Welcome to Thorns Community Infant School we are a happy, friendly school and we extend a warm welcome to you. I hope you enjoy browsing and that you find the information you need. All the staff, governors and children at Thorns are very proud of their school.
Thorns Community Infant school has 180 children between the ages of four and seven. The school is housed in modern buildings with extensive grounds for the children to learn and play, including a swimming pool, library and willow garden.
Our aim is to encourage our children to develop lively enquiring minds and to provide them with opportunities to acquire knowledge and basic skills which they will need in their future life. In our school community we encourage everyone to support each other, try their best and be an active learner.
This site allows us to celebrate and share the achievements of our children, and to provide information about the life and work of our school. Whether you are a pupil, parent or someone interested in our school then there should be something for you here.
We place a great importance on learning key skills, developing a healthy lifestyle, making friendships and building self-confidence and a sense of self-respect.
We believe that each individual has a unique place within our school family and the contribution he or she will make is important.
In our most recent Ofsted Inspection (February 2017) Thorns was judged to be a good school.
Our partner school is Park Hill Junior School and together we form the Park Hill Thorns Federation; one governing body and one executive head teacher are responsible for both schools. Most of our children transfer to Park Hill after three years at Thorns. We also work closely with Brambles, our onsite pre-school and before and after school club.
