Safety, Learning and Respect - our three values. Thornhill Primary School is proud to be part of the West Lakes Multi-Academy Trust. 'Safeguarding given the highest priority' ( OFSTED 2019)

Executive Headship


Thornhill Primary shares a Head Teacher with Arlecdon Primary. This arrangement has been in place since January 2014.


The benefits of this for both schools have been great, the link with another small primary has contributed in a variety of ways to the success of Thornhill Primary and increased the opportunities we can give for our pupils.


These include:


  • CPD opportunities through visiting, observations and co-ordination across two schools
  • Senior Teacher Action Group
  • Joint residential visits
  • Joint trips/ visitors
  • sporting competition
  • collaborative planning/ assessment strategies
  • Sharing good practice/ learning through training
  • Providing staff cover for absence
  • Letter writing projects
  • Executive Governing Body
