Welcome to the

Thornhill Academy

I am immensely proud to be the Head teacher at Thornhill Academy, where staff are committed to giving our pupils the education that will help them become the best they can be. We aim to prepare pupils for not only studying at the Academy, but for life beyond Thornhill too.

Thornhill provides excellent opportunities for children to develop as learners and grow as individuals. We offer a vibrant, exciting,  and inclusive all round education and we are justly proud of the progress and achievements our pupils make. We expect exemplary standards of behaviour and respect for all within our inclusive school community and strive to encourage a thirst for learning.
