Neela Brooking, Headteacher
Welcome to Thornford School. We are a small rural Church of England primary school set in beautiful grounds in a small village, close to the market town of Sherborne. We have strong links with the local church, St. Mary Magdalene and our golden thread: Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself, is used to promote positive attitudes and behaviours amongst our pupils. From their first day in Reception, our children come into a safe, happy learning environment, where they are nurtured. Hard work and a growth mindset are encouraged and there is provision for the children’s individual needs in order for pupils to achieve their potential. They are well-prepared socially and academically for the next stage of their education by our dedicated staff.
