School Description

This average sized primary school serves a culturally and linguistically diverse community. Two thirds of pupils use English as an additional language, and one third of these speak Arabic as their first language. Over half of the pupils are entitled to free school meals. The proportion of pupils who experience learning difficulties and/or disabilities is slightly below the national average. These include issues relating to social and emotional problems, and specific learning difficulties. Children start Nursery at the age of three and a half. Most transfer into the adjoining Reception class after one year in the Nursery. It is believed that the school is named after Thomas Jones, born in North Carolina in 1806. A passionate critic of slavery, Thomas Jones obtained a rudimentary education, and used his skills to emancipate his own children.

Catchment information

020 7745 6432/6433/6434

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Fantastic school”
AUTHOR:
I chose Thomas Jones School because of the whole ethos, the atmosphere, and the outstanding academic achievement. The children who showed me around were all delightful which cemented my decision. The headmaster, all the teachers and staff are amazing, kind, helpful and caring. The children are not only taught to a high standard of education but are always encouraged to their best. They are taught to have good manners, to be kind, and a healthy emphasis on diet and environment is always apparent. The children are always well presented, smart, punctual and respectful towards everyone. I am thrilled my child is at Thomas Jones School and is very happy after his first year.
“Wonderful school”
AUTHOR:
I visited this school and I felt like I was visiting a private school. It was such a nice atmosphere around, so clean, open and tidy. Children looked so smart in their uniforms. They show us around in a excellent attitude. School staff was so friendly as well. I will be looking forward for my boy to start his primary years in this wonderful school.
“Excellent School”
AUTHOR:
This school is second to none. Excellent Headmaster and Assistant and not to mention his wonderful hard-working staff. If you are lucky to get into this school you will be very very happy. Thomas Jones School is taught by excellent teachers and assistants and they work endlessly helping the children achieve only the best. They come in early most days and leave late. The Reception and Admin team also work hard and nothing is to much trouble for them and they always greet you with a smile. I feel honored that my children attend this school as I am sure when they leave Thomas Jones, they will be more than ready to go to secondary school with only the best education, dignity and exceptional manners of what they achieved from this school.
