Welcome!

At Thorncombe St Mary’s you will find children who love learning, describe the ‘family feel’ of a safe environment in which they learn and grow and who engage in the challenges of exciting learning opportunities designed by outstanding teachers.  We encourage all children to give their all and strive for success in everything they do.  It is important to us that children achieve academically but are also happy at school, develop as kind and well-rounded individuals and take pride in all they do.

Emily Smith, Head of School
