Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to Thomas Johnson Lower School, a small but mighty school in the Bedfordshire village of Lidlington.

I would like to introduce myself as the Headteacher of TJLS and take this opportunity to extend a very warm welcome to all prospective parents, carers, friends and families. I am excited, delighted and honoured to be entrusted with the role of leading and growing our wonderful school.

We were recognised by Ofsted as a GOOD school in November 2022. With inspectors saying: Pupils at Thomas Johnson Lower are happy and get along well with one another. Everyone, including those who are new to the school, feels included and welcomed. The school is recognised for being at the heart of its community. 

My intention is for every door of opportunity to remain to open to our children – and I know that the TJLS School Community shares this ambition with me.
