Housemaster: Nick Davies

Thomason is a House where each individual really matters. It has an extended family feel with a warm and friendly atmosphere and the House is run on relationships between pupils as well as teaching staff and pupils rather than on traditional hierarchical lines. The concept of mutual respect is key to the ethos of the House.

Thomason is a diverse and cultured House in which artists, thespians, sportsmen and musicians share their appreciation of each other's talents.
