Mrs BruguierYear 3 teacher
I am Mrs Bruguier, a Year 3 teacher at Thomas Coram. I have two daughters and two sons and a cat. I have taught at TC for 15 years and really enjoy teaching Year 3. Maths, geography, history and art are my favourite subjects to teach. At lunchtimes, I run art club and chess club. When I teach, I like you to have lots of chances to move about and we have a regular run to help us with our learning. I'm really looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you.
Mrs EdisYear 3 teacher
Mrs EdisI'm Mrs Edis and a Year 3 teacher at Thomas Coram. I used to teach at Victoria School, so some of you may recognise me from there. Â 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.
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!
Mrs KnightYear 3 Teacher sharing with Mrs Edis
I am Mrs Knight, a Year 3 teacher at Thomas Coram. I have been teaching since 2015 and previously taught at a school in Watford. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and travelling. I have a son called Harry and a dog called Stanley. English is my favourite subject to teach, particularly reading. It develops and improves children’s vocabulary, as well as supporting confidence in writing. I am very excited and looking forward to getting to know you and having fun learning together!
Mrs LattimerY3 Teacher sharing with Mrs Edis and Mrs Bruguier
I am Mrs Lattimer and will be supporting the teaching in Year 3. I have been working in schools for over 20 years and am very excited for my new adventures at Thomas Coram. When I’m at home, I love spending time with my family, including Wenzel our cat, I enjoy cooking and watching a good Netflix Series! I am really looking forward to our Forest School afternoons and am sure the children will benefit greatly from the outdoor learning. I can’t wait to get to know you all so we can flourish 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.
Miss HillHead of School
My name is Miss Hill and I am Head of School at Thomas Coram. I am so excited to get to know all the children in Year 3 and hear about what they enjoy here at TC once they have settled in. I know they may feel nervous at first, but we are a welcoming family who will make everyone feel settled and happy. I have a real passion for outdoor learning and love gardening when I am at home. We are fortunate at TC to have such incredible grounds and I am looking forward to the children using them more this year. I also enjoy spending time with my cat, Niko. I look forward to meeting you all in September.
Miss WilliamsonAssistant Head
I am Miss Williamson and I am proud to be the Assistant Head at Thomas Coram. I am passionate about my various responsibilities which include Safeguarding, English and Mental Health and Wellbeing. 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.
I am Mrs Thomson and I have been a teacher here at Thomas Coram for 20 years. I have even taught the children of some of my earliest pupils! I have recently taken on the role of SENCo after teaching mostly Year 6 which is a very exciting challenge and one that I am really looking forward to. I have lots of experience in this area as I have a daughter with additional needs (and a son who doesn't but is still hard work!) and have taught children with all sorts of needs during my time here. In my free time I play netball, visit theme parks and I love to explore new places. I look forward to continuing to work alongside lots of our families, as well as meeting lots of new ones too.
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!
