Welcome from Mrs Wilks

It is my absolute privilege to welcome you to our website - I am incredibly proud to be the acting headteacher of Thorpe Primary School. Our school is a special place; we have wonderful, funny and caring children and a fantastic, dedicated team of staff who work tirelessly to ensure that every child is happy, safe and achieves their potential.


We have three key values that we live by: we are respectful, responsible and aspirational. These are our three school rules and underpin everything we do. We want our pupils to be kind, honest, determined individuals who have integrity and a passion to not only do their best but to be their best.


We are fully committed to ensuring that when our pupils leave our school, they are well-prepared for the next stage of their learning and life and we have high expectations of them while they are here. Our pupils and parents speak highly of our school and we have an excellent reputation for supporting all of our pupils, regardless of their needs.


We hope you enjoy looking around our school website and we look forward to seeing you soon.
