Welcome to St. John's CE Thornham. We are all very proud of our school and I am extremely privileged to be the Headteacher here. Our school is a very special place where children and staff flourish through strong partnerships with parents enabling our children to meet their full potential. 


We hope to provide an environment where children are nurtured and respected as individuals to become the best version of themselves. We enable them to thrive spiritually and academically in a loving and caring school family, loving one another as God loves us.


We aspire for our SJT children to feel a sense of togetherness, have belief in themselves and their abilities, a willingness to try new things and aspirations of achieving something great in the next stages of their education. We desire for them to leave us feeling proud that they have developed the patience, confidence and the skills needed to be learners for life.


Through God’s love we will continue to flourish as our school grows, embracing the changes whilst providing for our community as Reverend Dumford did when he established the school in 1849.


Our school motto reflects this commitment- 'Love 2 learn, love 1 another.' Our children are encouraged to live out our six school values and are rewarded for this individually and as a team, developing their own self-esteem and team building skills too.


I am extremely proud to lead a team that is committed to children's well-being, achieving high standards and providing the very best opportunities for all in our care.  Staff, supported by governors, work hard to deliver a rich and challenging curriculum; to prepare children for future education; and to help them acquire the skills and enthusiasm needed to embrace the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. This continues to be recognised beyond the school through the many external awards and accolades that celebrate our successes.


Being the headteacher of a strong and supportive community with our positive and friendly atmosphere reflecting our School Values is so rewarding. People often comment on the warm atmosphere they encounter as they come through our doors, coupled with the exciting and creative learning environment for all, found wherever they look.


If you require any further information about our school or would like to visit us, please do contact me to arrange a suitable time. We very much look forward to a happy and successful partnership with you.
