How will we get the best out of your child?

We know students perform best when they are supported by their staff and peers, excited and engaged in their learning and given the opportunity to excel, both inside and outside the classroom.

At Thorns, we offer:

  • A smooth transition into secondary education: Our teachers develop great relationships with students from the moment we meet them. Your child will have 70% of their timetable in Year 7 with one teacher. This allows the teacher to develop an understanding of the social, emotional and academic needs of every student. Your child has a secure base for their learning, and you have a key point of contact.
  • An innovative curriculum: Literacy for Life is an engaging approach to teaching the Key Stage 3 curriculum, helping your child to get a better understanding of the world and their place within it. We offer our students a broad range of learning and life experiences through our exciting themes – make audiences laugh and cry with your self-produced silent movie and develop solutions for real problems that are affecting our community and the wider world.
  • The opportunity to build futures from small moments: We improve the literacy of every student across the curriculum, growing confident individuals who are ready to take on and shape the world they live in. We pride ourselves on teaching the child not just the  curriculum.
