I am immensely proud to be the newly appointed Headteacher of this new academy  where all staff are committed to giving our pupils the education that will help them become the very best they can be. Our vision of Learn to Live, Live to Learn, aims to prepare pupils not just for today but tomorrow and life beyond school as we see learning to last a lifetime.

Thornhill provides excellent opportunities for children to develop as learners and grow as individuals. We offer a vibrant, exciting and inclusive all round education and preparation for life and we are justly proud of the great progress and high achievements our pupils make. We expect exemplary standards of behaviour and respect for all within our inclusive school community and strive to encourage a thirst for learning. Our young people tell us they are very happy here and we work closely with parents and carers to ensure a successful experience for all.

If the website doesn’t answer all your questions, or if you would like to come in and have a look around, then please don’t hesitate to contact us.
