At Thornhill Community Academy, A SHARE Academy we have a firm commitment towards achieving our goal of becoming an outstanding academy.
Our mission is to improve the life chances of all our students by ensuring that excellent teaching and learning, within a safe and inclusive environment, is at the heart of everything we do.
Strong classroom practice, combined with an appropriate and personalised curriculum, rigorous monitoring of progress, positive behaviour for learning and support from home ensure the best possible outcomes for all. Our academy is a caring and ordered community with an atmosphere of calm and purposeful learning. Students are treated as individuals; we recognise and celebrate different abilities and interests and believe that everyone can fulfil their potential through dedication and hard work.
We aim to create a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for achieving excellence. We work hard to ensure every young person is happy, safe and successful by living our values and working TOGETHER - trust, openness, generosity, equality, tolerance, humility, emotional intelligence and resilience.
We have two very simple rules that any person who steps into the academy abides by, and that we fundamentally believe are of the upmost importance: work hard, and be nice.
