Like the rest of the school, our sixth form is an exciting and happy place. Our focus on learning through inquisitiveness, persistence, collaboration, discipline and imagination as well as their experience in a large comprehensive school gives our students an added advantage as they embark on the next stage in their lives. They leave us rounded and grounded, ready to change the world for the better.

At Thomas Tallis we are committed to excellence for all our students. We want them to be respected, loved and nurtured and at the same time challenged and empowered to reach beyond the circumstances of their birth. We believe that all students can learn and that ability is not fixed. We challenge all our young people so that they can reach the highest academic standards while developing a love of learning to sustain them through their lives. The Tallis Habits of Mind are the glue that binds this together, the learning dispositions that allow all our young people to move from the known to the unknown, to understand the world and change it for the better.
We are delighted to celebrate the exceptional results of young people as an example of our happy and exciting community at Tallis. We value education to understand the world and change it for the better, and enjoy sharing these important successes with our young people. We're excited to be enrolling hundreds of new sixth form students this week and look forward to welcoming our new bigger year 7 as we embark on another year with the Tallis Habits.
