Thorn Grove Primary School
Inspiring individuals, creating success 

At Thorn Grove pupils follow a bespoke, creative and engaging skills based curriculum where the emphasis is on transferrable skills and a passion for learning.  This is firmly embedded in the new 2014 national curriculum.  

We value the development of the whole child, not just in terms of academic performance, but also the well being and social and emotional development of all our pupils. 

Our Curriculum makes extensive use of the Outdoor Learning Environment.  Each class takes part in weekly activities outside of the classroom.  Children take part in team building, confidence raising, problem solving activities or gardening, planting and harvesting.  

We offer a range of extra-curricular clubs, including  lunchtime clubs run and organised by the children themselves.  This provides a valuable opportunity for pupils to develop their own interests, as well as their leadership skills and collaborative team work.

We offer Sunriser’s breakfast club and Sunsetter’s after school club, providing wrap around care for working parents.  We also have Little Acorns, a successful independent Pre school on site.


Ofsted November 2012  said that Thorn Grove is a ‘Good’ school where pupils have ‘Outstanding’ behaviour.
