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.
