Prospectus

The information in our prospectus will give you some understanding of the ethos and organisational structure of our school. It will also give an insight into the teaching and learning alongside other general aspects of school life.

Every child is unique and we aim to provide learning experiences and a wide range of opportunities which will support and challenge them. We hope that children moving on from Thorndown will have a positive attitude towards learning and the social skills to thrive in our changing world.
