Welcome to Thurcroft Junior Academy


Principal's Message

Thurcroft Junior Academy’s pupils benefit from the friendly and purposeful atmosphere in which a vibrant and stimulating curriculum is able to help learners flourish. Pupils take pride in their appearance, progress and achievements – they are always keen to show visitors what their Academy is all about. Positive attitudes are fostered in order that our pupils become responsible, respectful and tolerant citizens of the wider world. A child centred learning approach utilises a rich range of learning experiences and cross-curricular activities in order to stimulate and accelerate progress. Pupils are encouraged to be independent; our very active School Council has a positive impact on the daily life of the school.


Both pupils and staff benefit from working in a happy school community which benefits from the strong support shown by governors and the wider community. Our bright, enthusiastic staff are dedicated to doing their best to ensure that each pupil becomes an accomplished and confident life-long learner. We challenge out pupils to aim high, to reach their best and to grow into confident members of society.


Richard Porter, Principal.
