Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural Development (SMSC) is at the heart of our curriculum and ethos at Thomas’s Academy.


Our Four Cornerstones:


The 'Be Kind' Cornerstone describes our clear dedication to promoting a set of ‘Human Values’ in common with all of the Thomas’s Schools. These values of Kindness, Courtesy, Honesty, Respect, Independence, Confidence, Leadership and Humility align very closely with the set of British Values as outlined by the DfE (see below). Our 'Think Globally' Cornerstone further cements these values of tolerance and respect and places international-mindedness at the centre of our ethos, ensuring that our pupils grow up with a very clear global understanding.
