Please do not come up the drive to drop your child off at college. If your child has a medical reason why they need to be dropped off they will need to obtain a pass from the SENCO.

Thank you.

Please accept a warm welcome to our website from all students, staff, Governors, parents/carers, supporters and friends of the College.

Sir John Thursby Community College is a successful, oversubscribed 11-16 college with a staff team committed to providing the very best teaching and extra-curricular opportunities for all of our students.

Please contact us if we can be of help to you.

Kind regards,

Mr D Burton

Head teacher

Sir John Thursby GCSE results above National Average!
We are delighted to inform you that our GCSE results of 55% 5A*-C including English and Maths in 2014 are above national average which was announced yesterday to be 53%. This is a fantastic achievement for our students who have made such great progress at Sir John Thursby in addition to the progress they made at primary school.
Our increase of 17% in GCSE results over the last two years has seen us recognised by national organisations such as The Pixl Club of 1000 schools and The Future Leaders Trust.
We are also very proud that every single young person who leaves us after GCSE goes on to employment, further education or training.
Every day is open day at Sir John Thursby so you are very welcome to contact us for an appointment.
A reminder to Year 6 parents that applications are now due and we have been oversubscribed for the past three years so our advice is to put Sir John Thursby as first choice to be confident of getting a place.
Thank you,
Mr D Burton
