Aims & Values


Learn to Live, Live to Learn

At Thornhill Academy we take pride in developing each individual pupil to achieve their potential and make a positive contribution to society. We provide a safe, happy and nurturing environment in which we challenge all to strive for personal accomplishment within a broad, vibrant and enriched curriculum.


  • To create an environment in which all take responsibility for their actions, behaviour and learning; relishing challenges and learning from failures.
  • To recognise and develop the whole child: physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually, creating active and responsible citizens who lead a successful and fulfilling life.
  • To create a safe, supportive and happy working environment in which diversity is celebrated and pupils and staff thrive.
  • To develop a lifelong passion for learning through high quality teaching which fosters curiosity and promotes independence.
  • To provide opportunities for all pupils to engage in a wide range of enrichment experiences.
  • To provide a curriculum appropriate to the needs of all pupils built upon equality of opportunity, ensuring that all pupils realise their academic potential.
  • To develop an inclusive and welcoming approach to parents / carers and the wider community, recognising their key role in pupils’ education.

Our school would not be the same without its community partners, the dedicated individuals who work together on behalf of the community’s children.
