How we ensure pupils make progress?

All pupils have additional needs from those pupils that have been identified as gifted and talented to those pupils that have specific challenges including English as an Additional Language. We develop programmes of individual support for all of our pupils that challenge them to achieve their potential.

We are justifiably proud that when a pupil leaves Thornhill Academy they are ready to achieve successes in their chosen fields whether that is Further Education, Apprenticeships or work based learning.

Our pastoral teams ensure that the pupils' wellbeing is of their highest priority from the moment the pupil arrives with us until they leave. Each pupil has allocated a tutor who deals with day to day issues, a Head of House and a Deputy Head of House who manage their team of tutors and also work with pupils who have more specific needs. The pastoral teams work closely with the additional needs department tailoring intervention strategies to the individual needs of the pupils.
