From the opening of The Thomas Coram Middle School in 1989 until December 2017, the school’s House system took its names from four famous sailormen – Cook, Drake, Frobisher and Nelson. You can find out about these men here.
In the Autumn term 2017, a competition was held, following discussion between governors and the school council, for new House names which reflect Thomas Coram’s determination to make a difference to the life of others, rather than his sea fairing past.
Our Houses are now:
Malala Yousafzai (b. 1997)
