“Where Learning Blossoms”



Children in an art class

Welcome to Thorney Close Primary School

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…

'Where learni
ng Blossoms’













From September 2017 each class will be 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”.

School Photographs

It was also lovely to see the children looking so smart for the school photographer. The photographer took both individual and family shots. Children will get a class group photo taken in the Summer Term. Hopefully  the proof cards will arrive in school next week. The proofs will enable you to view the photograph taken of your child and detail options of photograph packs available for you to order.
