Welcome to the

Thornhill Academy

On behalf of our entire school community, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Thornhill Academy. All our staff at Thornhill are committed to giving our students high-quality education, that will help them become the best they can be. As well as aiming to prepare our students for success in studying at the Academy, we aim to prepare them for success in their life beyond Thornhill too.

Thornhill provides excellent opportunities for our students to develop as learners and grow as individuals. We are fully committed to all members of our school community, recognising their unique and individual potential. We offer a vibrant, exciting, and, inclusive all round education, and we are proud of the progress and achievements our students make. We have high expectations of all students, in terms of behaviour and commitment to learning, and of our parents in working with us as partners to support individual progress. Thornhill Academy is proud to be part of Consilium Academies Trust. As part of Consilium, we are dedicated to working towards the Consilium mission of 'Enriching Lives' and 'Inspiring Ambitions.'
