Our children’s happiness and well-being are at the core of everything we do at Thurlby CP Academy. We are immensely grateful for the support and encouragement we receive from our Thurlby families.

We hope the email extracts from parents and visitors below, will give an insight into the committed and caring ethos of our school.

‘I just wanted to say that I was chatting with my son last night about how lucky he is to have such great teachers and staff that really care. Something we don’t take for granted. Thurlby school as a whole is great and we are so happy with our son’s progress….’  Parent March 2024

‘Can I just say I had the most wonderful time at the open day. I found it so heart-warming and left feeling really uplifted. With working full time I rarely get to see the school in school time… was actually very special for me to experience it and see my child and all the other children in their element. I know Mrs Finch said it sounds cheesy but I do agree that it’s a very special school!’   Parent November 2023

‘I just wanted to send a quick message and say WOW!!! Thurlby is just beautiful. It is such a huge credit to you and your staff and to all your hard work. Thank you for the wonderful tour, I had a lovely morning and will come back to the open evening.’  Prospective parent following tour November 2023

'I just wanted to email you to thank you so much for welcoming us into your school on Tuesday. We have taken away so much and it was incredibly valuable for us to both continue to further our own development. We loved the atmosphere in your school and the pupils were so well behaved.'  Teachers visiting from Tower Road Primary School, March 2023

I was just wanting to pass on our gratitude to everyone. After moving our child to Thurlby we have seen huge changes ….  She is clearly thriving… and smiles constantly. Her confidence is soaring and has so much to tell me about the subjects she is learning. She chats happily about school… She tells me people are very kind to her at school. I just wanted to share with you how much of a positive impact you have had'.  Parent April 2023

'Thank you so much for giving up your time to give me a very informative tour of the school yesterday. It was so fantastic to see so many happy children’s faces in classrooms, confident enough to share their experiences of their school – wonderful! The genuine warmth and care you and your staff have for the children shone though so brightly.' Current parent before child started with us in May 2022
