Background of Thomas Keble
Welcome to our school. At Thomas Keble we have much to celebrate and are keen to demonstrate our work to you, as we know how important the choice of secondary school can be for every parent and child. For this reason, we are always happy to offer individual or small group tours of the school so you can see our community at work. If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please email my PA, Mrs Alison Clarke, to book a mutually convenient time.
We are justifiably proud of the excellent outcomes we see year after year for all of our young people. A full and detailed breakdown of all our examination results is included on this website by clicking here. We know that Thomas Keble adds considerable value to the achievement of all students, whatever their ability. However we are not complacent and are determined to raise standards even further. Statistics tell only part of an important story – it is the individual children and their successes that provide a stronger narrative of success. We rate the achievements of all, whether they leave with a dozen or more A*/A grades or achieve results not considered ‘possible’ when they joined us. We are proud of them all and their efforts.
At Thomas Keble, we believe every child can achieve beyond their initial expectations. We believe every child’s success is worthy of celebration. We have demonstrated the ability to achieve highly consistently year after year. We do not seek to inflate our position in performance tables through experimenting with students’ examination entries. Instead, we focus on the individual, tailoring a programme of study and pastoral support to enable students to leave us as confident, articulate and empowered young adults. We look forward to welcoming your child into our community and working with you to achieve these aims.
The aims of the school are for all learners to:
- Achieve the highest possible standards
- Become responsible members of the 21st century world community
- Care for and respect themselves, others and the environment, with a strong foundation of moral and spiritual values
- Develop the technological skills needed for the 21st century
- Experience a rich and broad curriculum and be encouraged to be lifelong learners
