We hope you all had a restful Christmas and wishing you health and happiness for 2019!

Thank you to Mark (Ellen’s Dad) for organising a Royal Navy Wildcat Helicopter landing in Thornford School field. The children were very excited,  as the three crew came to meet them. It was very inspiring to see James Carver, as part of the team, who is an ex-pupil from Thornford School!
