The final year has begun for our Year 11, with less than 136 school days to go before the exams.
Please make a note in your diaries for a special Parent event, 'Supporting your child to SUCCESS', on Thursday 27th October at 4.30pm. This will be the first of two planned for this academic year. We will give you advice in helping and preparing your child for the mock exams in November and February and the real GCSE exams in the summer. We will also give you the latest tracking information about your child's current performance, along with other resources to help them and you. We also have a guest speaker (Lee Jackson) who will definitely help motivate everyone to prepare to their fullest for the summer exams.

We have been crowned Secondary School of the Year!
Sir John Thursby has been crowned Lancashire Secondary School of the Year. The award was made in recognition of the schools success in exams, the ethos of the school and how we prepare young people for the world of work, further education and apprenticeships.
The organisers said they had had more nominations this year than ever before so be a finalist is an enormous achievement. The awards were in Preston and we waited anxiously to find out if we would win.
When our school was announced as the winner, music played, applause rang around the room and lightbulbs from the photographer flashed.
We are delighted to be Lancashire Secondary School of the Year because it rewards all the hard work for so many people but we are striving for better every year.
Parent Forum: First Wednesday of every month at 9am at Sir John Thursby with the Headteacher, Mr Burton
