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

I am passionate about the power of education to open doors for young people, and in this age of results-driven outcomes often being seen as the primary measure of success for schools, 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. Talent comes in all shapes and sizes, and we firmly believe that whilst high grades are an important aspiration for all of our students, each individual student has much to offer Theale Green School in addition. 

Every child at Theale Green School must feel valued for who they are, and building confidence and resilience is an important part of the ethos surrounding participation in life at school. Student leadership, membership of clubs, involvement in the community, participation in sports teams, performance events and the Duke of Edinburgh programme all provide important opportunities for the personal development of our students.

We have recently invested in a refurbishment of many of our buildings, and our Sixth Form students greatly value their modern and accessible 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 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.
