Thornaby Church of England School was founded in 1846 by the National Society. It was the first school in Thornaby and was moved in 1964 from the original George Street building to its present site.
It is a Primary co-educational school with its own Nursery.
The school is maintained by the Local Education Authority but, as a Voluntary Controlled School, the daily act of Collective Worship is consistent with the faith and practice of the Church of England.
Our building is single storey with ramps at the front entrance and into EYFS. Other areas of the school are easily accessible. There are two disabled toilets in separate parts of the building. Access doors are of an appropriate width. There is a disabled parking bay in the staff carpark.
We work together to enrich learning, enhance life, to build a future of hope for everyone.
Recognising its historic foundation, the School will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at Parish and Diocesan level.
The School aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.
