Thames Ditton Junior School Careers Site Eteach (13105)


Thames Ditton Junior School is a large school that takes most of its pupils from one feeder infant (Thames Ditton Infants), and sends the majority on to the local secondary (Hinchley Wood School), but also to a variety of local selective and independent schools.  We value academic achievement, but not at the expense of offering a varied and stimulating curriculum that develops the whole child.  We are a values-based school (respect, honesty, co-operation, kindness, determination and responsibility) and we insist that every member of the school community demonstrates those values, so that our children feel safe, valued and enthusiastic about their learning. Our site includes a specialist centre for children with learning and additional needs: these children have a ‘home’ class and are included in school trips, outings and wider school activities.

About Us

We have excellent facilities at the school, including an Astroturf pitch, tennis/multi-use courts, a science laboratory, an IT suite, a well-stocked library, on-site catering facilities, car parking and lovely grounds that offer opportunities for outdoor learning and relaxation. Thames Ditton is a very green area, close to London but with a village feel, with good connections by train and road, and we are close to the River Thames and to historic Hampton Court Palace. We offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities, working with outside agencies as well as offering teacher-led clubs. We are particularly successful in our sporting endeavours, regularly winning the District athletics cup, and also having competitive football, netball, rugby and cricket teams.

The governors and senior leaders have worked on a new strategic plan for the school and one key feature of our plan is the partnership we have with the other five infant, junior and primary schools that make up the Ember Learning Trust, the Co-operative Trust that we set up in 2017.  As a Co-operative Trust, each school maintains its autonomy, while we all benefit from a system of peer review, work moderation, joint staff and governor training, multi-school procurement and mutual support, and from our partnerships with Kingston University and Surrey County Council.
