Welcome to Sir John Thursby Community College
As acting Headteacher of Sir John Thursby Community College, it is with pride that I extend a warm welcome to our school website on behalf of all members of this wonderful community.
Sir John Thursby is a very successful, heavily oversubscribed 11-16 school with a proven record of successful outcomes for students, coupled with outstanding pastoral care for each and every individual.
2017 saw a year of record results for the college with 60% of our students achieving a level 4 GCSE pass at both English and Maths. In a context of the introduction of more demanding examinations and assessments criteria, for the school to improve year on year results was particularly pleasing and I congratulate the students, their families and of course, their talented and dedicated teachers on these impressive achievements.
We believe that the community of Sir John Thursby have a school to be very proud of, an environment where everyone can thrive, be happy and achieve their potential.
Every day is Open Day at Sir John Thursby, if you would like to see us in action, don’t hesitate to contact us to make an appointment.
