Serving the whole community

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)


'The curriculum provides pupils with many opportunities to deepen their understanding of how to stay safe. Pupils are taught how to stay safe while on the internet; they know not to share personal information.' ( OFSTED 2019)
