The new OFSTED report from our inspection is here. We are pleased with the picture it paints of our happy, successful and vibrant community.
Justice demands that children educated by the state should have fair access to shaping the future so that all the doors in the world are open to them when they leave us. Excellent teaching in a strong and happy community makes this possible.
Thank you to parents and carers who came to the discussion about our new behaviour policy. This is the document that underpins what we do in school. If you would like to have a look, the finished document is here.
Congratulations to our wonderful Key Stage 4 and Post 16 students for their fantastic results. This has been another year of excellent results at Thomas Tallis which are testament to our dual commitment to excellence and inclusion. In Year 11 66% of students have achieved 5 or more A*-C grades including English and Maths – continuing the improvements of recent years.
At the same time the proportion of our students achieving 5 or more A*-C grades rose to 95% which is a record high. 21% of students achieved the EBacc and 22% of grades were at A*/A, while 100% of students finished with a GCSE level qualification. This indicates that the achievements have been right across the ability range.
As a truly comprehensive school the success of all our students is something at the core of our community and of which we are truly proud. Further detail about these results at KS4 and 5 can be found on the Exam Results page of the site.
Exam Results Press Releases can be accessed here.

Piano Concert 2014
Thursday 17 July marked the official launch of our grand piano. Students from Years 7 to 13, colleagues, friends of the school and alumni played beautifully to an invited audience and for guest of honour Alan Davey, Chief Executive of the Arts Council. Here are a few photographs from the evening. The concert provided a splendid finale to a year long showcase of Tallis talent.
International Collaboration in Maths
On 24th of June 2014, Thomas Tallis School was visited by German students from a Berlin Primary school. The students experienced a maths lesson with Mrs Zeshan and Mr Robson. The lesson was about the links between maths and football. German students spontaneously got engaged with the starter activity where they matched the given data (football scores of four different teams) with representations in the form of bar-charts, pictograms and pie-charts. Next they were challenged to find the fractions of different colours within the flags of various countries participating in FIFA World Cup 2014. They also managed to make 3D models of a football by successfully cutting and folding nets of a dodecagon. It was an absolute pleasure for us to host the German students.
