I would like to welcome you and offer a little information about what makes our school a great place to be.
Thorns Primary School is a happy, welcoming school in which children and staff enjoy learning together. Our school is a safe, caring environment and we strive to contribute to young lives in a way that is unique to a small primary school.
We are a smaller than average, one form entry primary school that caters for pupils from age 5 to 11 and we provide for a maximum 210 pupils. We have a committed, friendly staff who take time to get to know all of our pupils and their families. Our school is centred upon children and their learning; staff and governors are keen to help children learn in a fun, enriching way so that they are able to fulfil their potential in adult life.
We value communication and offer an open-door policy so that parents are able to meet with staff quickly to discuss any queries or concerns they may have. If you feel you would like to join our school community and share our values, please come and see us. Our office staff Mrs Ketley, Mrs Cartwright and Mrs Matthews would be happy to arrange a time for you to come and visit for a walk around our school and a chat with me.
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about our wonderful school. I look forward to meeting you very soon.
Mr David Priestley
