I am committed to working with others and I share the schools passion to achieve Ambition for Excellence. It is an honour to support our move from good to outstanding.

At Thomas Fairchild our motto is ‘Make it happen together’, the school has an amazing dynamic of ambition, excitement and drive from all colleagues which is mirrored through our children.  We celebrate all achievements at every opportunity and ensure all children are proud of their outcomes when they put in their best efforts.
