About The Thomas Lord Audley School

At the heart of our work is a concern that every child is given the opportunity to be successful in school, and that they can be supported and encouraged to develop the skills, talents and abilities that will allow them to be participants and contributors to society after school. 

We are an inclusive school that has a high regard for the role that every individual can play in making the school successful. Striving to be the best we can be is at the root of the experiences and activities that take place every day. In the way we work together, staff, students, parents and Governors we aim to offer help to those who need it and accept help in return. All are welcome to join us, in whatever capacity, so that we can, through our Learning Communities, help forge an appreciation of how the wider community works. 

Our vision: 

A school whose members support each other in the fulfilment of the highest aspirations of everyone in the community and its surroundings. 

A school whose members strive to succeed, work to fulfil their potential, develop their talents and exercise their responsibilities as full participants in the community in which they live and work. 

A place to grow, to live and enjoy the company of others, a place to become the best person you can by helping, supporting, challenging and nurturing others. 

A place where only the best is good enough, where everyone contributes and everyone has pride in and respect for, the school and its facilities, its students, parents, staff and governors. 

A place where all are welcome, all contributions are welcome, and where those who wish to harm the atmosphere of mutual support and co-operation will not be allowed to distract anyone from the fulfilment of our vision. 

Lord Thomas Audley School and Language College is the only school in Essex providing Enhanced Provision for students with a visual impairment. The VI Unit, as it is known within the school, provides resources for students with a visual impairment in terms of specialist equipment, in-class support from VI-trained Learning Support Assistants, and advice of QTVI (qualified teacher of the visually impaired). Students with VI are fully integrated in the school, following the appropriate curriculum for their year group. Occasional lessons of withdrawal are considered depending on the students’ individual needs.
