Welcome to Thorns Collegiate Academy.

Welcome to Thorns Collegiate Academy. At our heart, we are about sharing the spirit of education. From the moment that I first visited Thorns, the warmth and energy of the staff and students impressed me. That spirit is what makes the Academy unique. We see it in the small moments – individual successes in the classroom – as well as the big moments – whole school concerts, sporting fixtures and assemblies.

Ms Nikki Jones, Principal

We believe that every person who passes through our doors deserves the very best that we can offer. We understand that each Academy is unique, but our emphasis and expectations will remain the same. 

Nothing less than Outstanding is acceptable.
