A Vision for the Future

Part of the process of consulting members our community about the vision for Thomas Tallis School has involved posting a link to a survey on Facebook asking the 650 members of the Alumni group to respond to 4 key questions:
  1. What excites you about the future of Tallis?
  2. What is the most important feature of the school that you would hate to see lost?
  3. How can we ensure that every child at Tallis grows, develops and excels in the future?
  4. In your opinion, how might the school community become even stronger?
There have already been some fascinating responses (I'll wait til a few more appear before attempting to communicate them) but I was particularly gratified to read this response to question 2:
It's personality and ethos. I would hate to see it become a school where only grades come first. As long as creativity continues to be encouraged and the brilliant care for the student's personal AND academic development continues then hopefully Tallis won't go down the same route as many other schools where students a barely considered as individuals.
