It is crucial that, as we continue to develop as a school, we retain the atmosphere and environment that is ‘NTS’. We call it NTS-ness. We expect to ‘NTS’ all new members of our community. Staff and students need to understand why we are special, how we achieved this and recognise that it is not a ‘given’. To this end, we want everyone to have pride in ‘NTS-ness’.
We're very proud of the experience enjoyed by our alumni, staff and associates so we have created a showcase of some of our past pupils, current staff, governors, associates and friends.
I was a pupil at The Nelson Thomlinson School from 1979 to 1984. As a pupil, my experience at Nelson Thomlinson was enjoyable but I never envisaged being back here working as a full time Teaching Assistant.
My employment here started in 2005 when I began work as a midday supervisor. I thoroughly enjoyed this role, being able to interact with the pupils.
In 2008 I was given the opportunity to work part time in the Learning Support Department. This was a very exciting time for me. It is thanks to the support from my colleagues in this excellent department and the school as a whole that I have now completed my NVQ Level 3 and work full time as a Teaching Assistant. I find this a very rewarding position, being able to support the pupils to fulfil their potential.
I am very fortunate to belong to that group of people who wake up in the morning and look forward to going to work; I can honestly say that’s how I feel about working at The Nelson Thomlinson School.
