When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family, often found at a park or a soft play! I enjoy reading and running in my spare time. I love teaching English and seeing what wonderful readers and writers you can become, all from the power of a great imagination. My favourite author to read is Roald Dahl and I love his book, 'The Twits'. I'm really excited to work with you soon.
Mrs GriffithsTeacher sharing with Mrs Bruguier
My name is Mrs Griffiths and I am a Year 3 teacher. I have been teaching at Thomas Coram for nearly 7 years now and I have loved every moment. Although I love Maths, I also really enjoy the more creative lessons like D&T, Art and Music. In my spare time, I love baking, spending time with my friends and family and watching films. As I am sure you will find out, everyone is extremely kind and welcoming at Thomas Coram. We always do our best to make you feel part of the amazing TC family and we can not wait to welcome you into it in September. You will probably have a mixture of emotions and thoughts about moving schools, but it's going to be really exciting. I look forward to meeting you all soon.
Miss WilliamsonTeacher sharing with Mrs Edis
I am Miss Williamson. I have been at Thomas Coram for quite a while now because it is a very caring place and I look forward to coming to school every day. I love helping children to learn but I particularly enjoy teaching English and French. I will do my best to make your learning exciting and enjoyable and, most importantly, that you feel happy and cared for. In my life outside school, I enjoy walking my dog Lottie in the countryside close to my home, spending time in my garden and visiting interesting places here and around the world.. I have many travel stories to share with you! I am very much looking forward to getting to know you; we have lots to look forward to together!
Although the Year 3 teachers and teaching assistants are the main staff that you'll work with, the staff below will also be helping make sure you settle into Thomas Coram well and work hard.

My name is Miss Hill and I am Head of School at Thomas Coram. This will be my first year here, so I am really excited to get to know all of the parents and children. But, also, I know how it feels for the Year 3 children starting at a new school. I know we will all feel very welcome as it is such a friendly school. I have a real passion for outdoor learning and love gardening when I am at home. I also enjoy spending time with my cat, Niko. I look forward to meeting you all in September.

I have previously taught across Key Stages 1 and 2; I love my time teaching in the classroom and pride myself on knowing every child in our school. Out of work, I enjoy time exploring the local countryside with my dog, going to the theatre and art galleries and travelling to places near and far. I look forward to welcoming you into the Thomas Coram family.
Miss WalkerLower Key Stage 2 Leader
My name is Miss Walker and I am a Year 4 teacher and the Lower Key Stage 2 Leader. I have been teaching at Thomas Coram for 8 years and have been the Upper Key Stage 2 Leader for 3 of those. I am very excited to be moving year groups and look forward to welcoming the Year 3 children and helping them find their place in the Thomas Coram family. I know that starting something new can be challenging and scary but at TC there is always someone to offer support and a friendly smile. My favourite lessons to teach are Maths and Art. I also love to learn new things about the world in Science lessons. In my spare time, I like to paint and spend time with my family, especially my young nephew and niece. I look forward to meeting with you all.
I am Mrs Parker. I work with children, parents and staff at Thomas Coram and I also work at Victoria School so some of you might know me already. My job is to support those children who may find their learning a bit more difficult than others for a variety of reasons. I tend to get to know some children very well, some not so much and some of you might not notice me at all! I have two sons - one is all grown up and now lives in Australia and the younger one has just become a teenager. I'm looking forward to welcoming our new Year 3 children and their parents to our Thomas Coram family.
Mr HallsExecutive Headteacher
I'm Mr Halls and I'm the Executive Headteacher. This means that I lead the school with Miss Hill, as well as leading Victoria School (so some of you will recognise me already!). I've been at Thomas Coram a long time because it's such a great place to learn, work and grow. For me, and everyone here, Thomas Coram is more than just a school: it's a family to belong to - I'm really looking forward to you becoming part of our family in September.
Our virtual visit page contains a link to a virtual tour where you can wander around and explore our school. Visit each Year 3 classroom directly here (Room 2, Room 3 and Room 5).
It'd be great if you knew a bit about Thomas Coram - who he was, what he achieved and why our school is named after him - before you even start with us! Below you can listen to a story about Captain Thomas Coram and the Foundling Hospital.
Are you feeling artistic? Artist Nick Sharratt shows you how to draw a foundling girl in her uniform. We'd be really impressed if you arrived in September with your own foundling picture!
You can even listen to a musical written for children about Thomas Coram and the Foundling Hospital!
