St Thomas’ and St Clement and St James CE Primary schools have recently entered into a partnership.  Both the schools are Church of England a one-form entry primary schools with provision for 3-11year olds.  They are situated near to the Portobello Road and Holland Park.  When people visit our schools they frequently comment on our friendly and welcoming staff and pupils and are impressed with our commitment to our Christian values which include friendship and respect.   We are also proud to say that St Thomas’ achieved an outstanding Ofsted judgement in November 2014 and St Clement and St James achieved a good judgement in April 2018.
