New Students

We would like to welcome all new students to Teddington School, whether they are joining at the start of Year 7, or at any other stage. We are conscious that students come for a large number of different primary schools and the transition to secondary school can sometimes be daunting. Our induction program for students aims to prepare them for secondary school and ensure that they have fun, enjoy learning and get into great habits early on in their time at Teddington School.

We hope your child feels warmly welcomed into our community and enjoys the start of their time with us. The aim which underpins all that staff do at Teddington School is for each student to fulfil their potential. As a consequence of this, we place pastoral care as a high priority. 

Pastoral care is led by a Head of Year. Each Head of Year is supported by an Assistant Head of Year as well as a senior member of staff and a Pastoral Manager.  Your child will be allocated a Form Tutor who will register the Tutor Group every morning.  The Head of Year Teams  for 2017-18 are;

 Year Group Head of Year Assistant Head of Year  SLT 
7 Mr J Golding Ms C Harris Mr K Watling
8 Ms N Pollard Ms M Tompkins Mr K Watling
9 Mr M Giles Ms C Hale Mr K Watling
10 Ms S Bailey Mr R Thorne Mr P McGrath
11 Ms S Thornley Mr J Ackerley Mr P McGrath
