Welcome to Thorneyholme R.C. Primary School and thank you for visiting our website.
Our school is situated in the small rural village of Dunsop Bridge (just 20 minutes from Clitheroe), nestled within the Forest of Bowland and surrounded by beautiful scenery. We are blessed to be able to use our location to enrich our curriculum with outdoor teaching and learning.
The Forestry Commission has provided our school with a fabulous area of woodland for our Forest School sessions which take place at least once a month.
Thorenyholme is a very special place. Each child is encouraged and nurtured to reach their full potential, both academically and personally within a happy, safe and stimulating environment.
At Thorneyholme, we teach the children to have high expectations of their own work and behaviour, as well as a life-long love of learning. We support the children to have their own beliefs and dreams, to be curious of the world around them and to have a desire to contribute to the wider life of the school using their gifts and talents.
We are very much a ‘family school’ and therefore a close school family. We welcome everyone and we know that if a child feels loved, safe and happy then great learning soon follows.
The quality of welcome extended to all at Thorneyholme Roman Catholic Primary School is outstanding and the school is rightly proud of its local reputation as 'The small school with a big welcome!'
Section 48 RE Inspection Report June 2017
As a Roman Catholic school, we aim to provide a Catholic education for all our pupils. The children are taught that God loves everyone.
"My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you." John 15:12
Love is a huge part of our mission as a whole school and is embedded in our ethos: ‘We love, dream and believe under the umbrella of God.’
We are an inclusive school, where differences are celebrated and we openly welcome children from all faiths and backgrounds.
If you would like to visit our school, please contact the school office to make an appointment or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'd love to show you around and let you see and feel what a magical place this is.
