Welcome to Thorney Close Primary School
We have also started to plan the numerous festive events that will be happening in school amongst our learning between now and the end of term. The Christmas activity dates are listed below — further details will be sent out over the next few weeks and will be posted on the school website.
On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Thorney Close Primary School.
Our school is set in spacious grounds, close to the Durham Road, one of the main transport routes into Sunderland. Visitors to our school comment positively on our size and space, our facilities and the stimulating environment. They describe our atmosphere as calm and nurturing.
Being the Headteacher of Thorney Close is a wonderful job. We serve the communities of Thorney Close, Plains Farm, Springwell and Grindon. We strive to ensure that the school serves our local children and their families well. Our school motto is, ‘Where learning blossoms.’ Read more…
All classes are referred to by the name of a tree. The trees link nicely to our school logo of a tree and the school motto, “Where Learning Blossoms”. Click here to find out more about each class.
