Happy Birthday Thorn Grove 50 years old
Thorn Grove Primary School
Inspiring individuals, creating success
At Thorn Grove we value every child, recognising that their emotional well being is just as important as academic progress.
We teach the English National Curriculum for Primary Schools with a particular emphasis on creativity and transferrable skills, aiming to foster a passion for learning in all our pupils. We make extensive use of our Outdoor Learning Environment, with each class engaging in a variety of weekly activities outside of the classroom: team building, confidence raising, problem solving or gardening.
There are a range of extra-curricular clubs on offer, including lunchtime clubs run and organised by the children themselves. These provide opportunities for pupils to develop their own interests, leadership skills and collaborative team work.
On-site wrap around care for working parents is provided through Sunriser’s breakfast club and Sunsetter’s after-school club. We also host Little Acorns, a successful independent Pre-school.
Ofsted November 2012 said that Thorn Grove is a ‘Good’ school where pupils have ‘Outstanding’ behaviour.
