The Thetford Grammar School Community

At Thetford Grammar School, we often refer to our school as being a family. We are very proud of the strong sense of belonging that pupils, parents and staff feel towards the school and we frequently meet to celebrate these links and the pupil successes that they foster.

We are united by adherence to our community values of respect, responsibility and resilience as the guiding principles that provide the environment in which pupils can achieve their very best. By uniting efforts between our school, our pupils and our families, we collectively provide a truly triangulated support system.

The sense of belonging to the TGS community is one that lasts, as shown in our alumni association, the Old Thetfordians, some of whom left over 70 years ago. You can also see the lasting attachment that our pupils form to their school in the stories of our leavers below.

Together we are TGS

The Prep School Thoughtings Club met again last week to play with ideas of Philosophy through poetry. The poem 'Pencil Person' was beautifully read by Elysia and all pupils utilised classroom materials to make their very own pencil person. Discussions followed that included asking how many things made up the 'pencil person'. Pupils disagreed as to whether the pencil person was a 'whole' or made up of many parts. They also discussed what was important in deciding how many parts made up the pencil person. This led on to the overall philosophical question of 'what is human' and 'what makes a person a person'- a move beyond thinking just of the physical! Particularly impressive was Olivia who started to question if we should think of a person more in terms of their mind rather than their body parts. Well done all! #TGSTogether #TGSPathways #JourneyOfDiscovery #ThetfordGrammarSchool #Norfolk #Suffolk #IndependentSchool #BoardingSchool

Mrs Butler-Hand was very impressed with the Year 5 recorder playing this morning. Under the excellent direction of Mrs Weyers, they have been perfecting their recital of a descant, treble and tenor recorder piece in preparation for Friday's class assembly. We are looking forward to having our parents on site for a musical, dance and drama performance! #TGSTogether #JourneyOfDiscovery #DiscoverTheWorld #TGSPathways #ThetfordGrammarSchool #Norfolk #Suffolk #IndependentSchool #BoardingSchool

"The support and camaraderie that I experienced at TGS allowed me the confidence to pursue a career path that at times felt out of reach, and in my opinion that is the greatest service a school can provide a student. I am forever indebted!” https://t.co/zrRusElIIt

We asked our Alumni to share how their time at TGS helped build their professional lives. "Without the support, extra hours and the personal touch offered by the teachers at TGS, my story could have been very different. Thank you, TGS!” https://t.co/dVoWH9zuRc
