The School Facilities
There are eight classrooms at St Thomas of Canterbury, each with its own coat area, toilets and washbasins. Every classroom is equipped with an interactive whiteboard and classroom computers. We also have a bank of twenty-four laptops which are used throughout the school. The large hall is used for worship, Eucharists, school productions, drama and is well equipped for Physical Education and Music. We have a newly created area off the hall which we also intend to use for Music.
St Thomas of Canterbury has a purpose built library which children visit daily to change their reading books. The library has a wide range of texts, including fiction, poetry and non-fiction. The non-fiction reference books are catalogued by colour and the Dewey System.
ST Thomas of Canterbury also has a Creative Arts Room which is shared with the Junior School and the Canterbury Room which is used for 1 to 1 and small group work.
The outdoor environment consists of a large playground surrounded by grass areas - with fitness trail marked on the playground and two trim trails, a wooden shelter, a shade sail area, school garden, a pavilion within the quad and an outdoor classroom (both the pavilion and outdoor classroom are shared with the Junior School). The Reception and Foundation Stage Children have access to covered play areas and their own fenced play areas.
