An Introduction to Tanbridge House School
We were delighted to become the first school in the county to gain Specialist School status in the combined subject areas of Science, Mathematics and Computing. We consider ourselves to be a forward looking school and delighted that our specialist status has attracted interest from other schools in the country and proud of our new links with local and national companies. Through our success and with our innovative and determined approach we aspire to become a centre of excellence.
At Tanbridge House School we believe in providing an atmosphere and ethos promoting quality learning through high quality teaching and our curriculum is designed to support our students in meeting the challenges of the world they inhabit. We aim to encourage a real enjoyment of learning and to nurture an understanding of the relevance of the skills learnt therefore creating an appreciation of the value of lifelong learning.
