Welcome to Theale Green School

Headteacher’s Welcome

I am delighted to invite you to come and look around Theale Green School.

We are very proud to be part of the Activate Learning Education Trust (ALET) group of schools and colleges, and on our journey to achieve the ALET vision of “transforming lives through learning”.

I am passionate about the power of education to open doors for young people, and when our students leave Theale Green School, we aspire for them to have acheived an aspirational next-step destination, a range of qualifications and a sound belief in their self-worth.

Theale Green School has a rich and impressive heritage of the Creative Arts and Sport, which continues to grow from strength to strength in our curriculum; the opportunities afforded through extra-curricular opportunity in these areas, but also leadership programmes, self-development courses, the House system, local connections with businesses and employers – just to name a few, ensure that students have the time and space to grow, explore and be curious about their futures.

At Theale Green School, we prioritise learning from each other, all of the time. We are a school after all! Parent workshops, staff-led continuing professional development (CPD), students voice, governor visits, cross-Trust partnerships, surveys and feedback are all part of daily life and we know parents place a high value on our efforts to ensure our communications are both two-way, honest and open.

We have invested in a refurbishment of many of our buildings over the last three years, and our Sixth Form students greatly value their modern and accesible facilities.

Year-on-year our Sixth Form outcomes gather strength, and we are very much in the top echelons of Sixth Form schools nationally in terms of the progress our students make during their A Levels. Yet again this year we were exceptionally proud of the next-step destinations achieved by our students.

Students know that our Values of Respect, Hard Work and Progress are the drivers for daily life at school. We believe that if students’ emotions are balanced, they are willing to put in effort and they are motivated to go further, then they will be successful growing within our community.

We look forward to welcoming you to Theale Green School to meet our students and staff and join us in our mission in ensuring that “Theale Green School is the school of choice in our community”.
