Welcome to Thornbury Academy

I am delighted to welcome you to Thornbury Academy and to our newly developed website. We hope that our website will give you a ‘feel’ for the life and work at our school and for the caring and friendly atmosphere I know you’ll find here.

Thornbury Academy is based on the outskirts of Bradford. We are a 3 form entry school with a rich and diverse group of children. Our children speak 26 languages and come from all over the world. We celebrate these differences and have high expectations for each and every child. Children are at the heart of everything we do. We nurture them to become the very best that they can be. We work hard to instil a sense of pride and respect so that our children are well rounded citizens of the future.  

We have a highly committed, friendly staff who really do care about the children at Thornbury and often ‘go the extra mile.’ We work together as a team to provide a creative curriculum to promote high academic standards which will enable children to be the best in THE WORLD! (Our aim!)

We firmly believe that education is a partnership with parents and when your child comes into school with a wealth of knowledge. We aim to build on this to develop the skills for lifelong learning. Children learn best when home and school work together, so when your child starts school, it is where our job begins and yours continues.

You are, of course very welcome to come and look around at our wonderful school, just ring the office to arrange a convenient time.

Yours sincerely
Clare Daddy
