Welcome To Our School
A welcome from our Headteacher, Mrs Janet Sharp
Thank you for taking the time to look at our website and find out about Thakeham First School. The primary years of education are crucial to a child’s development.
Here at Thakeham we believe firmly in developing each child in partnership with the parents to foster confident, independent children who will want to make a positive difference to the world.
Children start from 4-5 years old in Reception up to 10 years old in Year Five. As part of the STARs group of schools, children then go on to Rydon Community College.
We have three classrooms, and recently refurbished hall, in which we have a wide range of PE and music equipment.
There is small productive garden which is currently undergoing redevelopment,
a great sports field and a wildlife pond.
We also have a library, an ICT suite, cloakroom and play area equipped with activities for children during their breaks.
Our games field is reached by a short bridle path, for outdoor physical education, a vegetable garden and of course, Sports Day.
The school was built in 1875 and is a Grade II listed building.
