Welcome to Thornton Primary School

A warm welcome to the website of Thornton Primary School. We are a small primary school in Leicestershire for pupils aged 4 to 11 years. We are a founding Academy of the Symphony Learning Trust and work in close partnership, in particular, with Newcroft Primary School in Shepshed. Mrs Sarah Acton is our Head teacher.


As a small village primary school we know each pupil as an individual. Our ethos is based on support, challenge and encouragement in which we have high expectations of all our children. We encourage care and respect for other people, their faiths and traditions. We help children develop lively enquiring minds to make decisions which affect their future and to understand other people's points of view.

We have a professional, dedicated and caring whole staff team and we believe is that we can make most improvement by working together.


If any parents would like to visit do not hesitate to make an appointment. Mrs Acton looks forward to welcoming you and your child to Thornton Primary School.


We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.


If you would like a paper copy of the information on our website, we will provide this free of charge.
