Welcome to Thornhill Primary School

The Governing board is made up of 9 members. Currently we have 2 parent governors, 3 co-opted governors including ourselves and 3 staff governors including the Head, Bernice Waite. We have 2 vacancy that we are hoping to fill shortly.

There is a wide span of skills, knowledge and experience which works well in creating a good team, with individuals taking on dedicated responsibilities. This ensures that all our aims and targets are met and that the Head and staff are well supported in their efforts to move our school forward. Thornhill had a monitoring Ofsted inspection in 2016 and we are delighted to report that we continue to be a ‘Good’ school.

Our next challenge is to continue to improve and maintain our good attainment and progress across the school so that our children achieve as well as they can whilst in our care. 

Our School motto

‘Every child is unique and at the heart of everything that we do’

This forms the basis of our work as governors.
