2014 marked 100 years since the beginning of the First World War. To mark this anniversary, thanks to a £27,500 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the schools of the St. Clere's Co-operative Academy Trust undertook a 6 month long project to learn more about the period and why we take the time to remember the conflict to this day.
Thameside Primary School has a long and varied history. As a school community, we are very proud of this history and it is something we continue to honour to this day.

Thameside Primary School's New Build 2017
Thameside Primary School underwent an exciting £2.6 million build to accommodate our ever growing number of pupils allowing us to become a four form entry school
The grand opening of the new new build took place on Friday 28th April 2017.
After a visit to Essex Regiment Museum as part of the HLF First World War project, Thameside's history club put together a news report, to feedback to their fellow students about the actions of our local regiment during the First World War.
In honour of the 30th anniversary of the old Arthur Street Infant School moving to the current site on Manor Road, the pediment which used to sit above the main entrance on the old school was restored and repaired. In the unveiling ceremony, two time capsules were placed within the pediment, to be opened in 2040, which detail every day life at Thameside Primary today!
The school is visited by Ofsted for the first time since reopening, and is judged as a 'Good' school!
The Infant and Junior schools are closed, and the school is reopened in September 2012 as Thameside Primary School, part of the St. Clere's Co-operative Academy Trust.
