form entry primary school situated in the heart of the village of Groombridge.

Our purpose and overall aims are to aspire for excellence in every area of the life of our school, following the ethos, values and teaching of the Christian faith, and to enable children to flourish and fulfill their potential, leaving us as well-rounded and confident individuals. We want all of our pupils to flourish and fulfill their potential academically and in their spiritual, social, moral and cultural development. Understanding and promoting well-being and character development is very important to us at St Thomas'.

There are many factors which underpin the school including:

  • Our nurturing, holistic and caring ethos and values

  • An engaging, creative, broad and balanced curriculum embedding the arts, music and sport - we are very pleased to be sustaining Gold Mark standard for Sport/PE

  • The consistently high aspirations and expectations of all staff and our governors

  • The ongoing support received from parents, the PTA, St Thomas' Church and the wider community

Visits to the school are warmly welcome. Please contact the school office.
